Lets talk about Own-Mailbox again (home-hosted email service)

How does it work?

Own-Mailboxes exchange emails directly through the tor network. Both the content and meta-data are therefore protected. Each Own-Mailbox hosts a tor hidden service,
for SMTP, HTTPS (webmail) and IMAPS. The webmail interface can be accessed directly through the tor browser.
In order to be compatible with the outside of the tor network, the Own-Mailbox project maintains a set of proxy servers (for SMTP and TLS). You will therefore be able to receive emails as you would with a normal email address, and access your
webmail form a normal browser while keeping end-to-end encryption, with your Own-Mailbox.

How can I exchange encrypted emails form anywhere?

Your Own-Mailbox stays at your home, encrypts and decrypts emails via GPG for you, and send them through tor when possible.
You can communicate safely with your Own-Mailbox from anywhere

Now, the company is trying to explain that change to customers. On Thursday, in a video interview, Microsoft Principal Group Program Manager Vijay Tewari made the case for shipping Azure Stack on a small variety of hardware. His main point was that constraining the software to a small set of hardware leads to a better product that’s more useful right out of the gate.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IANA successor organization set up amid internet handover controversy

A new organization that will perform key internet domain name system functions has been formed, suggesting that a proposed transition to a global governance model could be completed this year despite opposition from some U.S. lawmakers and advocacy groups.
Following the filing and receipt of the incorporation documents for the new organization by the California secretary of state, Public Technical Identifiers (PTI) has been formed as a nonprofit public benefit corporation and controlled affiliate of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.
ICANN, under contract with the U.S. Department of Commerce, operates the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), which includes responsibility for the coordination of the DNS (Domain Name System) root, IP addressing, and other internet protocol resources.  In March 2014, the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), an agency within the Commerce Department, said it planned to let its contract with ICANN expire in September 2015, passing the oversight
