new Richard Myers talk on his Lot49 mesh networks protocol proposal published on the Chaincode Labs youtube channel today
@jon I'm seeing a bit too much of these kind of things.
I checked both that thread and the linked Twitter thread: issues have not been addressed (afaics)
https://bitcoinhackers.org/@kekcoin/102464201957386329 still no answer
Not answering or addressing questions is a recurring theme. Only thing I do see is meaningless marketing slogans/posts.
That's aside from the weird choice IMO wrt Librem 5 to go for GNOME instead of KDE. Latter has (afaik) complete mobile stack, former had (basically) none. 🤷♂️
if you hack on bitcoin core wallets definitely check out this live stream of Andrew Chow working. live rn.
I've been a supporter and customer of Purism for some time now. Unfortunately, my requests for warranty service for the battery of a $2300 Librem 15 that died after only 10 months have been met with a series of attempts to not cover the replacement.
This is a not a good sign -- and only the first issue reported to Purism of several I had, including a stripped case screw and an unseated drive that I paid a premium to Purism to install in the initial purchase. I expected better of Purism.

Winning the debate on encryption — a 101 guide for politicians
Dear Politicians, With elections coming up and quite a few cringe-worthy comments that have come from many of you and from all sides of the political spectrum, we figured it was time to have a chat about encryption. First, let’s say what you shouldn’t do:
I dropped my #IRC client onto github today! It's 1000sloc of #Tcl/Tk for the core, plus a bunch of plugins. I've been using it as my primary #IRC client for the past couple of years, so it's well-used.
It's not for everyone, but I'd say it's one of the most hackable #IRC clients out there.
seems purism is helping fund a risc-v hybrid cpu/gpu... idk if marketing or substance and a risc-v laptop is years off, but it cheers me up to at least see this talked about :)
"We see a bright future for the RISC-V in general and see a strong need to develop free additional building blocks around the RISC-V core. Because keep in mind, the RISC-V foundation is only concerned about the ISA, there are some free implementations of the ISA but to make a CPU or even SOC it takes a lot more partially complex building blocks, like a GPU/VPU. That’s why Purism puts its money where its mouth is and contributes to the effort :)" - Nicole, CTO
