For most people the following is sufficient:

- Use search engines anonymously, don't sign in.

- Clear browser cache and cookies after each use.

For the paranoids:

- Use anonymizer software installed on your computer to block additional system information that makes you identifiable.

- Subscribe to a proxy service that sits between you and the internet and relays all information sent and received.

eswiderski is right. You've got to become untraceable. However, this is more easily accomplished than learning to become a magician and snapping your fingers to become invisible, or subscribing to a proxy service:

Instead of using google or yahoo, or any of the other - well, or somewhat known search engines use www.startpage.com which will give you an accurate search without recording your IP address, or your searches, or anything, and gives you the option of visiting the web page you decide to visit directly (this for trusted sites) or visiting through their Ixquick Proxy where none of your personal info is recorded or forwarded, and no cookies. Nothing to download - no subscriber fees.

You now have the power to strike back against the machines, and those who see you simply as a mark to profit from without regard for your privacy. Try it, like it, then spread the word.

Regards to all,

Progressive Avenger

Our planet's lungs are dying...

Trees are like our planet’s lungs. Every second of every day, they’re absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and converting it into energy.

In fact, according to a study by researchers at NASA, each year, tropical rainforests absorb a staggering 1.4 billion metric tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
