Great chat today on the weekly video call. We stayed mostly on topic, too!
Some things we talked about, for anyone who missed it. I hope nobody minds that I’m sharing.
And here is the spam email that I recieved that I was going on about 😂
@email@example.com oh right geo blocks hahaha
Here it is https://hastebin.skyra.pw/ogisabenam.csharp
@firstname.lastname@example.org That’s so funny, what a bunch of morons 😅
@email@example.com What a genious! So kind of him to ask you for the money transfer. With all his superpower he easily could have just done it himself instead!
@firstname.lastname@example.org I asked GPT-3 to summarize and categorize the Email for you, here’s what it said:
Categorize this text:
This text is an email from a hacker who has gained access to the recipient’s devices and has been monitoring their internet activity. The hacker threatens to release embarrassing videos of the recipient if they do not pay a ransom of $1590 within 48 hours.
@email@example.com Who can join these calls? Very interesting
@firstname.lastname@example.org Anyone and everyone is welcome and invited! I post the call up every week. It’s normally scheduled to start at 5am every Saturday (UTC).
It’s just something I’ve been doing for quite a while now to bring together anyone from the Yarn.social / Twtxt community where we just have a good ‘ol fashioned Yarn about whatever and often also talk about upcoming features, interesting things that we’ve seen or have happened (like new spam bots that have joined my pod!) and how we can continue to improve the experience of the ecosystem at large as well as that of
yarnd (what every Yarn.social pod runs)
solid write-up. interested in the mfa chat. sat this one out as i fell asleep on my office floor after too many labour hours.
@email@example.com That is a fantastic thing that you have it open like that. I’m based in Lisbon, Portual that would be 6am… on Saturday :) Maybe those calls could be recorded and made available.
@firstname.lastname@example.org What is the encryption part about? Any place where I can read more about this?
@email@example.com Have a read of the original draft proposal, obviously this needs polishing and improving, especially since the creation of the Salty.im project, but hopefully this gives you a good sense of what we’re planning to build.
I also talked about it in a blog post Future of Yarn.social
