What do you mean about e-mail being broken? It can be encrypted much
more easily then most other ways of communications. We could just port
GPG on the OpenMoko. Spam is actually quite filterable. I think we
should go with e-mail as the main way of messaging. It's well
standardised and works with computers as well as phones. If we could
make GNU Privacy Guard transparent enough, it would also encourage
encryption usage among the users. Why re-invent the wheel?
