[liberationtech] Burn Note

Noticed a new website called Burn Note, which allows encrypted messages to 
be sent and read one time before they are allegedly destroyed. Upon reading 
the terms of service there seem to be quite a few clauses related to a 
willingness to hand over user data to third parties, not limited to law 
enforcement.

Here is the technical information that they are willing to disclose.

https://burnnote.com/technical

My concern about this sort of site is that it may lull users into a false 
sense of security. Doesn't appear to be open source (like crypto.cat for 
example) so it's a little difficult to really know what's going on there.

Do others have a take on this particular site?

Thanks.
