Anyone can use encryption

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 & family will start using stuff as well, but let's be realistic here: if you can convince 1 out of 10, you've come quite a long way.
