Anonymity vs Privacy

Here is a very interesting post by Schneier on anonymity and privacy, how they are very different. I also would add that this is also a good example on how trusting something you really don't understand how it works is not a very good policy. I don't expect all Internet users to understand fully every piece of technology or software it must use (for instance, on-line shopping), but I guess embassies and governments have the resources to at least ask someone if a technology they are thinking of using is really secure.
