#37 Andrei Simionescu, Lavaboom

Andrei Simionescu of the now closed Lavaboom talks to me about the encrypted email service they wanted to make.

Who he is; a little about Lavaboom; PGP is unfriendly, why did they make it, connection to Lavabit; "but I've got nothing to hide", do I make myself a target by using it; other PGP email initiatives; lawful legal requests; open source for core features, verifying the builds are from the source; how Lavaboom works; is there any clear text ever; losing a password; what kind of encryption is in use; open source problems; hosting; scaling; making money; raising money.
