|--[[ This is a social and psychological issue not a tech issue. You should make up your own mind about how you feel about it but make up your mind based on what is said and what is known not what you see in a headline.

Schmitt University of Michigan, argues that the sex difference mentioned in the memo are unlikely to be relevant to the Google workplace.]]|

|Hi Tom & friends, |
I know your audience cares about privacy and I thought I'd share my experience with Mailvelope, a Chrome extension for sending and receiving encrypted email:
Once installed in your browser, you can create your private - public key pair directly from the extension or import a previously created one.
You can use it in Gmail and other web mail providers and you can include other sites as well.
It's easy to use and it seems to be fairly lightweight.
Highly recommended for exchanging private email with coworkers, family and friends.
Love the show. I hope our collective support gives you the fuel you need to keep going.
Your fan from Paraguay, the heart of South America
