Just because it's designed for NSA doesn't mean it's bad. Actually, many protocols we use today was designed by, or helped, NSA, such as IPsec and TLS.
What I meant was that, if you want to create a crypto library, you need a proof that it works as specified.

I know you probably weren't jewing me and that you're honest but it felt like it. It's made by the guy who made libsodium, and I rike it. I was posting it here so it gains some attention.

They're telling you to write to your representative. Not saying you'll succeed or have an impact though.
There are also other methods such as contributing to projects that hinder attempts of mass surveillance in your country/state.
Or getting your family to use instant messaging clients with good encryption.

Don't work, no one gives a shit about privacy anymore, they just follow the bandwagon and no pretty sheep is allowed to criticize.
>Or getting your family to use instant messaging clients with good encryption.
Never worked. They just use whatever the other people is using. I've tried so fucking many times that it's not even fun anymore (I suggested not some obscure software, but Signal, that has fancy interface and all - not once they installed it).

Something must happen and I think it's close (~2022), unfortunatelly.

>>12186 not 12185,
but what have you succeeded on?

You are dealing with a social problem you cannot fix.
FBI here is admitting encryption and good OPSEC actually work,
But if your family, and society as a whole, does not want either,
what are you left with?

I'm ignoring OP, and several respondents here who clearly read NSA's ANT Catalog,
and know clearly how NSA bypasses encryption by fuzzing Qualcomm chips worldwide[1].
NVM LTE is designed top to bottom to dox everyone in the planet (which is why
Snowden is COINTEL).

So tell me, what should I try?

Well, like I said, it's an improvement over the previous version. It looks nice. Good job.

>since no one here is interested in contribute but, instead, talk shit.

Sometimes talking shit _is_ contributing. It is when I do it, anyway; my shit talking is (almost) never pointless.

Nonetheless, as a gesture of goodwill, I will read over the list again and attempt to make a more traditional contribution to the list.

Maybe some guy some day invents a way to cache public web page data like layout, css, scripts and content, but the private data will be still strictly passed between core server and user cryptographically signed end-to-end.
On the other hand, should we trust VPS hostings, it's a clear MiTM between website admin and users after all. After all it's one more nail into TCP/IP coffin.

ideas for saving /tech/ general Anonymous 10/16/2017 (Mon) 07:26:55 [Preview] No. 11561 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
We're about halfway through October and about two weeks out from our most esteemed /tech/nician's autistic tantrum over on /operate/:

>>>/operate/7122 it's good reading, he came in with a balloon knot and left with a rectum that you could park a utility van in

so it seems like a good time to reassess the state of the board.

Since October 1st, there have been 0.6 original posts per day on /tech/. I use the term "original" with some reservation, as some of them are just verbatim reposts from 8/tech/. There have been an average of 8.13 replies per day, but most of them were one-line comments or barbs without substance, or memes, or corrections to a previous post. We're averaging about 1 substantive reply per day. Two on a good day. I didn't feel like digging into the numbers any further, but it's my impression that these averages don't even reflect how dire the situation is, as there was a burst of activity at the beginning of the month that has tapered off significantly.

/tech/ is not dead, but it's on life support, and, ironically, none of its denizens seems to know how to service the life support machine.

It would be a shame for this alternative to pigchan and Hiroshima's /g/ to wither through neglect.

Let's brainstorm ideas for keeping this place alive.

That's supposed to be the wiki, but unfortunately most threads on installgentoo wiki in the sticky are outdated or on shit like e cigarettes. The best solution to getting new users familiar with this place would be to have a proper resource for new posters. Back on 4/g/ and almost all of the boards on 4chan with a sticky/wiki, anons will just dismiss all threads looking for newcomer advice with "read the sticky lol" while the wiki itself is outdated and shitty at parts.

Tldr: one possible way to generate new users and stop SOME shit threads is just to have an actually good resource that isn't filled with infographics from 2013. Genuinely good threads will come from experienced users of course, but no new good users will come about if all they see articles that were last edited several years ago. I would just recommend making more infographics/verticals those are the easiest to use in threads

TBH lainchan became shit long LONG time ago (around the time fags on IRC started saying that lainchan is some anarcho communist ground)
From then lainchan was flooded with whiny "let's talk about my life problems but not actually do anything about them" faggots.

It was only a matter of time that style of discussion would transfer into the tech discussions, the lowest fucking common denominator people

I think we should have a thread on improving the wiki here. We could just list various articles that either need to be written or updated, and compile a list of revisions and additions that should be added.

Something I have noticed many people talking about is the lack of expertise/knowledge in the posters. I think it is partially due to being on an anonymous imageboard and not knowing who you’re talking to, or more importantly what they know. People often change how they talk given their audiences level of experience and knowledge in a field. When there is a mismatch, either something seeming too obtuse or lacking in interest or insight, people tend to lose interest.
Of course one solution to that is having some sort of standard of knowledge that can’t be enforced but is expected (like knowing how to install linux, having watched an anime if you’re on /a/, etc.). Then comes the problem of what I might call elitism, which is when the standard alienates too many people. This problem is compounded when you’re board covers multiple subjects, so everyone is expected to know a lot in systems programming, cryptography, electronics, etc. So the people who are experienced with working with micro-controllers for example think this board is lacking because most people do not have the same level of background in their field.
As much as a diversity of backgrounds might be a problem, more users might fix this. At least then they have someone else to talk to, even if most people can’t keep up with them. On the other hand, making sure people have some level of knowledge standard, as was mentioned before, might ameliorate big werdz the lacking board discussion since it could reduce the number of low quality posts.

There are more issues, such as politics clouding up discussion, as well as not citing your sources, but there are other posts for that.

Anyone want to talk about programming on an open source voip client?
