Hey there:

There is a good computer (and movement security) section on an animal
rights site - you can find the computer info at

There's a few of us at tao that are looking at adapting that for the tao
help pages to some degree.....

But for now, that page i mentioned is a good site for activists to learn
(and learn to teach others) about secure connections, encryption and other
cool stuff.

Mumia Abu-Jamal, not after."
