So, That's something I'm going to start talking more about...

"When the quantum break comes, and they are able to unencrypt everything they have harvested in the past, what are you planning to do?"

Chances are nation-states are already there if IBM give quantum time away for free.

Hashtag searches are a good way to find folks. With the default Mastodon client you can pin columns for searches you use a lot.

I’m sure I’m forgetting good ones but in the #privacy and #cryptography vein some good ones to follow are:

@micahflee @uranther @rysiek @jjg @cryptpad @Privacy @tinker @Purism @lattera @privacylab @torproject @x0rz @mala

The Inquiry: How Do You Make People Have Babies? bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cswqtc

we need more of "our people".. nationalist, elitist shit! It makes me sad to see how successful those manipulation campaigns are.

Thinking on a global scale this is a non-issue.

i guess I've never actually said this to all y'all before, but opinion time: if you're on mastodon.social I 100% think you should leave it

i understand leaving a backup account there because it's one of the least likely to go down english-speaking instances on the fediverse, but mastsoc is harmful to federation

ideally, host your own instance, or get together some of your friends (and hopefully at least one sysadmin) and host one together for the lot of you, where all of you chip in. My instance costs $5 a month

as a backup, join the instance of someone you personally trust, imo if you can't form a personal relationship with the admin within reason, the instance is too big

also, pleroma is good damn software and it's getting better by the day, if you just want a closed instance for you and your friends, i highly recommend it, although open instances can be problematic because of it having weaker moderation tools than mastodon

Programming isn't about what you know; it's about what you can figure out.

Every great developer you know got there by solving problems they were unqualified to solve until they actually did it.

Do people have suggestions for accounts to follow?

Am particularly interested in:
- p2p tech design challenges
- privacy & cryptography

Yes I know I am rather one-dimensional right now.

One of the most frequent questions we get is: Why doesn't Tusky support push notifications?

Because pushing to devices would require us to use proprietary Google libraries and to run a relay server. But we want Tusky to be pure FOSS (free and open-source software) and don't want to send any data to Google so we decided not to implement push notifications at this time. We are researching other possibilities to make notifications faster though.
