The #SessionMessenger fork of #Signal uses the #LokiNet mixing network.
While a mixing network built on a blockchain that uses a capitalist game-theoretic Sybil protection scheme and its own coin for premium features should be a red flag by itself, this project seems to be deeply involved with the #AltRight and chan culture:
According to the successor of 8chan has been announced and is run on LokiNet as well.
So stay the fuck away from it.

"The intelligence coup of the century"

For decades, the #CIA read the encrypted communications of allies and adversaries exploiting backdoors in silicon chips.

Free and open-source silicon will allow everybody to audit the full chip design, from netlists down to layout.

Keep up #Freedom with Free silicon!

One of the most depressing things about living in a capitalist society is realizing how much human effort is devoted to useless, and often harmful things like ads. Some of the brightest people in the world are wasting their talent on this garbage while our planet is dying.

You're looking at a website describing some new tech which solves some problem

They're really excited about this project. A little bit too excited.

An uneasy feeling start to gnaw in the back of your head as you read on.

You scroll down. There it is.

Am Samstag schon was vor?
Am 15.02. haben sich wieder mehrere 1000 Nazis angekündigt, um durch Dresden marschieren zu wollen. Ihr angeblicher "Trauermarsch" gilt den Bombenangriffen 1945 auf die Festungsstadt mit Logistikdrehkreuz und Rüstungsproduktion.
Geschichtsrevisionistische Schuldumkehr & falsche Zahlen dürfen wir nicht laufen lassen!

Naziaufmärsche blockieren!
Für auswärtige gibt es eine Bettenbörse.

Someone is trying to build a learning app like , but it's free software. Maybe you want to help out?:

Built the classic random noise generator from junkbox parts, I think this circuit has been mentioned by a hundred posts at Usenet sci.crypto, but still fun to play with. I still needs some signal conditioning (noise conditioning?) before I can feed it into my /dev/random...

The noise source consists only two transistors, everything else is a quick-and-dirty power supply built from random parts.... Not able to get any proper DC-DC chip in the middle of 2019-nCoV holiday break.

@neauoire I assume you're already familiar with tom7's presentation he gave on a hacked NES?

he did a similar thing where the slides were on the console.

Denkt daran: Wenn Faschisten erst einmal an der Macht sind, werden sie es unter Strafe stellen, sie Faschisten zu nennen. Daher: Lasst uns Klartext reden, so lange wir es noch können.

@thegibson @jeffalyanak @djsundog Surveillance capitalists' greatest asset is apathy. The vast majority will sacrifice every last scrap of privacy for even the slightest convenience, as long as it's not visible to them. It's almost like most are unable to recognize privacy violations if there is not literally a pair of eyes looking at them. Which makes sense because it was the main way privacy was violated for the first 99.9% of human existence.

Today marks the end of Tor version 0.4.0.x

Currently over 10% of the Tor network is running on end-of-life tor releases.

This is bad.

This is the list of affected relays:

"The growing inaccessibility of science"


"Access options"


Greta Thunberg speech at Davos is the real life version of The Emperor's New Clothes. She is saying obvious things that are demonstrably true, yet many adults choose to look the other way because the truth is simply too uncomfortable to contemplate.

Maybe its time to boycott Conservancy and #fosdem until such time as they're no longer promoting GAFAM. I understand that the history is complicated, but in 2020 we now have a very clear picture of how toxic those companies are in a multitude of ways.

The oldies like me need to remember why they originally resisted Microsoft, and not end up rationalizing away similar or worse abuses coming from Google and Facebook. In a lot of ways the problems created by those companies are much more existential than a sweating Ballmer hurling lawsuits and office furniture.
