The Cypherpunks formed as the use of the Internet was starting to explode and there were real and profound questions about how it would evolve and what kinds of security and privacy (or lack thereof) would exist on it. The Cypherpunks worked to make it as secure and private as possible using technology rather than regulation.

Some of the key early figures on the Cypherpunks mailing list will discuss the history of this struggle, why it happened, how that relates to the situation today, and where they think we should go from here.
