comment How would I get my travel photos published?
Not publishing anything else than your very best picture makes totally sense to me, but would that imply that you wouldn't use a flickr account for example just to share or post some pictures of the second class quality range? And by that I mean you were using this account just for fun and not for professional purposes. Or would you consider this as a career killer?

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
Exactly, formatting the partition is trivial, that is why we put our pictures in a raw datablob beyond the partition table and having a tool that can manage this for us and also does the encryption. IronKey is doing the same, but seperates application and data memory into two different physical entities, which makes it stronger, no argue about that. Besides, the Autorun.inf and the Encrypt tool work best together, because they do different things. I thought I pointed that already out in my first comment.

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
I agree if someone wants to do so and goes low level, beyond the partition table then you have lost. But it is rather unlikely that you will find those kinds of viruses on Internet Cafe PCs. The most common ones you can find nowadays are non destructive virus, cause sniffing information and spreading is more worth than destroying an USB Stick. And we simply want to prevent our pictures/Stick becoming a carrier for those malicious buggers. An IronKey is basically the hardware version of what I have described here, but you can have most of its features done in plain software.

+1 because you managed to ask the Question as I tried to in my miserable "Useless Equipment" Question :-)
