asciilifeform: inca fears p2p radio like the proverbial vampire -- crucifix. i'm actually surprised somewhat, that 'ricochet' was even permitted to be built as it were
asciilifeform: i dun know specifically why 'musted die', but in general usg favours the old telecom monopolies; plus prolly didn't help that 'ricochet' did not build gps into the modems and made it possible to pass packets directly over the mesh, i.e. 'potentially terrorist' net
asciilifeform: ( 'ricochet' cost pennies to the dollar of gsm, at the time, for packetism )

mircea_popescu: but anyway : the "wounded man ties up 3 soldiers", other than the baked in presumptions that these are the caring kind of soldiers and the inept kind of wounded, also neglects to mention that ricochet has killed more peopl;e than direct fire since the invention of gunpowder. and by a factor of 10 to 100, not piddly.

sina: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-06-10#1668370 <<< mircea_popescu I couldn't help but laugh at someone who is saying everyone should fork ricochet.im and work on it instead, or use OTR or whatever then blurt out that some just-barely-specified software isn't resistant to SIGINT attacks on your keyboard ☝︎
mircea_popescu: https://github.com/ricochet-im/ricochet/blob/master/doc/design.md for archival
asciilifeform: 'Ricochet uses the Tor network to reach your contacts without relying on messaging servers. It creates a hidden service, which is used to rendezvous with your contacts without revealing your location or IP address.'

maqp: (IMO you should be spending your efforts on Ricochet or fork it.)
maqp: The current version has 72 hex char key you have to manually type to transmitter device; it's similar to manually typing Ricochet/Tox ID
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo nah, this guy did his research. slugs better : ricochet.
mircea_popescu: (also, the proposed device does not actually work. the female ass is exactly antithetical to the steel ball. negative ricochet factor. fortunately.)
asciilifeform: (ricochet modems could connect with one another without repeater, and i briefly searched if classical 'radiomodem' is still sold by anyone)
