    The National Cyber Director Act was just passed by Congress as part of the NDAA which will create a "Cyber Czar". It's a disaster for internet privacy and freedom.

    The "Cyber Czar" position has an unspecified budget, and a department of at least 75 people who will be unelected bureaucrats that remain in power regardless of who is elected into office, and who will get to determine internet best practices. They will also likely be in charge of enforcing anti-encryption bills like "EARN IT" and "Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act" should they go through.

    Congressman Thomas Massie was the only person who pushed back against the bill. I chat with him about why it's a danger, and should be stopped.

    Tell your local representative you are against the NDAA because of the National Cyber Director Act, you're against the EARN IT Bill, and you're against the Authorized Access to Encrypted Data Act.

    War Against Encryption, and Those Fighting Against It

    War Against Encryption, and Those Fighting Against It

    My first livestream in 4 months, but this is a topic worth going live about.
    There are currently 2 bills in Congress that are trying to destroy privacy and freedom of speech on the internet.

    The “EARN IT” bill would have internet “best practices” determined by a commission, and the “Lawful access to encrypted data act” would put backdoors in all of your software and devices.

    Attorney General Bill Barr says the government should have access to everything, that “companies should not deliberately design their systems to preclude any form of access to content,”
    If a company’s system is private and doesn't have a back door, according to these laws they can be required to redesign their system.

    The “lawful access to encrypted data act” would create a chilling effect on society. When people know their actions and words are no longer private: They self-censor. They conform and live in fear. A surveilled society is a repressed society, and we are dangerously close to having every part of our lives observed.

    Officials like to say surveillance is for the “good of the nation”, but they mean the nation state, ie it helps the people in power keep their power. They don’t mean for the good of the citizens. In fact, weakening the privacy of every citizen makes us all much worse off.

    Luckily there are many people fighting this bill, including Crystal Rose, CEO of Sense chat, a private messaging platform.

    She shares what is most insidious about this bill, and what she's doing to fight it. If you’d like to help also, reach out to members of Congress to tell them to leave our digital security alone:

    At the Friedman Conference this year I chatted to Australian bitcoin podcaster Stephan Livera about why people who care about freedom should be more interested in cyptrocurrency. We talk about what makes bitcoin and other cryptos valuable, and easy ways to get started.

    Twitter Hack: It's Just the Beginning...

    Twitter Hack: It's Just the Beginning...

    Today Twitter was hacked, and thousands of high profile accounts began tweeting a bitcoin scam that amassed over $100k.

    What if instead of tweeting a scam, they decided to leak everyone's DMs? People share private things on twitter all the time, like credit card details, home addresses, nude photos.

    This hack is just the beginning of what is likely to become a crisis in digital identity management. Time to start using e2ee services for messaging instead. Protect yourself, because these platforms won't.

    Any crypto leftover after funding that scam, feel free to send some my way! All my addresses here:

    We Should All Have Something To Hide

    We Should All Have Something To Hide

    https://youtu.be/OKERFvGRrjs

    Saying you don’t mind surveillance because you have nothing to hide is like saying you don’t believe in freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. This was something Snowden said.

    The fact is, privacy is fundamental to the fabric of our society, and we should all be concerned when people threaten to take it away.

    Strong encryption is one of the most powerful tools we have for protecting our privacy. End-to-end encryption is particularly important.
    Currently there are 2 bills in congress in the USA that are trying to make end to end encryption illegal:
    There is the EARN IT bill which threatens crucial freedom of speech protections for online publishing platforms unless these platforms abide by “best practices” set forth by a very anti-encryption commission.
    And there is the “lawful access to online data” act, which would force back doors into all our encrypted devices and platforms.

    We need to stand up and fight against bad encryption laws before the balance of power tips irretrievably away from the individual.

Best way to keep up with Bitcoin and Crypto

Naomi and her guests is the way I like to get news about the latest events in Bitcoin and Crypto. The podcast bring much needed level headed analysis in an industry dominated by complex tech, animated hucksters, and cable news soundbites.
