"Did you kill me because I am evil?" the man asked.
"You are not evil," said the unicorn."Oh. Good."
"Nobody is evil. Nobody is good." The unicorn shook the blood off its horn. "It is not being, it is doing. You? You chose to do evil."

Happy 10 year anniversary to the Bitcoin white paper.. To compare with the internet.. ARPAnet began with two research nodes (UCLA and SRI, Menlo Park) on Oct. 29, 1969. 10 years later the network was still small and primarily US based. The TCP/IP protocol was standardized by 1982. Public commercial internet access began in 1989, and the first HTTP software became available in 1990. The dawn of mass adoption was at least 20 years from the inception of the first rudimentary network.

major AT&T hub in Dallas struck by lightning, catches fire, major internet outage ensues in Dallas and throughout their network. Divine retribution for their shitty centralized, freedom and privacy destroying company?

@BTCHODL This is the @lopp security presentation from Baltic Honeybadger 2018 day 1 that I was referring to. It goes a lot deeper than VPNs at the beginning. VPN stuff starts around 6:09.

.@samourai_official says an open source backend to run Samourai stack on top of your own full node is coming. Hadn't heard this, sounds fantastic. ~10 mins earlier in the interview they talk about 'cahoots' and other upcoming privacy features. Great interview.
