There is an interview somewhere (I was looking for it to provide
citation, but I was unable to find it. I think it used to be in his blog).
He said something like "use AES, that is the standard, and no one is
fired for using AES", but that doesn't mean AES is better, it just mean
it is safer (for you) to be able to say "I used the standard, it was not
my fault...". But he also said something suggesting that for personal
stuff, maybe you should consider using other things (but again, he
didn't said explicitly "for personal stuff I recommend Twofish").
But that was before vulnerabilities were discovered in AES-256 and
AES-192. I have no idea what he would recommend now.
If you find the interview, please post the link, I was unable to find it.
