Encryption is looking more relevant.

I have posted about our privacy rights before so this wont be protracted. But this NYT article by Charlie Savage really got me going. The thing that most frustrates me is that these reports of and these threats of the loss of our privacies are so material to our disregard for our rights.

On a technical note, the article speaks to law enforcements desire to have access at certain points along certain provider based services. This is an area where those providers may and in many cases likely will continue to bow to government pressure and relinquish that access to police powers. However we, as the users, the people, have our own tools we can use to maintain our privacy. If by chance you feel you have nothing to hide, fine. Exercise you rights anyway, lest you forfeit them by neglect.
