Durand commented on Rythyrix's post: @Talnicrom who made it has not been on ZeroMe in a while. They might be back but until then we need to reverse engineer what they did to sort out ZeroMe+. I'm working on it, but since I'm not fluent in Coffeescript, it's taking some effort!

Durand commented on Martinv's post: @Martinv: I'm trying to resurrect ZeroMePlus. Unfortunately @Talnicrom didn't save the coffee files with the source so it's a bit of a pain to port it to the newest ZeroMe... :/
Durand commented on Martinv's post: You can use [ZeroMePlus](/1Lj1oPcN7oZQL8HkS5KbkzQuKqs42zQWY6) to block them, but ZeroMePlus hasn't been updated in a while so it's not perfect.
Durand commented on Durand's post: Wait, nevermind. It works now with --debug. The problem was that I used /usr/bin/coffee rather than just coffee in the argument list.
Durand commented on Durand's post: @Nofish: Thanks, that worked.. but how do I generate all.js?
Durand commented on Martinv's post: @Movax: Good thoughts there. Proof of works seems like the only real solution we have so far... I'm a little surprised that ZeroNet hasn't already been destroyed by spammers! I'm not sure if it is possible to "not trust new accounts" because the data is transferred to peers regardless of whether it is spam or not. It would be better if we could block spam before it is distributed, rather than after. Proof of work for new account creation might actually work, if it is, say ~30s long, and continuously improved over time...

Durand commented on Eibriel's post: Curious to see how this goes... I'm cautiously optimistic about the programme.
Durand commented on Martinv's post: @Martinv: Well, we could train a neural network to identify what is spam and what isn't. ZeroNetPlus has a spam tagger, for example which you could probably use to train the spam detection algorithm, as long as people flag what is spam and what isn't. There might even be o/s spam detection libraries available... Another thing that is effectively spam is comments in languages you don't understand. It would be great if a little bit of javascript tagged a comment as one language or another so users could filter out what they don't understand.

Durand commented on Martinv's post: @Firebox: You have to enable the nvidia card before enabling prime. In nvidia-settings, you need to set it to Performance mode under PRIME profiles. It means that your laptop will always use discrete graphics which might not be ideal for you but it does work.

Durand commented on Durand's post: @Flyman: So how do you transfer data to it? Viruses can be transmitted through usb too..
Durand commented on Durand's post: @Eibriel: I realise that but considering how people just randomly click on links on ZeroNet, there's also the possibility that they will accidentally distribute RansomWare. It's only a matter of time before we get people hijacking popular zeronet sites to distribute viruses, spread spam and create DDOS attacks. I use linux so I don't really worry about getting ransomware but I do worry about accidentally spreading it to other people! @Flyman: If you use Windows, you should definitely get antivirus. Even MS' own anti-virus is good enough these days. But for ransomware, I think the best solution is actually just to keep backups of your data because you wouldn't want to pay money to someone to get your files back!

Durand commented on ulrichard's post: I actually discovered that using `baseurl = ""` messes up things like opengraph and twitter cards. If you don't care about them, then it's fine but if you do, it's better to add one.
Durand commented on ulrichard's post: @ulrichard: Yeah, I think it's a problem with ZeroNet. I actually have a similar problem with disqus comments. If you check your error console, you get something like this: > Uncaught DOMException: Failed to read the 'cookie' property from 'Document': The document is sandboxed and lacks the 'allow-same-origin' flag. > at Function.$.cookie That's because the site is in a sandboxed iframe. I'm not sure how to fix it right now but I'm sure there's a solution. For some reason, your site isn't updating for me anymore. Perhaps you turned off your computer?
Durand commented on ulrichard's post: I use hugo as well. It's pretty great :) Your relative urls are bad. That's probably why it doesn't work. For example, you have urls like this: > <link href="/1ParaEza5Ew5ioT5c8zR2wSSvArqiSQbpT/1ParaEza5Ew5ioT5c8zR2wSSvArqiSQbpT/css/custom.css" rel="stylesheet"> Note the extra 1ParaEza5Ew5ioT5c8zR2wSSvArqiSQbpT/ Instead of using a baseURL, I make all the links relative by adding these two lines to the site config. > baseurl = "" > relativeurls = true Then I can use the same generated site with both github pages and zeronet with no tweaks :) I have a sample site here that you can see: [dldx.bit](http://127.0.0.1:43110/dldx.bit) with source [code here](https://github.com/dldx/hpstr-hugo-theme).
Durand commented on Durand's post: @Planteater: The Brexit vote has left me pretty pissed off about direct democracy. I'm not sure that I want ignorant people deciding on things they don't know about. For example, I have no idea about farming or fishing and don't want to decide on laws about it. However, I at least know that I don't know much about it. There are plenty of people who think they are experts in economics/immigration/foreign policy despite having not studied them at all. These people would rather vote for irrational policies than delegate their votes. Democracy is a fine line and our current system is bad but that doesn't mean that we have to completely change it for something equally bad.

