This account will be DMN's principal brand presence on Mastodon. For the next couple months you can mostly expect news and discussion of the 402-Receipts standard: 402receipts.info

Everything's still quite up in the air. A lot of usage details will vary from one implementation to another, and there are some implementation details that need to be standardized right away. Let us know if you'd like to get involved!

@intrepidduckling@mastodon.club many of these are +adorable. the artist doesn't seem to have a proper website though.

also their attempt to chain the entire comic together in one twitter thread are a total failure.

it's only antifascist action if it comes from the antifascist action region of germany, otherwise it's just a sparkling action against fascists

I think I might stop answering questions about what camera I'm using. A kind of aged-grain from using shit old lenses aside, the only pics it makes a difference with is the birds, the rest it's inconsequential. The constant focus on equipment instead of understanding I have a good grasp of light and composition is frustrating. Some of my best photos this year were taken with a 3yo mobile phone. It's not the camera.

You should not be able to get a blood moon on Eventide Island. This just feels unfair.

We're trying to introduce new ways for people to support each other online.
Can people help us validate our sense of how people _want_ to pay for access to websites?

This survey just asks about your experiences with advertisements, pay-walls, ad-blockers, and crowd-funding services. It seems to take people about three minutes.

If the series ever complete's it'll be over fifteen years in the making. The existing four books were excellent.

It's kinda neat to realize that the difference between a partially-blind and fully-blind signature scheme is (in this context) just a performance concern. We certainly want to figure out a (elliptical or bilinear or lattice) partially-blind solution, but that won't be included in version-0 of the 402-Receipts standard, and that's fine.

For the first version of the standard, we're going to keep this as simple as we possibly can, given that no out-of-the-box solutions seem to exist: a fully-blind RSA signature:

With the debate over #Microsoft #Windows vs #GNU #Linux raging on, I look at why Windows is unquestionably the top choice in the foreseeable in terms of ease, #accessibility, and #ethics. Noble as #FOSS advocacy is, can it really compete, especially among #women, going forward?
