I remember my PGP T-shirt well!

When Phil was being harassed by the US Gov’t goon squad there was a legal defence fund setup that by buying a T-shirt with the algorithm on it you contributed. I wore it proudly to conferences and through airport security regularly to taunt officers.

I use OpenPGP on all my devices still to this day!
