Leo Laporte

Welcome to Leoville!

My name is Leo Laporte. I am a US-based journalist specializing in technology coverage on radio, TV, and the Internet. This site is home to my blog and contains information about everything I publish, but I also have several other web sites you might be interested in.

I use OpenPGP encryption and signing on all my email. If it's not signed by me, it's not from me. And if you'd like to protect your email to me from prying eyes, install GNU Privacy Guard (gpg4win or GPGTools for the Mac) and import my public key. Search for it using the short ID B22D2CD5 or download and import my public key from this server. I create new keys regularly so be sure to use this key and not older versions.
