The Blockstream Satellite API is an interesting way to deliver data to users. Due to the one-way transmission (sat -> user antennas), you can cover a huge area and will be received privately. There are no responses transmitted by users (it's like a radio station transmitting music to car radios), so it's impossible to determine who received it. And with error correction it's tolerant to poor signal reception.

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through google.com:
mobile.twitter.com/sneakdotber
twitter.com/tblodt/status/1317

This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.

I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are google.com links.
