[liberationtech] An interview with Snowden and more in Der Spiegel

I've always acted as though everything was transparent to examination, and
encryption was something I did as a favor for the other people in my life.
 So I guess that makes me more tin hat than all of y'all in a way...;)   I
grew up in a world where people just walked in your house or office and
took your stuff and rifled through it at leisure.  That's the issue the
folks we talked to in Vietnam had -- they said encryption ultimately didn't
do them much good, Tor didn't either -- they didn't have physical security.
 I don't assume much, ultimately.  I saw my dad's FBI files.  My godfather
worked at Beacon Press during Watergate.

It's why I'm here...
