You think you are browsing anonymously, checking airfares to Elbonia. Suddenly you get emails advertising Elbonian attractions.

1: Document current pathways for personal information leakage.
2: Brainstorm technologies to block these pathways.
3: Brainstorm pros and cons of information collection to users.
