The End of Net Anonymity In Brazil

Not my usual kind of Friday post... but it's stupid enough to be here...

The Brazilian Government is passing a law that means it's illegal to be involved in anonymous Chat, P2P, downloads, Blog or anything else (anonymous) on the internet.

How dumb is that?!?!?

So next time you're in Brazil, checking your email on your laptop, make sure that when your laptop goes off to Microsoft to check for the latest in patches (it's probably Microsoft Tuesday after all), that you tell Microsoft exactly who you are, where you live, where you are right now, your social security number (IRD # in NZ) and your mother's maiden name...
