@angristan on one hand I'm surprised governments don't do more of this; on the other hand it's chump change compared to the VC money that flies around in the US.

@kai Norway is also funding another privacy focused host, Runbox. @angristan


I just hope the EU won't thwart the purpose of the funding like they did in the case of Paysafecard by a money laundering directive.

@angristan Meanwhile Google is flagging messages from protonmail as suspicious in gmail...

@deutrino @angristan Switching away from Gmail has been a real eye opener. Major league malevolent vendor lock in there :/
