Just seen Brainwallet.org Rather clever.

I wonder if that (or a Bitcoin address) could be used for general encryption as well?

Can a memorable phrase also be used to store a PGP key?

All you technically have to do is to use your password as a seed for the random number generator.

The above may or may not make actual RSA security professionals scream, but that's the simplest way to do it.

Argumentum ad lunam: the fallacy that because Bitcoin's price is rising really fast the currency must be a speculative bubble and/or Ponzi scheme.
