@wiktor Hey, d'you know of an existing authentication protocol over HTTPS that uses PGP keys?
Thinking about tunnelling our API calls inside e.g. AES-GCM (like 1Password for teams), looking for an existing mechanism for establishing the shared secret based on the user's PGP key...
Awesome watching @ian automate deleting email addresses from a Google Sheet after 30 days. More of this to come ...
Trying to detangle my final Google thing: Calendar.
I've been stuck because of reciprocal sharing with my family's calendars.
Google makes it impossible for them to share with me if I don't have a Google account...
Solution is to keep an otherwise inactive Google account *just* to "receive" their calendar, then pull their cals into Fastmail by connecting it to the G account :\
Huge week starting on the teams functionality in Fluidkeys and working through how to become a non-profit. Gonna be a busy March :) https://www.fluidkeys.com/weeknotes/week-29/
Forgot to mention the microphone we built into that smoke alarm, oops.
I’m officially intrigued. I’ve never used Gopher but it sounds like we’d get along... does it make sense to port/serve my blog to/on Gopher[space]?

Thanks to everyone whose valuable feedback guided today's release of Fluidkeys 👋
Now you can send private keys and certs direct from a file with no fiddly copy/paste 💾
Nor are companies:
"Perfect credit cooperation models between retailers and suppliers. Strengthen anti-monopoly and anti-unfair competition law enforcement, strengthen investigation and prosecution of acts of market distortion, false propaganda, commercial swindling, commercial slander, commercial bribes and other such unlawful acts, expose model cases and major cases increase the costs for enterprises to break trust, and stimulate sincere business and fair competition"
Some select highlights:
"Sincerity in government affairs is the crux of social credit system construction..."
"[to] perfect mechanisms and procedures for government policymaking, raise the transparency of policymaking"
"...broaden channels for public participation in government policymaking, strengthen social supervision over and constraints on the use of power, improve government credibility, establish an honest image of an open, fair and clean government."
(it isn't how I expected)
Finished prepping my talk on China's Social Credit System (thanks for the great links).
I was most surprised by the official Planning Outline [translated]: https://chinacopyrightandmedia.wordpress.com/2014/06/14/planning-outline-for-the-construction-of-a-social-credit-system-2014-2020/
1/2 of the focus is on government itself (typically I read only about area #3):
1. integrity in government affairs
2. commercial integrity
3. societal integrity
4. judicial credibility
Slightly sad but mostly relieved to be shutting down my PGP keyserver monitoring service.
It wasn't working well and it was difficult and stressful to maintain.
Planning how to close it respectfully and delete people's data has felt good. Getting some nice email replies :D
Engineer, maker, dreamer.
