    People who have been following along with the NSA leaks and the fallout probably already know the story of Lavabit. After being compelled by the government to give up their TLS keys, Lavabit closed down after 10 years of service (additional background information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavabit)

    Here are some recent interesting media appearances.

    There's a lot of interesting insight in there about the importance of e-mail, its importance, and alludes to some of the fundamental problems with a protocol that was designed without security really in mind.
