Have any lainons read Cypherpunks by Julian Assange? It was published back in 2012. It's not really a book since it's literally just conversations between him, Jacob Applebaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn, and Jérémie Zimmerman, but I still think it's interesting so far.

i think i listened to the audiobook of it but im not sure

  No.4397

I got it from the library (le ebin opsec fail xDDD v&) but didn't finish it.
I'm sure the ideas are good, but the conversational style, and thus telling you to fuarrrk off and read the site linked in the foot note if you don't know what a phrase or concept meant, was too annoying for me to finish.

Can't be worse than buying the book online. The conversation style is annoying but apparently Assange has another book called Underground, which I've never read, and it is an actual book. Right now I'm a third of the way done and it's funny to see the difference in approach from guys like Jérémie who want to work in the system and guys like Assange who are almost totally against the state.

The movie of this book is really good as well

I bought it and it's on my bookshelf but never finished it, it was disappointing overall but still worth skimming through.

I found This Machine Kills Secrets by Andy Greenberg to be a more informative read if you care less about opinions and more of the history.

The entire book is just a transcript of this conversation:

Yes I have a physical copy. It was an interesting reading.

Realy? Thought it was a let down tbh.
The cast were bland and hardly did it justice, considering how historic that case was.
If you liked that you'd probably enjoy that other oz based cybur thriller.
Its fiction, can't think of the name, but that officer from underground plays an aged overweight DPR tryhard.

am i the only one who finds it odd jacob appelbaum got all the accusations appear and then he dissapeared from the face of the earth and no one actually seemed to press any charges

is too obvious to be JTRIG?

he quit tor, but AFAIK he's still around. He's not in the limelight anymore. I recall seeing his face in a video of some cybersecurity conference, but he wasn't actually speaking. Or something. Really fuzzy memory there.

Not really. The truth of the matter was rather apparent from the reaction that occurred the moment Jacob called out a "former" CIA asset who had infiltrated the TOR project.

TOR is an "open-source intelligence gathering" project, Lain.

Just posting to let yall know that if this becomes another Jacob Appelbaum thread, it's getting locked. Take that discussion to /sec/ or another board which is more accommodating.

attached the book, so lains who don't already have a copy can discuss it. I might read it eventually
