Maybe it's not decentralized blockchains the ones stealing the payments cake after all.

I find this article interesting https://www.kapwing.com/blog/a-female-engineers-opinion-on-fewer-women-in-tech/ in the way it explains why there are less women in tech. It's a little bit of a refreshing view point.
I really dislike the way keybase.io has emailed me about the PGP vulnerability. It's not only that they used it as Trojan horse to get users into their system (including me) but now they claim to be vastly more secure to it and treat PGP in a condescend way. I'm really thinking about deleting my account now.
To be honest, it doesn't "force" you as long as you don't have cycles. But doing the tree in a Rust way it's not only safer for memory management but also faster. Pretty satisfied with this result and the learning experience overall.
I believe the reason is due to the way Rust handles memory it forces you to write self-referenced data structures (like a tree) without using pointers but using handles. Thus this achieves a lot better data locality which is really important for performance.

This is huge. Russia’s unelected government is afraid of communications it can’t monitor, so it tries to shut down Telegram. Telegram moves to AWS and Google Cloud. Russia BLOCKS both services.
I'm very confused after reading https://www.theverge.com/2018/4/10/17215406/webauthn-support-chrome-firefox-edge-fido-password-free What is the relationship between password free systems and phishing?
And remember, the more factors the better. Raplacing passwords with devices is just replacing something I know with something I have. It's just different attack vectors.
This talk is truly incredible:
It's about how computer chips are made and it's from 6 years ago!
