I would be ok about creating a blog using my google a/c to open other a/cs after learning about the open ID but like I feel about 'any' information on the web I am VERY cautious as to what 'personal' information I would reveal. I feel with the rapid growth in accessing information and the clever sparks that are out there, I remain very mindful that in time, any personal details could become public information. Maybe I am not very trusting but I would rather be like this than spread personal confidential information to unknown parties.

Online Privacy and Security,

Hi ya all
I found the information shared in this topic of online security very interesting. having recently purchased a laptop with internet access it has been very valuable to read the information about online security and privacy. Its very frightening to envisage how slack people appear to be with their personal information and security. I have to admit that with all the passwords and codes it can be a little comfusing as to which one is applicable to which login a/c. I think that it would be wise not to use your 'real'name and details but rather a psuedonym.
