@alcinnz The copyright cabal going after Internet Archive. Despicable. Absolutely shameful. Libraries should be temples, whether online or off. They should be the centrepiece and pride of our species. Their doors should swing wide open for all comers, both writers and readers. Any society which undercuts the Library has lost the aegis of Heaven.
So happy to see this project do a #kickstarter #crowdfunding campaign for #urbanfarming in #Stockholm! Can be interesting for people who are into #regenerativefarming but also folks who are in the #solarpunk sphere. The founders want to start what they call a #microfarm or, in Swedish, #mikrojordbruk increasing urban food #resilience and #biodiversity https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/762885230/stadsnara-mikrojordbruk
This is AWESOME!!
Here's how to join @wiktor's decentralized keybase replacement effort, using myself as an example.
Thank you so much, Wiktor! That’s all I ever wanted Keybase to do for me. And now there’s a way to do this, but decentralized. This is awesome.
"Tinfoil Chat (TFC) is a FOSS+FHD peer-to-peer messaging system that relies on high assurance hardware architecture to protect users from passive collection, MITM attacks and most importantly, remote key exfiltration.
#TFC is designed for people with one of the most complex threat models: organized crime groups and nation state hackers who bypass end-to-end encryption of traditional secure messaging apps by hacking the endpoint."
Wow huge update to Matrix/Riot including end-to-end encryption by default. If you're looking for a team collaboration/chat tool, do take a look. There's a nice Jitsi integration for video calls too.
Congrats to everyone involved 👏

Be worried. Be very worried.
Really want something like https://www.hcaptcha.com/ but self-hostable (so it can feed data to data stores of choice like Mozilla’s DeepMind, OpenStreetMap) so we can stop giving Google so much shit for free. (https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/d28e60e4-6191-4ba0-8693-98777aef6c9d)
I missed the info that the Pinephone is now sold for pre-order with UBPorts (the continuation of Ubuntu Touch) here, and should support most core functions out of the box: https://store.pine64.org/?product=pinephone-community-edition-ubports-limited-edition-linux-smartphone

"We find that Zoom has “rolled their own” encryption scheme, which has significant weaknesses. In addition, we identify potential areas of concern in Zoom’s infrastructure, including observing the transmission of meeting encryption keys through China."

To Jitsi admins:
– Be aware of Google STUN servers in your configuration (see also https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/pull/5433).
– Change the default text of the landing page since it may incorrectly state that Jitsi is fully encrypted.
– Try to deploy HTTP security headers, like a strict Content Security Policy.
– Keep your server software up-to-date (see also https://infosec-handbook.eu/as-wss/).
– Be nice to each other.
#zoom is the tech industry’s newest problem child
Zoom meetings aren’t actually end-to-end encrypted, despite misleading marketing on their website, in their security white paper, and in the user interface in their app https://theintercept.com/2020/03/31/zoom-meeting-encryption/ by @yaelwrites and myself
