We try not to re-toot our own stuff usually, but this is important: #GnuPG protects #journalists and their sources w/ #encryption. They've launched a funding campaign: gnupg.org/donate/

#OCCRP and our partners use #GnuPG daily. It keeps journalists and their sources safe. It keeps our communication confidential and ensures its integrity.

It also needs all the love it can get. Please consider helping #GnuPG help journalists and their sources around the globe. #SupportGnuPG

So, possible 'hot take' here -

-NOBODY- looks good in the 'Reality Winner' case.

The Intercept was extremely careless with how they handled the material they were given.

Reality herself is apparently so utterly inept it's astonishing that she was able to get the document in the first place.

And the counterintel that managed to finally catch her? THEY are also inept; she -sucks- and she -still- managed to get the document out.

Remember in the 90s, when teens were more tech savvy than adults, and everyone assumed that the savviest would just keep getting younger? Now it's 2017, and the people who were teens in the 90s are the most tech savvy generation and probably will be until they die.

Kids don't grow up with computers any more, they grow up with iPhones. If it's possible to learn to code on an iPhone, it's despite Apple's best efforts.

Huh, Matt Furie has killed off his character Pepe the frog. As in an in-comic funeral and everything.

A classy and symbology-rich way to respond to his creation being hijacked by internet Nazis. Well done, Mr. Furie.

Those who would limit their empathy to a tribe reveal that they don't identify as *minds*, but as some inert *thing*, some race, some tradition, some attribute.

@rechelon @maradydd this has happened to me previously as well. unsure of the cause
