John, please forward:
Since I'm not an active member of Cypherpunks, I thought maybe
you could post this message.  It's legit and I think a worthy
There's an attorney in Dallas that needs help:  Your help.
Crypto help.
His name is Albert Rochelle (214-520-0881).  He contacted me
after reading my article on privacy and clipper in the April
issue of _Wired_ magazine.
Albert's client is an international organization of linguists.
They specialize in taking unwritten languages and translating
them to written words.  They are a clean, non-political group and
they want to stay that way.  Trouble is, Albert told me, there
are governments, both U.S. and foreign, that want to tap this
organization's files to access the "raw intelligence" that their
field personnel often send in.
This intelligence is nothing more than the certain problems they
might be having with the in-country governments.  But they don't
want prying eyes to be poking into their files, using whatever
they send in against other groups.
Similarly, they don't want their translation notes, files, used
by intelligence agencies against the people they are working with
for translation.
So, they want to encrypt and they need some expert help, Albert
is in charge of helping them do all this, BUT HE'S A NEOPHTYE and
readily admits this.
He's all for privacy encryption schemes and thinks the govt.
proposed Clipper standard stinks.
He's willing PAY MONEY for your help and he's looking forward to
hearing from anyone out there willing to help him get his
organization, crypto-safe.
Please give him a call, like I said, he's willing to pay for your
services.  Tell him I sent you.
