    I am liking the short 5 min 30,000 ft explanations of topics such as encryption keys. I especially like the way you come from personal experience of breaking it.

  • Thanks, Jeremy! There will be more on the way after I get settled in Iowa next month.

  • Great to see the Ragbrai shirt. I was born and raised in Iowa City Iowa for 23 years. It brought back great memories. The video time and talk was perfect for the topic.
