I've followed and enjoyed your commentary on PGP and cryptography in general, so I thought I'd post it.

Any idea when Fillipo's `age` will be done, or how to follow its development, other than the Google doc?

Filippo should get to work! The design part of age is the hard part; the actual programming is, I think? maybe one of the easier problems in cryptography (encrypt a single file with modern primitives).

I am a little bit giving Filippo shit here but one concern I have about talking "age" up is that I'm at the same time talking the problem of encrypting a file up more than it needs to be, so that people have the impression we'd have to wait, like, 5 years to finally see something do what operating systems should have been doing themselves all this time.
