Comment Public keys (Score 1) 209

Public key cryptography has been the solution for a long time, we've just shot ourselves in the feet by not implementing it on the client side.

Client-side certificates for instance, SSH keys, PGP/GPG keys -- they're all examples of public key cryptography that works to secure data and requires the user to only remember one good password instead of many.

Okay ... so help yourself out. Do a cursory study of software written by people with and without a good elitist education in computer science and mathematics and tell me whether their software is *better* than that of those like you who do not have such a background.
Importantly to me, is it less buggy and does it have fewer security problems?
Teaching yourself to do basic coding is great, but learning how to write *good* code is a whole other thing.
