Went to the pub with cipregoth, purplerabbits, and sibelian, where we only talked crypto with ciphergoth for a short while. We resolved to set aside an afternoon of talking crypto in private without harming anyone else. I must point out here that my knowledge of cryptography is close to zero, and my lack of appetite for mathematics doesn't help. I keep pestering ciphergoth to write a book explaining the landscape of possibilities (what sort of things can be made secure and what can't) without explaining the mechanisms, for the rest of us.
Bounce, bounce, I shall go and do things (lazily)
