public authorities "can secretly compel tech companies and individual technologists, including network administrators, sysadmins, and open source developers – to re-engineer software and hardware under their control, so that it can be used to spy on their users. Engineers can be penalized for refusing to comply with fines and prison"... sounds like a nightmare but it is reality in the #UK and #Australia #eff #spy #privacy #security

Well since none of you have my back, I reckon I'm just stuffed for trying to fight this multi-headed monster myself.  That's OK. You're next. Then we'll all be in jail and encryption will be for outlaws. In the meantime I'll try and make some progress on my own because I really think this is important.

@mike @bjoern @aral Quite simply, I don't know how to fight it. As is I just get extremely frustrated by it.
