I created a new petition on We the People on WhiteHouse.gov and ask for Slashdot support. Will you add your name? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by February 07, 2013, the White House will review it and respond! Short URL: http://wh.gov/PIOf/dot unite!

I'm looking for a program that has a user friendly interface, supports AES file encryption, allows me to store information on my SFTP site, and is accessible using Windows, Linux, and Android OSs. My children are coming of age where they are going to start registering with sites and services. I'd like them to use something other than my system of writing everything down on index cards.

The Judge may allow Daniel to defend himself against the governments claims by putting the technology into the light. Sounds good to me.

From the article, "In selecting a city, our goal was to find a location where we could build efficiently, make an impact on the community and develop relationships with local government and community organizations. We’ve found this in Kansas City."
I am excited to see the regional impacts to Kansas City metro area. Maybe my cable company will be jealous and offer some ultra high speed love at a reasonable cost.
