OK, I'm not the only one with lousy NSA recommendations

I've posted on protecting your data from the NSA.  Seems to be a popular subject, and (via ZeroHedge) is an 18 page "Black Paper" on how to do an end run around the NSA.  There's a lot of overlap with what I posted, but there's some new stuff as well.  You really should take a look.

I'm still noodling on the bigger issue, which is similar to the problem of how you drop off the grid while staying connected.  The process is a lot more than just using Tor or encrypted email - you have to be able to form social networks, or it's basically back to the 1960s.  Good luck with any sort of group action.

Still working, but it's not an easy topic.  I need to simplify without losing the layers of subtlety.

Yeah, like that.

"FBI Surveillance Van 7"


Mine is, really and truly, "DEA Surveillance Van". In this neighborhood, it's conceivable there might really be one.

I may be in worse shape than lee n. field. (love that nick, btw!)

I named my wifi "NSA Surveillance" about eight years ago, on the advice of a net security specialist friend friend who told me to "name it something that'll keep the war-drivers from trying to crack it."

Hmm. I begin to wonder; might that have worked to my advantage, and made me invisible to them? I mean, they wouldn't track one of their own, would they?

Oh, well. my cover is blown now for sure...
