FBI Removes Public Endorsement Of Encryption From Website

  • I got this tweet when Cory Doctorow published it, but couldn't find the missing info -- that is, the endorsement of encryption is still up, as a press release for the Los Angeles division of the FBI.  Upon seeing Techdirt's writeup (link below), I had the address of the scrubbed page in question -- and upon seeing it archived only once by the Wayback Machine, thought I would do a post...

  • BACKGROUND LINK #1: "As crypto wars begin, FBI silently removes sensible advice to encrypt your devices" BoingBoing
  • BACKGROUND LINK #2: "FBI Quietly Removes Recommendation To Encrypt Your Phone... As FBI Director Warns How Encryption Will Lead To Tears"-- Techdirt.
  • BACKGROUND LINK #3: "Everybody Knows FBI Director James Comey Is Wrong About Encryption, Even the FBI" -- Techdirt

Faust's Template For Posts Here At Minus 102 (updated)

The Memory Hole By Tepco by a female faust

To make this easier (these posts are actually rather complicated!) I made a template for myself.

Then I realized I was rather proud of it, and put it up at Pastebin.

If you want to use it, save it as stationary: and if you want to use it, I'm thrilled, but only if I know about it, so be sure and drop me a line (@femalefaust at twitter, same name at gmail with a 'dot' between) or leave a comment below.

Rather than go on about the experience, which was unexpectedly notable, I will just say: 
Be seeing you.

Update:  fixed a broken tag.  sigh. 
also added note: to use for a blogging system like Blogger, select between the "<body>" tags, as indicated (now) in the source.
