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]?
“We must revive Gopherspace”
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"
Civil servants aren't off the hook:
"...enter civil servants’ personal credit information concerning reports on events, records of sincerity and cleanliness in government affairs, the results of annual evaluations, acts violating laws, disciplines and contract into their files"
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
We've made a preview site showing how Fluidkeys can make PGP simple for engineering teams...
I'd really appreciate your feedback!
Mine and @ian's daily goals:
1) merge updated `fk secret send` (now you can send text files)
2) finalise design for `fk secret receive` when there's a filename attached
3) build a working spike on "safety words" (cryptographic verification) for joining a team on Fluidkeys
Engineer, maker, dreamer.
