cazalla: seeing bingoboingo is not around atm, anyone able to lend me their technical expertise on a document?

cazalla: it's all good, gonna just post it up and people can come to own conclusions
Adlai: whatever happened to the digest-redact-encrypt model of leakage chumpioned by assange et al?
mats: p sure that was snowden you're talking about
mats: never mind.
mats: though, as i remember it, assange opposed any kind of redaction, and left wikileaks over it

asciilifeform: 'Purism is manufacturing the motherboard, and screen printing the keyboard.' << piece of shit. printed key marks - come off.
asciilifeform: molded - never.
asciilifeform: 'the BIOS does use coreboot, which includes a binary from Intel, called FSP.' << ahahahaha lol
asciilifeform: 'We are working with Intel to allow us to scrub, release, and maintain the source for this, but haven’t finalized that yet. We are devoted to freeing this binary.' << pigs will fly.
asciilifeform: anyone here ever try actually building any of the supposedly 'open' sources ever put out by intel ?
asciilifeform: i have.
asciilifeform: 1) they don't build 2) you need winblows even to try, and the entire build scheme consists of winblows 'bat' files.

kakobrekla: canonical solution to this problem is a mixer that receives \dirty" Bitcoins from
kakobrekla: many users, routes them all through a single mixing address, and dispenses them
kakobrekla: back out to new \clean" output addresses in a random order, or at random times.
kakobrekla: hmm, i wonder if i seen this before?
asciilifeform: 'the Management Engine... is a separate microcontroller embedded in the PCH and has a full network stack, has access to DMA and other nasty things. The firmware is signed by Intel and verified at each boot by the microcontroller, and if the firmware signature fails to verify correctly, the x86 cpu will not be allowed to boot... We must get that freed by Intel' << lol!!!

asciilifeform: 'So, sure, it's pure to build without the microcode blob, which means in reality that you're deciding to use the microcode blob *already embedded in the CPU*. And, on many new CPUs, the one that comes with the CPU has issues that mean you won't get past DRAM init. And, if you do get past DRAM init and boot, you've got a CPU that may have subtle errors and corrupt memory.' << this is an interesting and little-known fact
asciilifeform: which i have verified personally
asciilifeform: ever wonder how intel sells to both usg and plebes ?
asciilifeform: supposedly the same items
asciilifeform: in reality - not at all the same.
asciilifeform: (for those unfamiliar with the subject, 'microcode' is best imagined as a kind of 'piano roll' of toggles which get flipped when a particular instruction is encountered by cpu. this in turn actually cranks the ALUs, pipeline stages, all the other familiar components.)
asciilifeform: 'Purism Installs TOR by Default' << l0l! cherry on the cake!

asciilifeform: just that it is being specifically pushed, with conscious malice, as 'auditable', 'open', and even 'resistant to supply chain attacks'
dignork: well, grassroots naive engineering, they asume doing minimal amount of integration work ona product, makes it 'open' 'free' etc.
dignork: in fact they are right - their work indeed might be both free and open.
asciilifeform: the fundamental confusion is, as always, between effort and product.
