Europe won’t save you: Why e-mail is probably safer in the US

“It's annoying, actually, but y'know, principles,” Jillian C. York, an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, wrote to me recently when I remarked on the change noted in her e-mail signature.

“Two inboxes in Thunderbird is a pain in the ass. I'm constantly sending e-mails from one when I mean to from the other, which—when you address private mailing lists as much as I do—is a real problem.”

And will she be deleting her Gmail account?

“I probably won't,” she said. “Frankly, Gmail is a far better organizer of data than any existing tool, so I'll continue to use it for mailing lists. I am trying to shift all personal correspondence off, though (she says as she replies from Gmail...).”
