hi all,

Finally some good news out of the congress: they are reintroducing SAFE "Security and Freedom through Encryption" loosening regulations on data-scrambling software. Not perfect but better than the current situation.

More good news, the people advertising for help killing doctors providing abortions have been nailed (Nuremberg Files was the site that posted the names, phone numbers, and home addresses of abortion doctors, and then struck out their names as they were murdered one by one).

Both pieces available from the best code developer's shed in town


What is the extropian position on these two? We no doubt all agree about free crypto, and certainly I am glad the Nuremberg decision happened this way. They are perfect example of first-use force hiding behind free speech. These anti own-body control memes retard the rate at which we get to transcend ourselves
