Crypto Wars

Crypto Wars

Author: Craig Jarvis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/12/2020

The crypto wars have raged for half a century. In the 1970s digital privacy activists prophesied the emergence of an Orwellian State, made possible by computer-mediated mass-surveillance. The antidote: digital encryption. The U.S. government warned encryption would not only prevent surveillance of law-abiding citizens, but of criminals, terrorists, and foreign spies, ushering in a rival dystopian future. Both parties fought to defend the citizenry from what they believed the most perilous threats. The government tried to control encryption to preserve its surveillance capabilities; privacy activists armed citizens with cryptographic tools and challenged encryption regulations in the courts. No clear victor has emerged from the crypto wars. Governments have repeatedly failed to forge a democratically acceptable framework to manage conflicting civil liberties in the digital age. Solving this problem is more urgent than ever. Digital privacy will be one of the most important factors in how we design twenty-first century societies - its management is paramount to our stewardship of freedom and liberty for future generations. We need to elevate the quality of public debate on cryptography, on how we manage security and privacy in the twenty-first century. Failure will result in societies sleep walking into a future where the citizen-State power balance is decided without due consideration. This book provides a history of the crypto wars, with the hope its chronicling sets a foundation for peace.

Bluffer's Guide to Surfing

Bluffer's Guide to Surfing

Author: Craig Jarvis Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/04/2019

Never again confuse your tails with your rails, your SUPs with your ASPs, your shapers with your sprayers, or localism with a friendly welcome. Bask in the admiration of your fellow enthusiasts as you reminisce joyfully about those moments watching friends going over the falls, and pronounce confidently about the exact location of the Ampullae of Lorenzini. (That particular morsel of knowledge could save you from becoming shark food). DON'T SHOUT when surfing. No one likes a shouter. Surfing is being at one with Nature; it is like riding on God's soul. The only sound should be that of breaking surf. On the other hand, no one likes a hippy either. DON'T SAY I'm not kidding, dude. I once rode a Great White most of the way down the Pororoca.
