A letter to PM Cameron about why compelled back doors are a bad idea. Worth converting to a UK e-petition? https://medium.com/@zittrain/dear-prime-minister-cameron-20th-century-solutions-wont-help-21st-century-surveillance-ff2d7a3d300c
Why a seemingly sensible proposal to compel back doors in Internet communications apps is a bad idea

Odd that it would be sweeter revenge to involuntarily connect up North Korea rather than DDoS it.

Meticulous, unsettling and only slightly overstated account from @guardian on the Whisper app's user betrayals: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/16/-sp-revealed-whisper-app-tracking-users
‘Confessional’ app follows some users even after they have asked not to be tracked

At this point in history, I think we can safely say that there is no way to guarantee anonymity on the internet. There are ways to make it harder for interested people to figure out who or where you are. (Posting to Whisper via Tor, perhaps -- though I imagine that wouldn't be wise to do on a military base.) But if a company handling your data and/or a government really wants to identify you or at least your location, they can. Am I right?
