SocialCG minutes up. We spent most of it talking about decentralized anti-abuse tooling! https://www.w3.org/wiki/SocialCG/2017-10-11/minutes
Another whitepaper I (co-)wrote for Rebooting Web of Trust: Smarm: Requirements for a smart-signatures Scheme https://github.com/WebOfTrustInfo/rebooting-the-web-of-trust-fall2017/blob/master/draft-documents/smarm.md
Scheme is a literal Scheme here with pure-lexically-scoped-object-capabilities as a language layer for doing smart signatures/contracts.
I keep getting nerd-sniped by people in the Rebooting Web of Trust community. Too many interesting problems!
Easy. You basically misused the transitive property, ascribed a small portion of RiseUp's userbase and designated that group as the main cohort.

So, given that the NSA exists, and can be considered to have hypervisor root to all US clouds, and that some extremely *motivated* forces on the US far right with access to the White House would love to have the NSA's capability (as yet they don't - but I expect eventually they'll get that)...
... the world is in the position of actual Nazis and just plain ruthless people having at least read access to *all* corporate clouds.
Expect this. Understand it. Imagine what it means.
Has anyone done any attacks that trick users by loading a font in their browser that transposes some characters? Seems like a risk somewhere
TRAIN UPDATE: Lots of retirees really like trains too IME, spend a lot of their year traveling around on trains as train-vacations
maybe this will be me some day
TRAIN UPDATE: rustic small town on one side and another train passing on the other
Only sad bits of train so far is dining cart ran out of vegetarian food so I had to get stuff from the cafe cart instead (first world train problems) and I accidentally dented my thermos, but you can't blame the train for that one
Overall, still an A+ train ride
TRAIN UPDATE: Slept well (took advantage of $10 pack containing blanket / pillow / earplugs / sleeping mask since I didn't have those); now watching sunrise
