good indeed!
 ... now if only it wasn't so depressing and intimidating ;)
i have some other ideas for a way out of the mess.[0]

i pick a new one for every purpose, the stronger the better.
(some services don't let you pick a strong password) [1]

i have no idea about Facestab or Skrap, but i and a few others use
GMail to express contempt for email as a whole and better data mine
(search) public list archives.

nothing conveys my contempt for email like a gmail account!

0.  "security by self evident existence"
Red-Team Networks Everywhere!!!
This effort attempts to remedy the pervasive and comprehensive
vulnerability of consumer, industry, and government hardware and
software systems.  In order to achieve best effective posture with
maximum haste apply four principles globally:

1) Blanket Legal Invulnerability
Remove all criminal and civil liability for "hacking", computer
trespass, and all related activities performed over data networks;
establish proactive "shield" legislation to protect and encourage
unrestricted security research of any subject on any network. extend
to international agreements for blanket protection in all

2) Educational Support Everywhere
Establish lock picking, computing, and hacking curriculum in pre
school through grade school with subsidized access to technical
resources including mobile, tablet, laptop test equipment, grid/cloud
computing on-demand, software defined radios with full
receive/transmit, and gigabit internet service or faster.

3) Collaborative Competitions
Organize a program of blue and red teaming challenges for educational
and public participation at the district, regional, and national level
cultivating expertise and rewarding it with hacking toys, access, and

4) Privileged Positioning
Direct and unrestricted backbone access to various individuals or
groups who demonstrate competence in either the educational or
competitive realms, in order for them to mount additional attack
strategies against any reach-able target. this access must consist of
both passive taps of backbone traffic as well as injection taps for
raw packet transmission at core rates. this should be available on the
Internet backbone at internet exchanges, private fiber through public
right of way, and core networks of operators of licensed wireless

end result / strong attractor:
Open software and hardware widely in use in
post-privacy-protection-purge future will invert power structure to
defender with near unassailable advantage in "cyber domain".  Any
attacker required to compete against the global, collaborative,
massive, iterative-crowd-hardened systems publicly in use.

1. some free passwords!  these are all sekure, don't worry :)
