For those interested in seeing how the privacy/encryption debate looks from the hacker/security research side, consider this report: Privacy talk at DEF CON canceled under questionable circumstances:

Earlier this month, several news outlets reported on a powerful tool in the fight between those seeking anonymity online, versus those who push for surveillance and taking it away.

The tool, ProxyHam, is the subject of a recently canceled talk at DEF CON 23 and its creator has been seemingly gagged from speaking about anything related to it. Something's off, as this doesn't seem like a typical cancellation.
