Not sure if @ntnsndr already shared this but:

We’re Converting Our Startup To A Cooperative. Here’s Why.

Excellent article for any Linux user to vastly improve data hygiene by closing a simple but huge DNS metadata leak.

DLT one (Damn Linux Tablet) - keeping an eye on this modular Linux tablet project on Hackaday

hackaday.io/project/164845-dlt

Two system-on-module (SoM) are being evaluated, ideally both will be supported. One has a similar SoC to the Purism Librem 5, the other is a Jetson Nano.

How cool would it be to have a modular tablet chassis, similar to the 24 year-old ATX standard for PCs?

Great turnout for Bitcoin & Beer (Denver). Shared my favorite onboarding books for people of all backgrounds.
- The Little Bitcoin Book
- Inventing Bitcoin
- Programming Bitcoin

Trying to demo v0.96 for the next meetup, but I keep getting an “Invalid transaction” error unless the sending phone has Internet access, defeating the entire purpose.

Any suggestions to make this work offline?

Same issue confirmed by a Play Store review from Dec 2018

I'm so sorry to say it, but today @linuxjournal closed down for good. As you can imagine we are all so sad that this is the end. You can read my final goodbye here:

Today Linux Journal shut its doors for good. All staff were laid off and the company is left with no operating funds to continue in any capacity... linuxjournal.com/content/linux

scratchy lets you quickly bootstrap a Linux distro in a (non-Docker) container and interactively execute something in it:

github.com/muesli/scratchy

Currently supports bootstrapping Arch, but it's super easy to add more scripts for other distros! Contributions always welcome!

Slide deck is available here:

Based on feedback, I added content about alternative technologies and locating Exit Nodes.

A huge thanks to everyone who attended. We all made this event a success together, and I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Picked up an Epic Brewing - Escape to Colorado, to celebrate National IPA Day

Dash Core CEO, Ryan Taylor, mystified by the following types of lights:
- candle
- neon sign
- bottom-lit glass disk
- Jacob’s ladder
- price ticker

Keeping with the cypherpunk ethos, it would be great if I could refer people to a hosting provider that accepts Bitcoin.

Seeking recommendations if you've got any, thanks!

Interesting historical detail:

There is only one BIP that has ever reached the status "Rejected". It's BIP 109 by Gavin Andresen.

See the table on the readme of github.com/bitcoin/bips

Plenty have been withdrawn though.

Bitcoin may do to banks what the internet did to libraries.

Bitcoin may do to central banks what the printing press & age of enlightenment did to the Church's monopoly on knowledge.

Except that systems of money have stronger network effects than systems of knowledge, so perhaps the events that unfold will be even more acute and accelerated, compared to whats happening with the internet.
