In 2014, Jonathan Logan and I started on this book, ultimately releasing it in 2016. Being involved in online privacy on a daily basis at cryptohippie.com, we saw where things were headed and decided that we had to warn people. Still, I had hopes that the progress of evil would be somehow derailed, at least partially. Sadly, that has not happened, and things are turning in very bad directions.
And so we’ve decided to make this book available to everyone for free. The threat is both serious and imminent. Furthermore, ignoring it empowers it. We want to spread this information as far and as fast as possible. People need to know.
