 +====== Encryption with GnuPG and FireGPG ======
 +
 +I worry about the fact that an employee at Google can read all my email. ​ I worry that they know many of the websites I visited and what I searched for.  With FireGPG and GnuPG, I can easily encrypt my email. ​ It's a start.

 +===== Creating a Key =====
 +
 +First, you need to generate a key.  Under linux, you do this with the following command.
 +
 +  gpg --gen-key
 +
 +When prompted, create the default key type, which is "DSA and Elgamal"​. ​ The details are not important, but this key is common and works well.
