Are you interested in how to bring secure, private, peer-to-peer distributable content to the fediverse that can survive nodes going down? I've finished writing the documentation for the #Spritely Golem demo which explains how to do just that:

It also includes a running, workable demo which you can try yourself. Please do and let me know your thoughts!

I added a new "Encryption has a shelf life" section to the Caveats section of #Spritely Golem's writeup. It's an important point I hadn't called out previously!

> Encryption has a shelf life. In general, secure ciphers from about 15 years ago aren’t secure today, so it’s possible that chunks that are currently only readable by intended recipients can eventually be read by anyone who gets their hands on them. [...]

This is also a concern with any of the "cryptography will save us!" stuff (including E2E)... yes, but with limits!

@cwebber indeed : it's in the end not a technical problem (it take x years to crack the cypher, with machines or... waiting) but a political one, where humans collectively have to ensure a structure of trust where they still can think and communicate ...
democracy won't be solved by technical trick, but yep, technology can be a tool to help and to think about it :D
