[liberationtech] Secure Email Survey

Hello LibTech,

The Open Technology Fund is surveying projects working on next
generation secure email or email-like communication. The purpose of this
survey is to identify potential areas of collaboration, better
understand the trade-offs made by the different projects, and to help
the internet freedom community better understand these projects. This
survey's findings will be published publicly to serve the above purpose.

So far, we have invited these projects to participate:

ansamb.com
bitmail.sf.net
bitmessage.org
darkmail.info
flowingmail.com
leap.se
mailiverse.com
mailpile.is
mailvelope.com
mega.co.nz
opencom.io
parley.co
perzo.com
pond.imperialviolet.org
retroshare.sf.net
scramble.io
startmail.com

All these projects are working on email or email-like communication that
departs from traditional encrypted OpenPGP or S/MIME email in one way or
another. Although this survey only applies to asynchronous messages
(i.e. not synchronous chat), there is a great deal of diversity among
the approaches. Some projects are open source, some are not. Some
projects provide services, some provide only software. There are
centralized, federated, and peer-to-peer approaches. There are HTML5
apps, desktop apps, mobile apps, and extensions. You get the idea.

Please let us know if we are missing any projects.

Below is a link to the web-based submission form:
https://docs.google.com/a/opentechfund.org/forms/d/1TpSrjuLXxG_POGv94C6qurjz4KKw2-ID69bzWWzpEB4/viewform

Alternatively, you can complete the survey in the attached text file and
email the message to email.survey at opentechfund.org. The public key for
that address is also attached.

Please submit responses on or before December 1, 2013.

Thanks in advance!
