Re: <nettime> Hans Magnus Enzensberger: Rules for the digital world

If you have a confidential message use poetry for encryption.

"Moazzam Begg, who spent three years in Guant?namo Bay before being
released without charge in January 2005, began writing poetry as a way of
explaining what he was going through. He knew that everything he wrote
would be censored, so used poetry to try to describe his situation to his
family." (

I think today's kids are instinctively aware of those issues. It's a matter
of "being On/Off" for them, as they put it into words. Like walking down a
street in public, "being On".
