In a move that could never happen in any other space, we’re supplying a grant to what looks at first glance like a hash function. Please welcome ZmnSCPxj to the small but growing family of Square Crypto grant recipients.

Decentralized identity.
Hard to realize, but huge when it's here!

RT @csuwildcat@twitter.com

Many have responded to @Jack@twitter.com by citing Mastodon/ActivityPub, which are federated systems w/ gatekeepers and are limited to a few narrow uses. The decentralized identity community is working on more robust, decentralized options, like Encrypted Data Vaults & personal hub protocols twitter.com/jack/status/120476

For a maxed out Mac Pro you can easily get a mid priced Cybertruck. Both come with four wheels.

When you're getting forced to something it's different.

Time for plan B in Greece too. The war on cash and the desire for surveillance and control just escalated. WTF!

Noise canceling headphones are game changing for productivity!
Pretty happy with Sony's WH-1000XM3.

The development and widespread use of countervailing technologies, such as the many varieties of crypto, is a far more promising route of restraint.

This is every day getting more scary... Imagine being born as a minority im China...

RT @cskama@twitter.com

China is:
- developing facial recognition technology to sort people by ethnicity
- collecting DNA samples from minorities without their consent
- trying to determine your ethnicity/race based on DNA samples

Some key points:

1. In relation to web assembly: "Native applications distributed in browser" -> "let browsers compete with app stores and installers"
2. Waiting for the rise of a "npm-virus"...
3. Looking forward myself for @FlutterDev@twitter.com to close the gap to the web.

Pretty amazing stuff that's actually happening in the browser.

Chile just went full cyberpunk.

Yes.

We don't need to run a full node on everything and for every app. We need an easy, and interoperable way to "pair" wallets with a node.

As a matter of fact, not even everyone should be bothered, ex one well maintained and reliable node for a family is more than enough.

Hmm... Probably worth trying.
