First Russia then Iran blocks Telegram. Telegram isn't a very good app anyway. It has questionable crypto and a closed source server doing who knows what. But government censorship isn't the way to deal with it.

Although I like XMPP, and Conversations is pretty good these days with default end-to-end encryption, I reckon that the future of messaging apps has to be peer to peer. That's the only way to stop bogus bureaucrats trying to prevent people from communicating. A government which fears people chatting is a pretty good indicator of its lack of legitimacy.

just remembered this thing I made a few years ago in which I wrote a program that, for each letter of the alphabet, draws every word containing that letter on top of each other, centering the letter in question static.decontextualize.com/ave

Apparently Instagram is adding a data export feature for GDPR-compliance... So if you're building an Instagram-esque ActivityPub platform, there might be some value in adding an import function :thounking:

Hm, apparently #letsencrypt now provides mor than 50% of the web certificates.

On one hand: FUCKING AWESOME.

On the other: Shit. They're getting very powerful and we are centralizing our trust. I think we could reallu use 2-3 new orgs like Letsencrypt, with similar technology and mission statement, but entirely independent.

Are there any out there yet?

This is huge. Russia’s unelected government is afraid of communications it can’t monitor, so it tries to shut down Telegram. Telegram moves to AWS and Google Cloud. Russia BLOCKS both services.

Almost nothing works in Russia’s internet right now. Banks, shopping, small business. twitter.com/ow/status/98616044 … #nextcloud
