A while ago I wrote about Prism Break, a site dedicated to helping you choose private and secure alternatives to many popular proprietary systems and programs. Now Laurent Eschenauer has posted a description of his personal Prism Break.
Some of his choices (such as those involving email) seem less than optimal to me if you're trying to ensure that your online activities remain private but it's very interesting to read about the choices he made and why he made them. I really like posts like this because they illustrate approaches to preserving your privacy.
If you haven't visited the Prism Break site yet, you should take a look. There's lots of good ideas and information there.
Update: Added link to Eschenauer's post.
