billymg[asciilifeform]: lulzy headline
billymg[asciilifeform]: what went wrong? even the average normie not dumb enough to use "totally secure" messaging app?
asciilifeform: 'we're shocked, shocked, that there's gamblin' goin' on in this establishment!'(tm)(r)
asciilifeform: the 'ohnoez, they realized that reich inmates can aaalso use wunderbar anonytard chats!' desperate psyop doubling down is lulzy
billymg[asciilifeform]: yeah, was halfway expecting the "ackshually, usg pulled funding because the app is too good" explanation, and sure enough...
bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2017-12-15 asciilifeform: !#s marlinspike

bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2016-08-01 phf: i like how marlinspike's whisper is the secure alternative to telegram. every time i mention telegram in any tech venue there's always some clown going "use whisper instead telegram is insecure!!!", because in their heads whisper, running on a fully locked down platform, obviously is

bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2016-06-12 asciilifeform: moxie m pushes shitphones. and ssl monkey tricks. and 'pgp is obsolete'.
asciilifeform: d00d is 1 of the longest-playing reich assets in (what passes for) the crypto space.
asciilifeform: lavishly funded, equipped with 'greek chorus' of bootlickers/upvoters/repasters which accompanies him errywhere, etc
bitbot[asciilifeform]: (trilema) 2015-02-25 mats: then goes on hn to say he doesn't know what the solution is but shills Open Whisper Systems, Mailpile, LEAP
