(and no, this is not spam, this is a relatively hard cipher, so see if you can decrypt it) Cody Johnson · 3 years, 2 months ago

@Cody Johnson Am I correct that the spaces are also a part of the cipher? Kenny Lau · 3 years, 2 months ago

@Kenny Lau Take the characters of the dvorak keyboard and shift them right by one. It should give: i am. Are you? Cody Johnson · 1 year, 1 month ago

Hey Rahul,

I'm sure some people around here are. I personally never developed a rigorous interest in cryptography, however when I was in highschool my favorite novel for awhile was Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. It's a sprawling piece of historical fiction about codebreaking in WWII, and a fictional 1990's internet conspiracy. The plot is just too wild to neatly summarize and is sprinkled with a lot of technical detail on cryptography. It is a long book and very hard to put down(I remember reading it in like two all-nighters). Cryptonomicon is an extremely popular book in America. If anybody is interested in Crypotgraphy it is worth your time to check it out. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 2 months ago

@Snehal Shekatkar I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :) If anyone else needs more convincing, the New York Times did a nice review of it 15 years ago. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 2 months ago

The interest towards cryptography and cryptology sprung within me when I got introduced to Morse code, and when I tried to figure out the old English runes in one of my favorite books, The Hobbit! Sanghamitra Anand · 3 years, 2 months ago

Also,

Some of us are going to be taking Harvard's intro CS class and talking about it on Brilliant. I saw that cryptography is on the syllabus, so there will likely be people who want to talk about it with you. Peter Taylor Staff · 3 years, 2 months ago
