Jan 31, 2009
There's an interesting groud sourced effort that was put together by a bunch of volunteers with the goal of creating a free book to teach people about privacy and cryptography.

This 392 page, Creative Commons licensed handbook is designed to help those with no prior experience to protect their basic human right to Privacy in networked, digital domains. By covering a broad array of topics and use contexts it is written to help anyone wishing to understand and then quickly mitigate many kinds of vulnerability using free, open-source tools. Most importantly however this handbook is intended as a reference for use during Crypto Parties. It is being continuously developed.
It can be edited here:
It can be edited directly in the browser here (exporting to PDF, e-pub formats): . Please note all edits will be reviewed before release. All authors will be credited. Please use language and methods an absolute newbie can understand.
Either way, the discussion on how to proceed can be held at
WARNING! - Due to the rapid development of the Handbook, as well as lack of rigorous peer review, there may be advice within that does not guarantee your safety - be vigilant! This is version 1. Each version of the book will improve upon the last, if you find any errors, please contribute your suggested changes. IMPORTANT! - PPTP was referenced in this book as one method for use when setting up Virtual Private Networks. It is easily breakable. Do not use it!

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
