Told you so! 2 years ago…

Nearly two years ago I predicted the future. Today, sadly the future has become reality.  Here is what I wrote word for word August 15, 2012.  ”Knox County is at the epicenter of the need for encryption! For that reason it should be at the epicenter of beta trials and working WITH the encryption vanguard to engineer the most advanced and easiest encryption! I am proud to say I have been in dialogue with  http://privatesky.me/ and they are updating their program as I write this. For example, I asked them if they could have a time out warning system so when I write an email for more then half an hour it doesn’t automatically log off. The staff has been 100% professional and after I see the new updates I will be sure to continue to work with the good people at Private Sky giving my input on what as a journalist I would like to see.”  You can find that blog post right smack here http://politicalleverage.blogspot.com/2012/08/knox-county-newspaper-media-journalism.html Read More...
