[liberationtech] Haystack and informed consent—A legal/philosophical response to Jacob's concenrs

The concerns about Haystack at the moment are focusing on its steganography, 
rather than its encryption. The statement quoted below is probably completely 
true. Possibly presented in a misleading way, but technically true.

thanks for your clarifications, Babak. Just to double-check with Austin - has he 
also been misquoted here (a quote that sounds very similar to yours)? 



"it would take centuries for all the world's computers to decipher one of  our 
users' browsing sessions even with full access to the Haystack  source code". 


We've been made to believe that he is Haystack's founder and as such an expert. 
If neither of you are experts, perhaps, Daniel should be the one doing media 
interviews?
