secret.rar – jan huijben

A wonderful piece exploring the balance between safety and accessibility of private information/data.

Secret.rar wasn't initially about encryption, but about the question of whether it's still a secret if you can never find out what it is. I like the political connotation that comes with it, though. It's an important issue in a time when individual privacy is being eroded by an increasingly secretive state apparatus. – Jan Huijben
