Lavabit's Ladar Levison: 'If You Knew What I Know About Email, You Might
Not Use It'

"Ladar Levison, 32, has spent ten years building encrypted email service
Lavabit, attracting over 410,000 users. When NSA whistleblower Edward
Snowden was revealed to be one of those users in July, Dallas-based Lavabit
got a surge of new customers: $12,000 worth of paid subscribers, triple his
usual monthly sign-up. On Thursday, though, Levison pulled the plug on his
company, posting a cryptic message about a government investigation that
would force him to “become complicit in crimes against the American people”
were he to stay in business. Many people have speculated that the
investigation concerned the government trying to get access to the email of
Edward Snowden, who has been charged with
espionage<http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-06-21/world/40116763_1_hong-kong-nsa-justice-department>.
There are legal restrictions which prevent Levison from being more specific
about a protest of government methods that has forced him to shutter his
company, an unprecedented move."
