Privacy and Context

Via Esther Dyson, a ramble by Michael Sippey on e-mail, RSS, weblogs and so on. I'm not sure I need to be able to do everything in one piece of software. (I'm tempted to label this the Mozilla fallacy.) In different contexts, I'm comfortable using different tools. When it comes to privacy, I need to maintain a separation between work and non-work. That runs both ways: I don't want (confidential) information from work to leak to my private sphere any more than I would want it the other way around.
