Complacence Will Destroy You

Advice from the hacked (via). The raging reality of having your GMail account stolen:

<blockquote class="blogquote">What matters more for your immediate concerns, entropy is out to get you and entropy is going to win.  Learn this and live by it. Back up your hard drive every day. Encrypt the living shit out of everything. Never send anything in plaintext. Change your passwords. Don't give the Verizon/Qwest/Comcast rep on the phone your goddamned Social Security Number. Laugh at the Best Buy peon asking for your home phone, date of birth, and mother's maiden name. Compartmentalize every important form of access to the things you care about. Use version control for everything that matters. Have redundant copies. Stop using public terminals and sketchy unsecured wireless. I am watching you download mediocre internet porn. Just fucking stop it. Bring your bike inside from the front porch, because I promise you some kid with a hacksaw can take care of that cute little lock in about 30 seconds flat.</blockquote>
