i ramble at length about wabisabi and bitcoin privacy more generally, and slightly misrepresent some important research because my memory is unreliable^W^W^W^W^Wto confuse surveillance capitalists ;-)

Design for a CoinSwap Implementation for Massively Improving Bitcoin Privacy and Fungibility

Alice sends tx A->B but the coins actually end up in Z. Then when normie Carol sends a tx an analyst must deal with possibility that Carol's coins disappeared too

Good news: the sale of the .org domain to Ethos Capital, the private equity firm that was supposed to buy it, has been rejected!

I wrote what I hope is an intuitive explanation of how keyed-verification anonymous credentials can be used to build CoinJoin transactions, sharing here for feedback before publishing it more widely

This seems like a chilling conversation for Americans:

♲ @itsahashtaglife@twitter.com: A tale of two fires that nails where we’re at right now. We can raise a billion dollars to rebuild a tourist attraction but we can’t take care of human beings who need help.

PRIORITIES people. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate ours.

@cwebber @AceNovo @Gargron I don't really understand how any of the arguements against AP C2S don't also apply to micropub C2S. Micropub has create and delete, but ALSO update, AND it can do all kinds of 'post types' - according to the *microformats 2* vocab (which is managed on a wiki by a small community, rather than a W3C Rec like AS2) - which still may not correspond with stuff a Mastodon server would expect.
AP clearly specifies how servers should federate incoming activities [ctd]

please destroy my draft idea for improving bitcoin fungibility by helping wallets interoperate more easily:

of the 4 listed options for serializing this data, I only think the first 2 are viable right now (bip 124 is a more general solution, but is incomplete). not sure which one is preferable, due to tradeoffs made

dear lazyweb, are any of you familiar with jupyterlab and/or jupyter notebook server implementation details and willing to sanity check a hare brained plan of mine?
