Think your email's private? Think again

Think your email's private? Think again | web learning | Scoop.it
Sending an email message is like sending a postcard, says scientist Andy Yen in this thought-provoking talk: Anyone can read it. Yet encryption, the technology that protects the privacy of email communication, does exist. It's just that until now it has been difficult to install and a hassle to use.

Did Shakespeare write his plays? - Natalya St. Clair and Aaron Williams | web learning | Scoop.it

The result? Energy savings.
