Re: Anonymizing user, company, and location data using Faker - http://robots.thoughtbot.com/post...
"Good points, @til. I wrote the tweet to which you're referring. I didn't mean to imply that this is the only action one should take, just that it's one action that may help secure it. The stolen laptop scenario is one example of the data making it out into the wild, but there are others: unhappy employees or accidental script that sends emails or something. With this approach, you could have one person anonymizing the data and then providing the SQL dump to the rest of the team." - Dan Croak
