to my Nyx home page. I'm an admirer of the first four
Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and of the doctrine known
as "reasonable expectation of privacy." I also hold that the laws
of mathematics are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, and that among these is Primacy over the mutable laws of
politicians. Hence, I'm a proponent of cryptographic software like
CFS, rather than
legislation, to secure our increasingly computerized papers and effects, and
I support the tenets articulated in John Perry Barlow's
Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace.
I've compiled PGP 2.6.2 for Nyx users in /nyx/projects/awestrop/ -- enjoy and deploy! Other crypto-related items:
Among my "mindless pleasures" are the works of such composers as Mario Davidovsky and Charles Wuorinen, along with jazz artists like John Coltrane and Miles Davis, and non-bounded types like Keith Jarrett. My literary compulsions include Pynchon, Gaddis, Joyce, Lowry, Borges, and Nabokov, and my Internet interests are centered around cryptography and distributed computing.
