New blog post! It's a quick overview over the different keys involved in #matrix 's new cross signing. https://jcg.re/blog/quick-overview-matrix-cross-signing/
Zoom acquired Keybase today.
Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.
Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
Currently playing around with the P2P @firstname.lastname@example.org demo with @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org, come see it live at #FOSDEM tomorrow at 14:30 in the Decentralised Internet and Privacy devroom!
Amnesty International calls Google and Facebook a threat to human rights. We believe that centralization of power in hands of #GAFAM is indeed extremely dangerous. #privacy #decentralization matter for a free society!
Since we've officially entered Christmas season, here's a quick gift recommendation, aka probably my favourite book I've read this year: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. An amazing epic fantasy storyline with a refreshing and well integrated feminist and inclusive inclination, great and well designed characters, loved it 👌
A couple of weeks ago at @ubuconEurope@twitter.com I've started a project to automate the provisioning and management of ephemeral servers for workshops on installing @email@example.com homeservers.
It's called Install Party and it's getting its 1.0 release!

Tiens, c'est assez peu courant pour être mentionné: Pour une fois, ce ne sont pas des documents Word (.doc) qui infectent mais des LibreOffice/OpenOffice (.odt).
Et devinez ce qui déclenche l'infection ? C'est quand Microsoft Word ouvre un ODT sous Windows. Parce que Word continue à traiter les objet OLE comme des objets de confiance.
OLE, le truc que Microsoft a sorti en 1990 et qui a été à la source d'une incommensurable quantité d'infections.
