Wow.

"We call on the European Commission to promote the dissemination of Free Software filter technologies"

@fsfe , SRSLY???

Why not free/libre/open-source DRM, free/libre/open-source tracking, profiling and predictive algorithm, free/libre/open-source drone strikes, while we're at it? What a disgrace :(

I like a lot of things about @protonmail, but I wish they wouldn't keep lying about this (prev toot).

Even within their own marketing text, it's clear it's not "zero access", they have the cleartext and then they encrypt it. So they had access which they then gave up. That's more than zero.

Regarding the rest, there was an academic review of their security model and promises, and it was not exactly flattering: eprint.iacr.org/2018/1121

The reality: Protonmail promise not to look at your e-mail.

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

@nutomic It should still be instant because you can run the command any time anything changes such as the domains your cert covers and it will rebuild straight away.

Also, if you're cert is for the same domain name, then it shouldn't make any difference if you're on another server, you can just take the *.pem files over to the new server.

In Osona Sud, Catalonia the distribution of Guifinet nodes is superdense. It's like the William Gibson saying that the future is here but not evenly distributed. Some areas of the world are already living in the future of decentralized user-owned network infrastructure.

If anyone says that mesh networks are impractical or don't scale to a municipal level then Catalonia is a good showcase of it working. Obviously not all of these thousands of nodes are highly tech-savvy anarcho-hackers, so this is something which can work "for the people".

@angristan You could find out what rows the corrupted block was and get those rows from the last working dump, since they're non-critical they probably haven't changed.
