[liberationtech] Guardian Project announces new "SmellySuperCrypto" app, featuring, "BurnBabyBurn" and "UnicornRainbows", too!

Hi Nathan,
That sounds amazing. You're someone I really like on a personal level so
I'm therefore going to absolutely defend SmellySuperCrypto. It must be
great.

However, I did notice a technical inaccuracy with your description.
You mention that your encryption follows the "ninja with a ginsu"
implementation — I was under the impression that this was deprecated in
favor of Ninja in Katana mode.

Other than that I think you've really hit the ground running with a great
invention here that will revolutionize the cyberworld.

Let's keep this discussion going. There are many important, critical
discussions to have around SmellySuperCrypto:

- Will it automatically delete my messages after a while? This is very
important.
- As the sole caretakers of the servers and code, you guys need to be
trustworthy. Can you take me out to lunch so I can see whether I can trust
you?
- How many bits of encryption are you using? Is it military-grade?

Thanks, and great work,


NK
