New essay about how the handling of the Silk Road trial fundamentally changes the legal implications of the internet, technology and what our government claims to have the right to do.
Ross Ulbricht may turn out to be a terrible man, but if his story ends here, we as a society will be the poorer for it.

Hey friends! Just downloaded Antox, unable to register a new username without the system crashing. Figured I'd report it here!

Kernel Version 3.0.66-cyanogenmod
CyanogenMod 10.1-20130304-EXPERIMENTAL-d2tmo-M2
Android Version 4.2.2
Model Number SGH-T999

Mark Winter: looks like #149 build works fine. Minor issue is that other users can't see my avatar yet it could be caused by my mobile network operator (experienced inability to send a picture over 3g, managed to do so via wlan: in the former case the transfer stuck at ~20%).
And no, I don't think the profile was encrypted since I saved it from antox before.
Thanks for the crash fix. I feel quite upset about my extreme lack of time to work on antox sources until July :<

Post-aurora at Google, my coworkers hated OTP. Wish they could see what it takes to be an opinionated woman online.

I absolutely agree, but it's not a widely supported infrastructure. I wish there was a twofactorauth.org for setting up keys.

The community is really coming together for the Dojo, only $58K to go!
 
Just backed +Hacker Dojo's Kickstarter campaign — and you should too, if you participate in coworking, open source projects, or other local community-driven initiatives!

They're raising money to fund various renovations to their space to meet new requirements from the City of Mountain View. Of the $250K that they hope to raise, they've pulled in $184,781.28 — good progress, but not enough!

Learn more about the space (and the deep community benefits the space has provided) and how to donate here:

We're going to get some posters and color up here, but for now, the white paint makes this room feel way bigger.

Apple: Please consider updating your 2FA and support policies to better protect those at risk for online harassment. 

Internet: I could use a hand getting this out there.

Sharing on behalf of some friends (Rachel, and +Katy Levinson). It's worth noting that it sucks that Hacker Dojo is on the line for bringing the bathrooms and rest of the space into ADA compliance rather than the landlord, given it's been twenty fscking years since the ADA passed into law, but I think it's quite fair that the law should apply to the space :/.
Mountain View's Hacker Dojo needs community assistance. Mountain View's Hacker Dojo needs some love and attention to pull through a difficult situation. They recently got in trouble with city ...

It's not "somebody" -- I've isolated this as automated and +Winona Nash is looking in to it. I think it may be happening because a bunch of Newt Gingrich supporters collaborated to mark all my comments about his tax plan as inappropriate a couple weeks ago, causing me to get suspended and lose access to Gmail/Docs/Groups/+/Reader/etc. for six hours. It doesn't seem to have helped Gingrich at the polls, though. Thanks for vizibilizing me, and I hope the landlord lets you do a tank and it saves you a couple hundred grand.

I put 6 nails and probably half a pound of glue to keep this trim stable. It had better stay this time!

Pretty critical part of a WPI undergrad education. Hard liquor is kinda a ripoff by the handle, but you can't beat the convenience.

While the cab driver was courteous and wonderful, even after telling the dispatcher this was a situation of some urgency the cab took more than 25 minutes to get to a location within Mountain View. I would have been better off jogging to the train station and grabbing one of the random cabs there.

This place is wonderful, a real surprise gem. Blows competition at its price range out of the water. They even have wifi.

World class education that provided more opportunities than I can name. The teachers are amazing, but sadly the administration works hard daily to undo all of their excellent work.
