if anyone still needs to unload #oil futures, I can store say, 10 barrels onsite in my own container

Just drop off a pallet of 10 kw of solar panels at the same time and we'll call it even

PayPal & p2p money 

Aaaand PayPal has blocked our business account again. Every few years they come up with some new BS, basically freezing our money in place.

It still boggles my mind that some people prefer this corporate banking shit show over open-source money and p2p payments. Then again, I assume most of the haters are trying to fight off the cognitive dissonance stemming from most of the left being on the wrong side of history in this regard (the side of banks and authoritarian govs).

#Decentralized Protocol Removed From EU Contact Tracing Website Without Notice - CoinDesk

EU researchers are concerned and confused after their proposal for a decentralized contact tracing system was rejected without explanation.

@angristan Seems pretty biased, e.g.

"The camera kill switch is no better than some tape." - tape is 100% effective.

"Distros like PureOS are not secure at all. They're mostly a reskinned Debian." - Debian is extremely secure.

My Dad just asked my why Libre Office changed the save icon to a down arrow, I showed him this pic to explain 😂

In New Zealand there’s a protocol of putting teddy bears in the windows to make life more interesting for the kids (we’re allowed to go for walks in our local neighbourhood). We put our teddies in place today, they’re about 45 years old 😄

Jitsi working on End-to-End Encryption - jitsi.org/news/e2ee/

😍 This is awesome! Also I think they are one of the only ones that will be able to pull off true e2ee. Because most others intercept audio / video and process on it. Where as jitsi operates as an SFU and selectively forwards streams based on the network conditions of individual clients.

If they needed to actually process the audio / video this would require the bridge to be trusted to decrypt the payloads. Super cool!

After testing #Jitsi, #LWN had a look at #BigBlueButton.

Summary "more solid and feature-complete" "In particular, the administration features and shared whiteboard capability stand out." "no real need to be using proprietary solutions in this area."

Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to Barack Obama, said “never let a good crisis go to waste” during the 2008 financial crisis. He uttered the same words on ABC News this week, admonishing politicians to not let this crisis go to waste either… and use it as a springboard to pass sweeping policy changes while people are too terrified to care.
