About that iPhone encryption thing... Was listening to Leo LaPorte et al on This Week in Google 341, after so many other discussions of the Apple dispute with the FBI over access to the content of the one particular iPhone, and Leo made a passing comment about how some people think phones ought to have special legal protections...  and I thought to myself, "you know, maybe they should!" 

So I spent a few minutes trying to explain off the cuff what I mean by that, why we are setting precedents now that will be critical for generations, well into the Singularity.  So listen in, bear with my pontification, and let me know what you think.

It's a discussion we damn well better have now, while we still can.
