the bitcoin-core-dev@linuxfoundation.org (not bitcoin-dev) mailing list is now officially an announcements list

it was already *effectively* an announcements list for a long time—no discussion ever happened on it—but it is set up as moderated now

so if you are interested in a low-traffic list for notifications of releases, release candidates and security warnings, subscribe to:

I've never seen a supposed "right wing extremist" remind me so much of the insane hippie lefties I knew in art school. 😂

Maybe it would be good to think about how to get more post-merge PR review in bitcoin. That way you don't have to trade off against delaying the merge or rebase issues, and it's not like problems found after merge shouldn't get fixed.

I once thought I too could protect the data of a lot of users.

I ran a machine learning company that analyzed social media data.

Unlike competitors I made this a free public search engine.

Investors demanded I turn it into a political propaganda machine.

I ultimately quit.

Did I post this here yet? This article contains more useful information about mitigating personal virus transmission risk than anything else I've seen so far. Includes math for the mathies, and easy to understand conclusions for the non-mathies. medium.com/swlh/so-youre-going

@waxwing listening to the slp podcast seems like accumulating most of the change into a single output that's an eltoo channel factory would make cross input sig aggregation pretty effective for coin joins. Something like all inputs > x, all outputs bar one < x, and the remaining output a channel factory. Could have some atomic lightning txs implied too I think.
