Lavabit Founder Shares How He Communicates After Quitting Email
Lavabit founder Ladar Levison spoke at the Privacy Identity Innovation conference in Seattle Tuesday and revealed that ever since he quit email in August (when he was bullied into closing his encrypted email service), he has been using LinkedIn, Facebook, text and Silent Circle to communicate with people digitally. But as AllThings D report, Levison said, “Anything that I consider sensitive, I try to talk about it to people in person, with my cellphone off, in an area where I know that nobody’s pointing a parabolic mic at me. If you’re fighting the government that’s what you need to do.”
Levison also revealed that if he were to use email again, he would get an off-shore service.
