Pavel Durov’s Telegram the Latest Move in the Race Against Surveilance

Pavel Durov, one of the creators of the 'Russian Facebook', VK, made a surprise appearance at TechCrunch Disrupt on Monday to talk about his latest project, the non-profit Telegram. It's a messaging app with a focus on security, and as such incorporates end-to-end encryption and even self-destructing messages. And Durov – no stranger to finding himself out of favour with the Russian authorities – is hoping it will enable people to communicate more securely than they do now. Speaking on stage at the conference at Arena Berlin, he said that the advantage of such encryption is that the keys are created on the devices themselves, thus they don't have anything to show to the authorities.

Failing to Find the Startup G-Spot? Embrace Consolidation

Failing to Find the Startup G-Spot? Embrace Consolidation

It's always a bit sad when a platform you like closes down. That was certainly the case with 7Moments, a privacy-focused photo sharing service which I first wrote about what feels like an awful long time ago. In an email explaining why they were giving up on 7Moments, the three founders told a story that is all too familiar in Berlin nowadays. For despite that fact that “every day new photo albums are being created and people join them” and that user feedback was “always very encouraging, kind and helpful, [and] our infrastructure always secure and stable,” there was one rather important thing missing: Growth.
