In this era of mass surveillance more than ever it’s time for Crypto to go mainstream.
This is one crowdfunding campaign that deserves all the support we can give.

GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) is the free/open version of Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), the gold standard in secure email and other kinds of eavesdropping-proof, authenticated, private storage and communication. The GPG project relies on donations and voluntary subscriptions to keep up-to-date and support new platforms. They’re running a crowdfunding campaign that’s shooting for €24,000, which they’ll spend on rolling out an all-new site (with Tor access!), as well as GPG 2.1, tutorials, subscription management, material for people throwing Cryptoparties (security-training events) and many other laudable goals.

Thanks to Cory Doctorow of BoingBoing for blogging and bringing this to our attention.
