Between LastPass pooping the bed (again!?) and Congress telling your ISP to spy all they want on you, my recommendations from back in November are now looking mighty thin without including a VPN service, to try to stick one more finger into the dike.

I will plan to do a roundup of decent and non-evil (as far as we can know) VPN services by this weekend.  But you should also start looking for your own.

One thing you can do right away that’s easy and free, is start using OpenDNS for your address lookups.  ISP spying on users always begins with DNS, so the first thing I always do is get the heck off the ISP’s DNS and on to OpenDNS or Google’s.

More on this topic later, I promise.
