Started with comments about Bruce Schneier's article at Wired http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/10/149481/ where he mentions some concerns about TrueCrypt:
No, I don’t have any inside knowledge about TrueCrypt, and there’s a lot about it that makes me suspicious. But for Windows full-disk encryption it’s that, Microsoft’s BitLocker, or Symantec’s PGPDisk — and I am more worried about large U.S. corporations being pressured by the NSA than I am about TrueCrypt.
Eventually Matthew Green made the following tweet:
.@kennwhite and I are working on a 'Kickstarter' for a proper review of Truecrypt. The terms are a work in progress. http://www.fundfill.com/fund/4-spzFJdDQk211KJDAUfcOw==# …

I am still very much a noob when it comes to Crypto, but Matthew Green is one of the people I follow to learn.
If your not into Crypto you probably haven't heard of him, this Ars article would be one place to start http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/09/crypto-prof-asked-to-remove-nsa-related-blog-post/
I am sorry to say I don't know much about Kenn White currently, I'd welcome comments or links that correct my ignorance.
