I've been thinking that working on marketing for libre projects would be awesome!
Is there anyone on the fediverse I could talk to about getting a leg into that industry?
And I'm not talking about just drawings and illustrations but graphics, photoediting and videos, and finally ideas / marketing strategies.
I think I could be a great asset to projects out there.
"This is the future, I’m afraid. An automated future where no one actually knows how things work."
is anyone still using the #bitcoin binaries for 32-bit x86 linux?
if you do, please let us know—the current idea is to phase them out in the not-so-distant future
thanks for reviving the Bitcoin Merges bot @orionwl :)

Breaking encryption puts everyone at risk.
"Even the Defense Department is now pointing out that the government’s quest to weaken encryption lies somewhere between counterproductive and downright harmful." https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/akwwn5/the-defense-department-says-it-needs-the-encryption-the-fbi-wants-to-break
@jon Updated the notes for this Wednesday’s session with some definitions:
- Undefined Behavior (UB)
- Uninitialized variables
- MemorySanitizer (MSan)
and added more resources.
Thanks to practicalswift for his pedagogical efforts and work on this in Bitcoin Core.
Notes and questions for next week's PR review club are up!
This is a good opportunity to learn about and discuss ways to mitigate uninitialized variables and improve our reviewing and testing.
Next week's Bitcoin Core PR review club is on #17639 “Add make check-valgrind to run the unit tests under Valgrind” by @practicalswift to improve detection of uninitialized values -- like the one that recently caused the Bitcoin Core 0.19.0.1 patch release. Notes and questions up soon.
@jon thanks everyone, that was the most-attended review club session yet. it was great to have domain experts like gleb, ethan, and matt join in and participate actively
