I wrote on Jan. 21 about a way to search anonymously on Google and Yahoo. Since then, I’ve come across two articles that provide much greater depth and detail on searching and surfing anonymously. They are:
- Evading the Google Eye, written by Daniel Turner for MIT’s Technology Review.
- Privacy for People Who Don’t Show Their Navels, written by Jonathan D. Glater for the New York Times.
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) announced plans to introduce a bill to prohibit companies such as Google from storing personally identifiable derived from a consumer’s Internet use in databases beyond a reasonable period of time.
