w00t for the EU!

Sending a big "fuck you" to Echelon, the mostly U.S.-based big-brother spy-network:


E.U. seeks quantum cryptography response to Echelon


The only thing I'm scratching my head about, is how they are going to get much use of this over such a large land-area as Europe? Last I heard, the record for the longest working quantum-key channel was only about 70 kilometers. That better be increasing fast, otherwise they're going to need a lot of heavily fortified relay points.

Well, there's probably a very limited number of positions available in the US where you'd have the knowledge required to make an accurate judgement of whether Echelon is a good or bad thing. In honor of Las Vegas, though, I'd give bad a line of -110.
