A couple of fun facts. The first, this story was based on an Electric Company script written by Joss Whedon’s dad, Tom Whedon. The second, flag pins were approximately 40% larger back then.
Hope everyone is having a great Easter!

#5. Staying Completely Anonymous Was Such a Pain in the Ass That I Gave Up Trying
WikiLeaks recommends that its informants use Tor for anonymity. That’s what I used to run my site for the first couple months, operating online with a masked IP address, thinking it was a watertight guarantee of anonymity, until I learned that it doesn’t really guarantee shit. Then there’s the fact that the Internet doesn’t take kindly to people with masked IP addresses. Try logging into Gmail while signed into Tor and you’ll discover that Gmail instantly locks you out. Trying to build and operate a WordPress blog with a masked IP address is like trying to play piano wearing boxing gloves. Features are stripped to the bare minimum, and loading times are in 1990s territory.
