Peter Eckersley writes: EFF and Tor have announced a public beta of HTTPS Everywhere, a Firefox plugin that automatically encrypts your Google searches as well as requests to several other sites, including Wikipedia, Twitter, Identica, Facebook, some major newspapers, and a number of smaller search engines. This plugin makes it much easier to use encryption with sites that support it, but not by default.
For us, this is part of an ongoing campaign to turn the unencrypted web of the past into the encrypted web of tomorrow.
Today's scientific question is: What in the world is electricity?
And where does it go after it leaves the toaster?
