'Tis The Season For Giving

tweeted by Jennifer Granick

You remember when the world found out that OpenSSL (that hugely important encryption library used by most of the internet) was being maintained by just a couple of people because they were so strapped for cash? Remember how the technology industry came together and donated a ton of cash in recognition of how important OpenSSL is and how it really needs more people working on it in order to make it better and keep the bugs squashed? Well now might be a good time to consider the importance of encrypted email and donate to GPG. 'Tis the season for giving, after all, and if email encryption improves we can all benefit.

Thanks to Jennifer Granick for raising awareness.
