“If there is no right to privacy, there can be no true freedom of expression and opinion, and therefore no effective democracy.” - Dilma Rousseff
We eat, drink, and sleep privacy. This blog remains dedicated to company updates, developer musings and special promotions (like No Knowing November - check it out!), while our daily articles at the Privacy Post stay in stride with the news. We wanted to curate some of their recent posts in case you hadn’t made your way over there yet:

We want to hear from you – what other topics are you interested in? What do you want to know more about?
We also wanted to share this TEDx Brussels talk – How the NSA betrayed the world’s trust — time to act – where Mikko Hypponen calls George Orwell an optimist compared to the realities of today. “Privacy is non-negotiable and should be built into all the systems we use,” he said. At the end, he calls for trust to be built through open source software. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we have been building Crypton, to bring privacy to the internet.
