Encryption can be used by anyone

I won't bother you with long-winded explanations about why you should use encryption. There are lots of sites out there that already got that covered. See the Links page for a couple of examples if you're interested.

This site will mainly describe how to set up stuff for yourself, and to let your friends know you're using encryption for e-mail and IM. In an ideal world, all your friends will start using stuff as well, but let's be realistic here: if 1 out of 10 get convinced, you've come quite a long way.
