encryption - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
We used a kind of special compression encryption that allowed a lot of data to be transmitted in a very small package. It was the TARDIS of the technology world. It also meant that you could get 5G speeds on the most basic of networks. Instead of revolutionising infrastructure we got more creative with compression algorithms.
We did our encryption in plain sight, anyone could read the text, but only a genius could ever understand the key and apply it. Fish don't notice the water they swim in and people fail to see the codes in their everyday language. Nobody tries to break in to an open safe, so why lock anything away? The most secret book in the world is very long and free to read... far safer than making it a secret, yes?
Paranoid styles of encryption are too restrictive to have much of a future, it's when the creative genius starts to play with it at the practical and conceptual level that everything changes.
