#36C3 The Moxie talk was what I expected. A long list of reasons why he doesn't like decentralization. His arguments that centralized systems are more censorship resistant by relying on proxies/vpns were flimsy and the usual idea of foccussing on things which are easy rather than things which are more robust to changes isn't futureproof at all.
There are going to be even more problems in future and centralized systems are not going to hold up well. If whatever jurisdiction Moxie's server is in decides to have an internet shutdown then it's game over. It doesn't matter if the user interface is easy if the server is gone.
#USA's "smears against China's sovereignty affect global stability and development" - Chinese diplomat. Really? Not the Chinese imprisonment of 1 million #Uighur? Not the Chinese construction of islands in the South China Sea?? Not the Chinese eradication of #Tibetan culture? What a f***ing joke....#China acting like the victim.
#Denmark and #Sweden shock me with their decision to deny #refugee status on the grounds someone comes from "firmly controlled Damascus". Controlled by a regime that has a less than acceptable human rights record. #Assad is a douchebag #dictator. Pure and simple. Sweden and Denmark, wake up to yourselves.
