Scott McLemme, reviewing Steven Levy, Crypto, writes on p. 30 of the New York
Times Book Review, Sunday, Jan. 14, 2001: "[C]ryptographers here [qua
hobbyists] simply enjoy the challenge of getting inside a system and
reconfiguring it. Others are driven by a counterculturalist distrust of the
government. Blossoming at the farthest fringes, there is the lush wierdness
of a group called the Extropians--for whom high-power encryption (combined
with information technology) will yield revolutionary social changes, with
the total collapse of the nation-state for openers."
