[liberationtech] Intro/Projects

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the list and to encryption generally.  I don't consider myself a
good programmer  but I needed to learn a little about gpg for work and I'm
increasingly curious about it.  I had two ideas for things I could build
but I want to know if they've already been done/whether they're bad ideas:

1) Cloud storage.
I think it would be relatively easy to write a program where any file I
save in folder X automatically gets encrypted and saved to folder Y
Box/Dropbox/etc.  Any new files saved in Y which my key can open get opened
and put in folder X.  Since the private key password would be saved for
this to work automatically, it would be worthless if someone got on my
machine, but if one of the cloud providers gets compromised, all they would
have is a collection of encrypted files.

2) re-mailer usability
An Outlook (sorry) macro (sorry again) to save outgoing mail as .msg file.
Python script monitors folder were the .msg would appear, encrypts the msg,
composes and sends new blank message with the old message as an encrypted
attachment and the proper forwarding instructions.
