At the 2006 Camden Conference, Prof. Michael Tsin took on the unenviable task of highlighting the events from that history that have brought China to its place in the world today – in one talk! 5000 years in 55 minutes – hold on!

  • This edition of the Electronic Cottage begins a series on keeping your
    business in the digital realm your business and not the government’s or some
    other busybody’s. We start by taking a look at the development of
    cryptography, a way to hide or disguise messages so that only the intended
    recipient can understand them. In these days of the surveillance society, a
    little personal cryptography might not be a bad thing.
