Fear and Loathing in DC

Lately it takes a very compelling request to get Mrs. Y to leave the Sanctum Sanctorum and give a talk, but what better topic is there than digital defense? I love the smell of FUD in the morning, whipping people up into a frenzied paranoia, then watching them rush out of the room to get prepaid cell phones and put duct tape over their web cams.

In all seriousness, no matter which side of the political fence you inhabit, no one can argue that government surveillance is at an all-time high. I can’t even get the Security SOC Puppets together in the same room anymore, because they’re demanding a Faraday cage on their contract rider. So I’m happy to offer my perspective and some guidance to help the general public (i.e. nerd-challenged) protect themselves from snooping and digital attacks.

Special thanks to the the former (recovering) attorney and activist who organized the event.
