@mwlucas especially after reading ed mastery I'm quite interested about your writing environment. Do you use ed or another text editor? Do you write plain text files and typeset it later? Troff or LaTeX or something else? Do you have many scripts/macros you use to support your writing/typesetting?
While the crypto wars continue, we would like to remind everyone of two very convincing facts for the pro encryption side:
✅ 1. Encryption can't be outlawed
✅ 2. Backdoors for the good guys only are impossible
Here is our stance on the ongoing crypto wars:
+ wer nicht weiß, welche Daten über einen gesammelt werden, weiß nicht, ob er etwas zu verbergen hat
+ es ist unklug, auf die Herrschaft über etwas zu verzichten, dessen Wert man nicht kennt
+ seine Daten preiszugeben nimmt einem die Chance, es sich später anders zu überlegen
= selbst u differenziert entscheiden 👍😉

#Plan9 has me rethinking my dim view of shell programming. When the most common interface is writing and reading UTF8 to and from files it's really nice.
