@rysiek @feld @mulander regarding the issue, some input from Moxie: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1

tl;dr Telegram doesn't encrypt group chats *at all*, there's no paper on a telegram attack & no warning that the chat is not encrypted.

Happy to announce that I'm joining Digital Bazaar half time to help them with FOSS and open standards stuff they're doing!

DB has lead the way on fine tooling as json-ld, etc, so I'm excited that a lot of work we do overlaps with stuff I'm already interested in / working on :)

@rysiek @feld Even though I don't like Signal much, that's understandable. Sadly similar still applies with XMPP, and there really needs to be an XMPP client which can only do encrypted communications so that it's not possible for the user to mess up.

@rysiek Doesn't matter, just stay away from any enterprise messenger if you care about security. they are all going to have backdoors for "compliance".

This week I'm going to bring you three video's from the 2004 album #Musicology! Two music video's and one live video, brought to you in two toots. All because of #PrinceFriday of course.

Let's start with the video of *Cinnamon Girl*, cause it's a controversial one and I like Controversy. The song and video is about discrimination of Arab-Americans after 9/11 and also about the 2003 US invasion in Iraq.

@rysiek @cathal The program itself is still a proprietary mess of several different competing codebases. It's not like it's got a tiny attack surface.

@rysiek
As one has to guess the Group ID on Signal, I feel comfortable only while using Signal, now.

> In a phone call with WIRED, a WhatsApp spokesperson confirmed the researchers' findings, but emphasized that no one can secretly add a new member to a group—a notification does go through that a new, unknown member has joined the group.

Yeah, that solves it. -_-;

For the record, if I use my laptop while it's connected to the powerbank, it just discharges more slowly (not enough current to power it while running).

On the other hand, leaving it connected to my powerbank overnight got it from ~6% to ~43% charged.

I still call that a win.

#PSA for people using #Windows 7 or 8: #Spectre fixes will slow things down. A lot. theverge.com/2018/1/9/16868290

Fix:

Upgrade to Windows 10 for free NOW if you have *any* assistive needs whatsoever (even if temporary ones) microsoft.com/en-us/accessibil

…and/or start using Linux. (Fedora is nice! fedoraproject.org/ 😉)
