I applaud everyone who has been cancelling events to slow the spread of COVID-19. I know cancelling an event you've been working on for months is incredibly hard to do and may cost you large amounts of money, but your sacrifice is likely contributing to saving thousands of lives. Thank you!

Important PSA for people living in the US: The FCC has been forced to reopen public comment on the Net Neutrality decision following a court case by Mozilla. The influx of bots (suspiciously using the names of telecom subscribers) that were anti-Net Neutrality has caused this. The FCC is trying to bury this, and very few are reporting on it.
To (re)file your thoughts on the FCC's decision, go to fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express. Proceeding 17-108 is Net Neutrality. This ends in March.

Person sitting across from me on the bus was reading from a kindle and I realized I kinda missed the old days when books had covers and you could start a conversation with, "hey, I read that book..."

I am seeing similar to discussions as we had before about P2EP/Payjoin - how to create backout facility in case of maliciousness, how to avoid probing. PoDLE is one idea, but there are others as per discussion. h/t @ZmnSCPxj also.

A very old post from @lukedashjr, with a clever way to create an auction using #bitcoin payments.

Seems even more relevant now, PSBTs would make this a lot simpler to implement.

This says everything I've thought about #Brave for a long time, way better than I can say it.

#Science Constructing a Square of Equal Area to a given Polygon

- Librem 5: $700
- Librem 5 USA: $2,000

It's interesting to see how huge the price difference is to produce something in the U.S. versus more affordable manufacturing countries. I think it's cool that Purism is offering that option, though $2k is way too much for me.

Hey all, I'm writing a post about the best open-source alternatives to Google's Android apps. I already have a lot of the big ones (Firefox, ProtonMail, K-9 Mail, Signal, etc.), any more suggestions?
