The #Wire team are open to the idea of using #XMPP for federation between instances of the Wire server:
"Please feel free to use this issue to post links / papers / reading material of any kind that might help us make a more informed decision"

Thanks everyone for the great time at #BreakingBitcoin! It was great seeing old faces again, and new faces for the first time. :)

I've never in my life disagreed with so many people about so many things, and yet we all (they and I) agree that Bitcoin is necessary. Some people want to topple governments, while others want to end wars. We are all Satoshi, with all the responsibilities that this entails.

Make no mistake. There are people willing to launch wars and kill thousands or millions of innocent people to gain control over a monetary supply.

A DDoS is a “Distributed Denial of Service attack”: your servers get GADZILLIONS of garbage requests which stop them from processing legitimate requests. Imagine that an army of lemmings just jumped the queue at McDonald’s in front of you – and each is ordering a whopper. (1/2)

When the US broke from the Gold Standard, it was presented as a “temporary” measure — we never went back.

When QE was used in 2008, it was presented as an “emergency” measure — now it is standard.

What will it take for us to stop believing the humans manipulating the economy?
