One way or another, you are always being watched, monitored, and tracked. Let's face the reality. Nothing that is connected to the Internet is by any means secure. You can tunnel all you want until your connection is reduced to 56K speeds and still, if somebody wants to find you, they can and will. Ultimately there's an IP address tied to your home or device.
While this is true to a certain extent, you might be surprised just how completely one can disappear online with minimal effort (if you know what you're doing). WHile a determined "hunter" with sufficient resources could likely find you eventually it is generally sufficient to evade the mindless tracking that's becoming so pervasive.

As for 56k speed, about 60% of the world still uses dial-up. Actually I think every computer user should spend their first year on-line using dial-up. Might teach them some patience
