Encrypted SEO – inThirty 111

In what started in an emo like, ambiguous comment, our very own +Paul Shapiro lamented the change of Google’s new practice of encrypting search keywords. Our friend, and recurring guest +Tom Webster joined in the comment stream, and set off a flurry of activity on the security aspect of the change.

[Censored] – inThirty 107


With all this NSA news coming out, we thought it would be a good idea to discuss what has happened in the last few weeks.  We focus on services that have shut down, and are now facing legal issues for it.  We discuss what it means to use internet services, and how to truly trust no one.  We are joined by Tom Webster, our resident security expert, to discuss these topics.
