Re: What a load of bunk
60 Minutes had excellent story on encryption debate last night, focused on the Telegram app. The guy that wrote it had nothing but good intentions at heart (he was run out of Russia for not cooperating with Putin on his Facebook-like social media app), he wanted an app that could protect activist's private communication. But it got used in the Paris attacks and is a favorite of ISIS.
His point was very much like the gun control argument: this is a device that can be used for good or evil, all about the particular person using it. Encryption itself isn't inherently evil. But when your job is to crack information used in a heinous crime, then it's evil. When used to protect activists rebelling against a oppresive government regime, then it is a good thing.
Can't have it both ways, people.
