Between the marketers
and the government
, I'm surprised we're not all using PGP
to encrypt every email we send. (even the ones about where to eat lunch.) And blocking the ones that don't to cut down on spam. If sending encrypted email was socially acceptable, I think I would make the effort. Not because I have something to hide, but because I believe email should be a private way to communicate. Using PGP is like sealing an envelope. Though, unfortunately, not as easy yet.
AOL is working on building encryption into its enterprise version of AIM
. I wonder if public encryption will be illegal by the time that feature is ready for release.
