How Can I Protect Myself from Government Snoopers?
The UK has just passed the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, at the third attempt, and it will become law by the end of the year. The bill was instigated by the then home secretary, Theresa May, in 2012. It is better known as the snooper’s charter.

Jim Killock, the director of Open Rights Group, described it as the “most extreme surveillance law ever passed in a democracy”. It more or less removes your right to online privacy.

The law forces internet service providers to keep a record of all the websites – not the actual pages – you visit for up to a year. It also obliges companies to decrypt data on demand and gives government security services the power to hack your computers, tablets, mobile phones and other devices.

How to Encrypt Your Entire Life in Less Than an Hour
Andy Grove was a Hungarian refugee who escaped communism, studied engineering, and ultimately lead the personal computer revolution as the CEO of Intel. He died earlier this year in Silicon Valley after a long fight with Parkinson’s disease.

When one of the most powerful people in the world encourages us to be paranoid, maybe we should listen.

And Grove isn’t the only powerful person urging caution. Even the director of the FBI — the same official who recently paid hackers a million dollars to unlock a shooter’s iPhone — is encouraging everyone to cover their webcams.

But you obey the law. What do you have to worry about? As the motto of the United Kingdom’s surveillance program reminds us, “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear.”

Well, law-abiding citizens do have reason to fear. They do have reasons to secure their devices, their files, and their communications with loved ones.

“If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged.” — Cardinal Richelieu in 1641

In this article, I will show you how you can protect yourself by leveraging state-of-the-art encryption. In a single sitting, you can make great strides toward securing your privacy.

Probe of Leaked U.S. NSA Hacking Tools Examines Operative's 'Mistake'
A U.S. investigation into a leak of hacking tools used by the National Security Agency is focusing on a theory that one of its operatives carelessly left them available on a remote computer and Russian hackers found them, four people with direct knowledge of the probe told Reuters.

The tools, which enable hackers to exploit software flaws in computer and communications systems from vendors such as Cisco Systems and Fortinet Inc, were dumped onto public websites last month by a group calling itself Shadow Brokers.

Why Don't All Companies Buy Developers the Best Hardware?
The cost of employing a programmer in my area is $50 to $100 an hour. A top end machine is only $3,000, so the cost of buying a truly great computer every three years comes to $0.50/hour. ($3000/(150 wks * 40 hours))

Do you need a top-end machine? No, the $3000 here is to represent the most that could possibly be spent not the amount that I would expect. That's roughly the cost of a top-end iMac or MacBook (17 inch).

Fillerati - Faux Latin is a Dead Language
I made Fillerati because I grew tired of reading "Lorem ipsum..." on every new design I was working on. It's built with HTML5 and CSS2/CSS3, and consequently is best viewed in a modern browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera. Interactivity is thanks to the jQuery JavaScript library, served via the Google Ajax Libraries API. Custom fonts for the logo and author/title (Tangerine & IM Fell Great Primer respectively) are rendered with the Google Font API. Newly added is optional translation via the Google Language API (no promises on that one). Server side the app is coded in Python and deployed on Google App Engine. Domain management, email, etc. provided by Google Apps. The source for the public domain filler text is provided by Project Gutenburg (not sanitized—use at your own risk!). The background tile is from Tileables; getting stuff onto your clipboard from Zero Clipboard. Designed, built and deployed in 48 hours. If you have any questions, comments, or you'd like to suggest an author or title, you can reach me at or via Twitter.
