While trying to convince us all that they take user seriously, Google is prohibiting ad blockers in Chrome. Trackers will be able to follow your activity across the Internet - and Google will be able to continue collecting its ad-based revenue.

I just tweeted at a friend when he asked about why I don't have a Instagram account

"Why have you not got a mastodon account?

It's time to start taking a side in the technology and culture discussion. The future isn't more walled gardens, more celebrity, more attention grabbing, more of the same crap we have.
It's time to get radical and out of the comfort of the status quo of centralised ownership."

Quite like my quick fire rant... Just came off the top of my head

SAFE Network Dev Update - June 6, 2019

Here are some of the main things to highlight this week:

- RFC 59 published. It describes a proposal to integrate Boneh-Lynn-Shacham cryptographic scheme into Routing.
- safe_client_libs is now actively using Jenkins.
- New edition of SAFE Buzz with mobile dev Ravinder Jangra.
- quic-p2p implemented in Routing.


How hard can it be to design a network crypto-token to last decades into the future? Pretty damn hard as it turns out. Join the debate at the forum. safenetforum.org/t/rfc-57-safe

"Often when we think about the right to privacy, we think of the right to be let alone, unmolested by the state. But the digital age has given rise to industrialized data mining, content curation, and automated decision-making, all of which undermine democracy and intensify social divisions. It calls for a more sophisticated understanding of privacy—one that can appreciate both the collective and individual nature of this right." newrepublic.com/article/154026

SAFE Network Dev Update - May 30, 2019

Here are some of the main things to highlight this week:

- Safecoin RFC has generated a lot of activity and discussion
- Proofs of Concept for AppendOnlyData, MutableData, unpublished Immutable Data, and Safecoin being worked on.
- PoC version of the SAFE CLI
- SAFE Buzz interview with routing dev Bart


- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

Interesting article by Ruben Vanborgh of about the perils of too much theory and not enough practice when it comes to developing new technologies.


SAFE Network Dev Update - May 23, 2019

Here are some of the main things to highlight this week:

- RFC 57: Safecoin revised
- RFC 58: Reliable Message Delivery
- The new data types that were introduced in the RFCs last week (RFC 54 & 55 ) are being prototyped as a Proof of Concept .
- SAFE CLI HighLevel Design Document.
- Nikita spoke at the first meetup in London.


"All the way through the design and build of the SAFE Network, we’ve been guided by a core set of principles which act as the foundations of a new , autonomous internet. Here, we’ll explore them all in a little detail."
