So I read that Snowden is getting on the board for PressFreedom, so I finally
got around to taking a look at this.

As you know, I think using the word ‘secure’ in today’s world is something not
to be done lightly. To incorporate it into your product name is simply begging
to be hacked.

I spent about 5 minutes looking at this and it lost me at Python + Ubuntu. This
is not a security stack, this is the basis for something like SnapChat.

I am sorry but Python is not a programming language, it is a hacking tool. A
system built by hackers will be hacked by hackers. Just ask DropBox, they hired
the inventor of Python and they still can’t secure their service after 6 years
of working on it.

People using this will be going up against the NSA - I would be very surprised
if Snowden, knowing what he knows, would want his hard-won security ‘brand’ to
lend credibility to an inherently insecure product that people will trust their
lives to.
