The BBC's online and broadcast news technology programme Click has a report by David Reid: - Bloggers' search for anonymity
This examines some of the reasons for the need for anonymity and some of ways to get around some of repressive Government censorship of the internet.
It shows some peaceful direct action at an international tourism promotion show by Reporters Sans Frontièrs (Reporters Without Borders), who pointed out that some of the countries trying to attract Western tourists were also busy locking up and torturing journalists and bloggers, simply for publishing even mild or implied criticisms of the regime.
The programme also mentioned RSF's Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents
This should read in conjunction with the more recent and complementary
hints and tips for whistleblowers, journalists and bloggers by Spy Blog, and the Digital Security and Privacy for Human Rights Defenders manual by Front Line.
The programme mentioned the use of proxy servers to help overcome some of the Government internet censorship , which led on to a simple (cookery based) illustration of TOR, The Onion Routing scheme, which is apparently going to be used, together with other software, by the WikiLeak.orgproject.
The programme contributors give some obvious but important advice i.e. not to actually write blog articles under your real name.
There is some low tech advice about circumventing some internet censorship
e.g.by the inseration of extra punctuation around and between keywords like Tiananmen Square, e.g. perhaps +Tiananmen+Square+, which are still readable by humans, in much the same way as various spam emails attempt to overcome Bayesian heuristic anti-spam filter censorship
For a mainstream media programme, aimed at a worldwide audience, this is quite a good flavour of what this blog and the WikiLeaks.org project is about.
If a few more people out of the BBC Click programme's large online and broadcast audience are encouraged to try out say TOR, then that will be a good thing.
