I'm going to keep reiterating this because the "power to the people" / "collective domination is good" tendency of the Left keeps creeping back:

The hardest part of using PGP, key management, doesn't scale well in large organizations. We solved this problem at First Look Media (where there are over 200 PGP users) with GPG Sync. We maintain a keylist, and everyone subscribes to it, so everyone has the latest public key for everyone else.

I'm excited to announce that we've submitted a draft RFC that will turn GPG Sync into an internet standard!

I think tech!we need to take a really hard look at how we ended up living over json/xml on port 80. It's a recurring pattern of self-enforced helplessness.

@resist_berlin "WE have tools available that were considered ridiculously radical only a generation ago. Why are we using them so sheepishly?"

Damn is that ever a rallying cry.

Fight for the users, and all that.

Silly but actually serious question: if you needed to mic a sleeping cat, how would you do it? Could you do it on a sub-$200 budget? Sub-$100? Sub-$50?

I know very little about sound design but am eager to learn.

I've been lying on my bed, thinking about literal translations for German words. I came across Eichhörnchen (squirrel) and my brain was like "oak horny" and that's the story of how I was physically unable to get out if bed for six whole minutes because I was laughing so hard.

To all of you who have called, and those who wrote an e-mail, and those that support in all different ways, from very vocal to very silent -- thank you.

You guys are amazing. You are taking part in a political and historical process.

This is an old one, but a golden one. And it applies to 2010, 2012, and now just as well.
