Janet Napolitano Doesn't Use Email

Joseph Straw, writing for The NY Daily News:

“‘I don’t have any of my own accounts,’ she told a cybersecurity conference hosted by National Journal. ‘I’m very secure.’ Asked if her reasons for sticking to other forms of communication had to do with concerns about email security, she hedged and said she avoids email for ‘a whole host of reasons.’”

The Secretary is privy to intelligence sources such as the NSA’s Echelon program, and knowledgable about the massive data center that agency is building in the Utah desert.

Do you think Nepolitano’s insider knowledge of privacy-invading government technology programs informed her choice to avoid email, much? What does that say for the rest of us?
