Wiki Offers Tips For Blogging Anonymously


A new collaborative Web site offers tips on blogging more anonymously for people who live in countries that restrict free speech -- or for those who want to write freely about their companies without the risk of getting fired.

The wiki, launched this week, is called anoniblog.

The site offers no guarantees of complete anonymity but bills itself as a starting point. Users, like those who visit Wikipedia, are encouraged to add and edit guidelines. It warns that bloggers can't be completely safe, but it offers information about risks in each country and tips for minimizing risks.

There are Arabic, Persian, Chinese and English versions of the guides, targeted specifically for people in Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Malaysia and Zimbabwe. InformationWeek | Blogging, free speech | Wiki Offers Tips For Blogging Anonymously | January 12, 2006
