2014: The year of encryption[^].
 
Because I would imagine that, for the vast majority of us, the content of our emails is beyond mundane and boring and simply not worth the effort of encrypting. If some nameless, pfy at the NSA has been unfortunately tasked with reading my emails and those of pretty much everyone I know. I would suggest resigning immediately in protest at heaving to read through such dross.
 
What I don't get (like with Target) is why business (who should know better and should have known it years ago) are not already employing (strong) encryption to protect their secrets. I suspect the reason is the same as the banks give for not beefing up security to stop credit card fraud: whilst they are losing less than it would cost to implement suitable security, there is no real incentive for them to do anything.
