Goal:
A site I to help a new user with the basics of GPG.  Should be windows focused.   Take a  non-techy user from "PGP huh?" to sending secure messages.  This isn't a ultra paranoid cipher geek website.

Nothing too complex but handles the following topics using simple language, screenshots, and diagrams:
  • Installing GPG (prefer gpg4win but willing to consider another package)
  • Creating a keypair
  • Security (making backup of keypair, keep passphrase secret, etc)
  • Importing a public key
  • General (non "crypto nerd") explanation of encrypting, decrypting, signing, verifying
  • Sending a secure message (signed, encrypted, encrypted & signed)
  • Receiving a secure message (decrypting, verifying)
  • Encrypting a file and emailing as an attachment

If interested you should have the following skills:
  • Basic understanding GPG/PGP.  You don't need to be an expert but I don't have time to explain the above basic concepts.
  • Web development skill.  HTML, CSS, maybe some jquery or javascript to visual flair (no programming requirements)
  • Image manipulation.  Nothing fancy. primarily screenshots of various functions and some diagrams to explain concepts.
  • Ability to tech/educate/explain complex topics without getting bogged down into details that aren't important to a new user.

Extras:
Wow me.  Got an idea or concept to make the website more engaging I am interested.  

Terms:
We will retain ownership of all work.  Provide references, prior work, portfolio, etc.
If you lack a portfolio we are going to need to see a mockup or rough design for some portion of the site (not the entire site just one concept) to show competency.  No need for domain or hosting.  Delivery can be a simple as zip file of files.

Pricing:
Send us a quote.  Public or private.

I'm willing to do a text+picture guide. No html/css though; you'll need to get someone else to make a layout.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

How and when are you planning to launch it, if I may ask?

As a new user to PGP/GPG, I would love to see this completed.

Sorry for the delay that is awesome.  I assume you can complete the other topics and make (or contract out) some diagrams/cartoons showing encryption, signing, etc.  Just something to break up the text and screenshots and help people who are visual learners.

PM me with a quote I like what you have so far.

You weren't doing anything wrong.  It looks like they are using a closed source proprietary system.  I tried some tests on it and works fine sending a message from their service to another user on their service but it fails when trying to work with messages created on other clients.  While they call it PGP and it is based on PGP it doesn't appear to properly follow the standard and encode/decode PGP messages so it really isn't PGP.  

I wonder if someone could make a javacript (only client side code) implementation of PGP.  Similar to how bitaddress and blockchain.info can be trusted because it is done client in a browser but for PGP.

Take a  non-techy user from "PGP huh?" to sending secure messages.  This isn't a ultra paranoid cipher geek website.

This is definitely a challenge.  There is a $20K USD prize being offered for essentially building this.

Title: Making Crypto Easy

"US$20,000 will go to the best actionable idea to properly integrate encryption into an existing product/system, educate users as to how to use encryption and/or build a community who use encryption by default."

before today I never paid mind to what GPG was.
after reading a brief bit of information I just downloaded a portable version of Mozilla Thunderbird.  It was very easy to integrate with my gmail account.  I then installed GPG for Thunderbird and the enigmail extension.  The rest was wizard driven or self explanatory.  

That would be my best recommendation for total noobs.  which is what I am.

If the main goal is mail-encryption, have you checked out http://www.enlocked.com/ ? It's very convenient and user-friendly. (Doesn't use PGP/GPG keys, though.)
