OpenPGP Encryption on All the Things (Linux Box, Gmail, iPhone)

So I stopped being lazy and have encryption implemented across all of my devices. Now, I have a 4096-bit RSA OpenPGP key, The Chrome extension Mailvelope is handling Gmail encryption, Thunderbird and Enigmail are configured on the Linux box, and IPGMail is setup for the same on my iPhone.

For the record I’m not worried about Edward Snowden and the NSA. Governments are going to do what they need to do. And sadly, I don’t really generate much, if any, content really worthy of encryption. Most of us don’t and frankly that’s why we’re collectively lazy. I’m just trying to learn more, better manage my personal security and make it easier and safer for people in less-free places (as many Blogs of War readers are) to contact me.
