Microsoft invoking 1984, in an article that concludes 1984 is totally fine, as long as there's a piece of paper forbidding the press of that follow-person-around-town button. https://blogs.microsoft.com/on-the-issues/2018/12/06/facial-recognition-its-time-for-action/

> Ian Levy, GCHQ’s Technical Director, recently posted on the Lawfare blog what GCHQ wants tech companies to do. Buried in a post full of justifications [...], Levy explained that GCHQ wants secure messaging services, like WhatsApp, Signal, Wire, and iMessage, to create deceitful user interfaces that hide who private messages are being sent to.
Never thought about this before, but the #Firefox "Reader View" is a decent way to bypass some adblock detectors.

Most censorship techniques adopted by ISPs around the world are subtle, so it can be hard to distinguish intentional government censorship from transient network failures or other issues.
Transparency is essential.
OONI's dataset is probably the largest publicly-available resource on internet censorship to date:
Finally going to merge Python3 support into the master branch of Joinmarket today :)
There should be a new release shortly that includes that, and coincurve (which will just make the secp256k1 binding a bit more reliable in terms of install, it's better maintained), and a few other fixes.
I'm also noting (being a relatively active user) that coinjoins are significantly more reliable after the random_under_max choosing algo introduced in 0.4. Yg bot seems to average about 20 txs/day (low fees).
Wow the FOSDEM room lineup looks pretty great this year: https://fosdem.org/2019/news/2018-10-14-accepted-developer-rooms/

That's my kind of jam right there
ASCII art to SVG, in an interactive editor. This is delightful. https://ivanceras.github.io/svgbob-editor/
although there are some instructions to get values into registers, and some to make jumps, that leaves no way
- to do a system call directly—needs 0x73 and 0x00
- to write a 'ecall' instruction on the stack to jump to
approaches that might work, are:
- if an existing offset of an ecall instruction is known it can jump there!
- in a similar way, if it knows the offset of a memory write+ret, it could use that
this goes into ROP territory, this means that it can never be self-contained :)
did anyone have a go yet at alphanumeric shellcode for #riscv?
it doesn't look very promising (no memory store instructions !):
