Dark Mail Has An Ambitious Goal

I wish them luck, seriously. One of my hopes for 2014 is that we all become more aware of what's happening to our data, and start to demand some more control and oversight. Or at least that we're more aware of what we're giving away, and what we get in return.

But all of those groups pale compared to the goal for Dark Mail: everyone. "We will be successful if, in three years , 50% of the world's emails are sent through this Dark Mail architecture."

"Security should be the default of architecture. If you choose to use a free service like a map service, you should know what you are giving up. For me, I'm fine if Google knows my wife and I were searching for a new restaurant and how to get to it; I'm not fine with them mining every one of my personal texts, emails and searches. Individual citizens the world over should have the ability to decide what they want to share and what they don't."
