This week on error451, the occasionally-weekly tech podcast from an anarchist perspective brought to you by The Final Straw Radio, Bursts and William Budington chat about devices crossing the U.S. border. Now, neither of us are lawyers and situations change according to laws, precedence and actual practice with border security, so consider these better practice suggestions. We talk about full disk encryption, cloud solutions, planning a trip, if some devices are more secure than others and safer-practices if you've lost control of your device.

William B suggests the Security Self-Defense series from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (which employs William) as a great, free resource for getting prepared for travel and other situations and keeping up on current developments in tech.

series of podcasts as it demonstrates that technology only adds further complications to one's life. Reminds me of the person who claims to oh so busy so often. Why? Because said person actively introduces 'the oh so busy so often' into their daily life because otherwise said person would have 'free' time in which to think, for example. This podcast series, likewise, discusses very similar distractions: 'clever' ways around stuff that one doesn't need in one's life. Podcast should be re-titled 'More ways to distract oneself.'
