Good point - I left exploring the techniques and pros and cons for a future
post :)  Clarifying and explaining the options, particularly for the open
data community who perhaps are less up to speed with privacy issues, will
be really helpful.

If there isn't a good existing reference, maybe this group could start to
draft something...

I hope the talk goes well - will there be a recording by any chance?   And
do point people here :)

Best regards,
