The Pirate Party

Και το σουηδικό μοντέλο (πρότυπο) όπου δεν καταλαβαίνω τι λέει: Piratpartiet

Καιρός δεν ήταν;

[Να ψάξω να βρω το "Εμπρός της γης οι κολασμένοι" να του κάνουμε μια λίγο πιο σύγχρονη διασκευή.]

Επι τη ευκαιρία, ξέρετε ότι οι νέες συσκευές (οθόνες, TV, video) υψηλής ευκρίνειας δε θα λειτουργούν αν μια απ' αυτές δεν υποστηρίζει τη μεταξύ τους κρυπτογράφηση του σήματος;

It's not only new high tech. equipment that needs compatible cryptographic systems for establishing communication. The same holds true for people as well, don't you agree?

That's a nice analogy! But... Cryptographic systems are either compatible or incompatible, while for people, between perfect compatibility and total incompatibility, there is a full spectrum of cases. And we mostly fall somewhere in that spectrum.
But... People in love seem to have just found that perfectly compatible peer while the same two may later discover that they cannot communicate any more. So I think that in most cases we have an ability to adapt to each other's cryptography and converge to communication.
But... there is rarely enough motivation or will. It's usually easier simply to refuse or just to neglect to do so. And then we can blame incompatibility!
...or anonymity :-)
