Found this site https://citizenlab.ca/ and whoa actually many good reads , to be at.
Citizen lab, an interdisciplinary laboratory focuses on research, development, and high-level strategic policy and legal engagement at the intersection of information and communication technologies, human rights, and global security.
The book by Igor Zhirkov (auth.) - Low-Level Programming_ C, Assembly, and Program Execution on Intel® 64 Architecture-Apress (2017) is rich, from assembly to C, found this book as a good one.
I am looking for an alternative to Keil and Proteus for GNU/linux system. Does anyone have idea or alternative to them, or how well they work on wine?
Why is it that the "frightening AI" news stories these days seem to be about AI that's frighteningly bad, rather than AI that's frighteningly good?
since judicial system makes decision rationally on the basis of proof not on human emotions(let it be basis only,) i wish to have an AI which knows our law and pushnishments well and gives judgement and we can take help of lawyers how well that decision is doing (for analysis) i think we can reduce case solving if we can improve at this one, if anyone has thought about this let me know

Edward Snowden (@snowden)
Seven years ago, as the news declared I was being charged as a criminal for speaking the truth, I never imagined that I would live to see our courts condemn the NSA's activities as unlawful and in the same ruling credit me for exposing them.
And yet that day has arrived.
By demanding encryption backdoors, Politicians are not asking us to choose between security and privacy. They are asking us to choose no security. Here's why: https://tutanota.com/blog/posts/why-a-backdoor-is-a-security-risk
We must fight encryption backdoors around the world. 💪 #privacy #HumanRight

What framework would you prefer, if you had to work on server side web development, use nosql db (mongo, etc) to just make server side api's with python ?
Had a thought with django, but its rigid with MVC,
flask had a thought on this but just api specific,
fastapi viewed it, but need to know more on this

Tor's Anti-Censorship space
The state of circumvention
Use an obfs4 bridge. You can request obfs4 bridges in three ways: directly in Tor Browser, by visiting bridges.torproject.org, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. More technical users can set up their own obfs4 bridge. Unfortunately, many of the bridges you obtain this way may not work in China. We are currently implementing a social bridge distribution system called Salmon, which will make it significantly harder for the GFW to block obfs4 bridges. More on that below.
Use Snowflake. Snowflake is currently only available in our Tor Browser alpha version but is on track to be part of Tor Browser stable. Our most recent changes added a new set of STUN servers, making Snowflake available in China and other places that block access to Google services. We are currently stress testing the system to handle more users as we move towards a stable release.
Use meek-azure. While meek-azure should work everywhere (including behind the GFW), it is overloaded and therefore slow. Microsoft's Azure CDN (which meek-azure is based on) is expensive, which is why we have to place a traffic cap on the meek-azure bridge.
What are our challenges?
a network protocol (for example WebRTC, obfs4, or TLS) and
an endpointto connect to (for example a Snowflake proxy, a CDN server for meek, or an obfs4 bridge).
What are our priorities?
Implement a feedback loop that hands out bridges to censorship measurement platforms such as OONI and feedsthe resulting reachability information back into bridge distribution. That means that if a user from country X requests a bridge, we won't give them a bridge that's known to be blocked in country X.
Our reimplementation will periodically test bridges with the help of bridgestrap so that we won't be handing out bridges whose obfs4 port is firewalled, or that are otherwise broken.
We are working on building the Salmon bridge distribution system, which will help with the problem of endpoint blocking. Salmon was originally proposed in a research paper at PETS'17. The idea is that users have a "reputation score" that goes down when one of their bridges is blocked and it goes up if their assigned bridges remain unblocked. If a user's reputation score gets too low, the user gets blocked, and if it gets high enough, the user can invite others to the system. Take a look at this net4people thread for a crisp overview of Salmon.

使用 obfs4 网桥。 您可以通过三种方式获取 obfs4网桥：直接在Tor浏览器中请求，访问bridges.torproject.org,或者发送电子邮件到 email@example.com。更熟悉技术的用户可以 建立自己的obfs4网桥。不幸的是，许多通过这种方式获得的网桥可能无法在中国使用。我们目前正在 实施一个称为Salmon的社会化网桥分配系统，这将大大增加GFW封杀obfs4网桥的难度。 以下有更多对Salmon的介绍。
使用meek-azure。 虽然meek-azure理论上应该在任何地方都可以使用（包括在GFW以内），但它已超载运行，所以速度很慢。微软的Azure CDN（meek-azure是基于Azure CDN的）价格比较贵，所以我们必须在meek-azure网桥上设置流量上限。
包含Salmon网桥发布系统，这将有助于解决端点屏蔽的问题。Salmon源于PETS'17的一篇研究论文。在Salmon系统里，每个用户有个“信誉分数“。当一个用户的网桥被屏蔽时，这个用户的信誉分数会下降， 而如果一个用户的网桥一直都没有被屏蔽，这个用户的信誉分数会上升。如果一个用户的信誉分数太低用户就会被封，而如果一个用户的信誉分数够高，用户就可以邀请其他人加入系统。 这篇net4people帖子对Salmon有很s清晰的概述。我们正在构建Salmon网桥发布系统。
(Google: "Ahaa, so your weak at making emotional expression",
Fb: "wait wait so u dont like that political party, time to earn money, wooho,
Amazon: "so you were looking at fat removal product and last time you said i remember 100%, aaha gotcha ur insecure about your weight ")
If google, fb, microsoft, tracking scripts, etc were a real people, how it would feel to have them sit next to you with their eyes, ears, nose wide open making note on what you are seeing , saying, listening, your insecurities, your weakness, etc and moke about it to other people making money out of you.
Well thats how this(virtual) survelliance and misuse of data collection is, with lots of virtualization we forget that its an actual thing and why it matters.
