Support DIME

I am an avid defender of human rights – privacy for everyone (which is part of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights – Article 12) and I just discovered this upcoming service: DIME (Dark Internet Mail Environment).

I wanted to ‘see’ who was behind and found these articles:

Secrets, lies and Snowden’s email: why I was forced to shut down Lavabit by Ladar Levison. It is a shocking read! Instead of relenting (and becoming complicit) to NSA / FBI and the whole US legal machine descending on him to get his ‘encryption keys’.. he shut down the service and blew away his company + 10 years of hard work.

Lavabit loses contempt of court appeal over Edward Snowden encryption keys

Wow talk about convictions – this guy is the real-deal – because in the process – he lost everything. I cannot imagine the stress of going through such an ordeal.

But he stood his ground – and is.. rebuilding it with Silent Circle – a purveyor of secured apps.

I profoundly admire that.
