How to blog safely

The EFF has a great page up today on how to blog anonymously, which in this day and age is growing in importance. Before I go on, here's the link.

Why is this important? Because quite frankly, just about everything on the internet is logged and very, VERY traceable. I blog with an identity. Because I do, what I say on my blog immediately reflects on my character. But suppose I wanted to write about work, without the fear of getting fired for it. Or suppose I wanted to write about politics. Or suppose I lived under the oppression of a hostile government and wanted to write about my experiences, but would be persecuted for it. You get the idea.
