If you don't want your software to be used by Google, it's enough to just license it under AGPL: opensource.google/docs/using/a

It's 28th of October and everybody is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia. Meanwhile, I am finalizing the new firmware for Trezor, which will be released tomorrow. Independent organizational structures built on top of a truly decentralized economy are the future!

I am at @NixCon2018 - haven't been to Linux-related conference for quite some time and it seems it was a good choice to come here. Really love all the cool stuff people around are building. Exciting times!

Certain French hardware wallet producer is using sponsored links to appear in Amazon and Google search results if you look for the keyword "Trezor." I guess that's investors' money well spent. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Reminds me of the "Bcash is the real Bitcoin" bait and switch scam.

I'm pleased to announce the release of the Bitcoin Extended Public Key Converter. Hopefully this will save other Bitcoin developers a little bit of time while building and testing software. jlopp.github.io/xpub-converter

One of the best and entertaining talks I've ever seen (by James Mickens): youtu.be/ajGX7odA87k Must see for every computer scientist and especially AI/ML people.
