As a late first/second-gen cypherpunk and long-term student of
NSA history I continue to be amused by mainstream press reports
which take recent revelations as something a) new b) you can take 
verbatim, without a giant grain of salt.

However, I welcome such opportunities to wean users from
the teat of TeH Great GooG, and cloud in general. E.g. over
at Zero State we've moved over everything to a virtual
server hosted in Iceland, and everything else to P2P
(Retroshare et al.).

The legislative has failed, cryptography so far hasn't.
