At tonight's (Tuesdays) OHN we were talking for a bit about some obscure 
crypto things, and I promised to post this article about why you don't 
always want to compress before you encrypt:

http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/43413/is-it-safe-for-gpg-to-compress-all-messages-prior-to-encryption-by-default

To be fair, I think for most people you definitely want to compress first.

     Ciao!
