Apparently, "ZRTP End-to-End Encryption cannot Protect VBR Streams. When using ZRTP + SRTP for encryption in any stretch that goes on the clearnet, be sure to never select a VBR (variable bitrate) codec as the pauses in a conversations produce fingerprints in the encrypted stream that allow the adversary to infer what words are being said." I assume all #WebRTC based solutions (#matrix, #signal, #jitsimeet) suffer the same.
Eben Moglen was interview for an NPR segment about the

I was chatting recently with a friend about how there should be more conferences that cross over SciFi and (open source) tech geekery. I think my favorite conference of 2018 was Blerd City. I got to play with comics nerds, which took me outside my usual comfort zone in wonderful ways. And connecting to geeky and techy communities of color was really just what I needed during the summer doldrums. https://www.blerdcityconference.com/

EU politics, Iceland
... how does this relate to #Brexit?
Well, if you want to do your own corrupt local government power things, it's really annoying to have to take a higher, external authority into account.
Almost all the consumer protection improvements in Iceland were due to passing mandatory EU/EEA legislation.
The EU has flaws, but from my POV it's also been a major force for improving governance.
I feel like I once saw a list of ActivityPub projects, and one of them was a personal event service... Something that could potentially replace Facebook for events.
I don't *think* it was GetTogether (which is more of a MeetUp-like thing).
Does anyone remember something similar? Or is my unreliable memory just making things up on me?
