quick thoughts on backup and encryption

Many folks around the casa carry more wifi-enabled gadgets than undergarments.
If you actually get creative and they're not for consuming only, a backup over internet (or by mailing DVDs to a nomad base, to be all 90ies) is highly recommended.

Speaking of creativity, if yours is wasted on the WWW anyway, make sure you have decent a backup concept for your blog / website / flickr pool instead of relying on a company.
