@AC: Here's a better idea, before you release it pass it through trusted university researchers so they can show you it can't be truly anonymous then don't release it.

This may be a better idea, but it is still not good enough: "trusted university researchers" can only show they cannot re-identify the data, not that it can't be done.

And that's before we ask, "trusted" by whom?
