I prepared myself to be ready to help out any of my friends and family who wanted to install tools from the Privacy Pack, but as far as I know, none of them did. And that group includes a lot of political activists, many of whom have expressed support for Manning, Snowden, and other whistleblowers, and opposition to mass surveillance.
I'm glad that more major websites are implementing TLS/SSL, and that a few of the big players announced support for encryption and privacy. But it seemed like the plan here was to get a critical mass of regular users using encryption tools, enough for network effects to start carrying the project forward, so that we get to the point where enough regular communication is encrypted that encrypting your communication doesn't flag you as suspicious. And I don't get the impression that we got any further with that.
