Everyone needs to start using cryptography to encrypt emails, IMs, and everything else they can. I'm about fed up with government snooping, and if everyone encrypted everything they sent, we would all be better off. It's not really that hard. OpenPGP and its variants make it easy to generate public and private keys, and automatically encrypt outgoing messages, and decrypt incoming ones. It ain't that hard, folks, and I think it's our duty as citizens to push back against government invasion of our privacy. If anyone cares, my public key is available from public keyservers, and I can decrypt anything sent to me using it. If you want a link, let me know.
