Have you heard of the expression 'talk is cheap'?

With all of the controversy generated by the disclosure of NSA's PRISM surveillance program, you'd think there'd be a groundswell of interest in taking action to mount new privacy legislation.

Not so far.  But legislation isn't good enough.  What the public needs is an effective countermeasure to ensure that Privacy is maintained.

RetroShare is a true prototypical software application which immediately offers the following benefits:

fyi, I wrote a RetroShare installation how-to yesterday.  Help me test usability cases and establish feedback with the RetroShare developers.

If there are any issues which make its use difficult, they need to know.

For RetroShare to become mainstream, it needs to become 'drop-dead' easy to use.

It's not quite there yet, but it has come a long way.

Help with the testing.  Let me know if you'd like to participate.  Get involved.