Durand commented on Durand's post: @Planteater: In the US, there are many working-class Republicans who vote to lower taxes on the rich (which in turn means that more revenue comes from the working classes like themselves because government spending has never been reduced).

I think they're being prayed upon due to their mistrust of other races and their economic insecurity but I don't see any valid reasons to vote Republican as a poor person..

Still don't quite understand how formally verified code works :S On another code, it's quite scary that there are military drones and self driving cars out there that are internet connected and have software that most likely contains bugs of some kind. Cars and drones are two things that can kill people and I'm pretty sure that companies like Tesla don't spend adequate amounts of money on security audits.

Durand commented on Flyman's post: @Ulrichard: Ah, I'm not sure. I've only ever had mobi DRM files from Amazon and they were a pain. I think the DRMs on epubs is usually easier to break though. I really hate the fact that I paid £10 for a book and can't even lend it to my friends.
Durand commented on Flyman's post: @Ulrichard: What do you mean? DRM and open formats are two different things. You can have DRM on an open format like PDF or MP4. That doesn't make them not open or bad for the jobs they were designed for. Epub is designed for reflowing text on e-ink readers and for that, it does an amazing job.
Durand commented on Elspru's post: @tkarita: It's a good idea but I would totally recommend *against* automatically seeding every new site on that list. You don't know what you're sharing with other people..
Durand commented on Musickiller's post: What problem do you have?
Durand commented on Flyman's post: epub is actually a very standardised format for ebooks. Much better than pdfs for most books because the text reflows automatically.
Durand commented on Durand's post: @Talnicrom: I was planning on using github pages to host my clear net site. I'd rather not host a full zeronet proxy but I had a similar idea to you where there was a bridge to create a new zeroid profile to comment with (perhaps even using OAuth) and whenever someone comments, a little program runs in the background to update the relevant users.json file. If the person wanted, they could get access to the private key of their user id to directly comment via zeronet. Otherwise, they'd be able to comment via my proxy. The only problem with this system is that I would have access to the zeroid private key myself - although I suppose that's not much different from using disqus or a similar system.
Durand commented on Shift's post: @Shift: If you really want to import your tweets, it is very easy to add that feature with a little bit of javascript .

Durand commented on Talnicrom's post: Honestly, the moment you expect someone to run their own server on a computer is the moment you lose users. I consider myself to be very technically minded and I think expecting users to have a server always running is absurd. The only reason I have one is because I bought a Pi recently and zeronet works well on it but we shouldn't expect everyone to have to firstly download and app, secondly get a pi, then configure it to work on their network, and then connect to it every time they want to use zeronet. What about when someone is outside their network? They'd have to expose their server to the internet, with all the additional security risks associated. People are tending towards mobile-only solutions. Fewer and fewer people are buying laptops. Where do you expect them to host zeronet? This is not a good strategy.
Durand started following Talnicrom
Durand commented on Talnicrom's post: @Talnicrom: Hmm.. I think this would still be possible by using a "proxy peer". You publish to it and that peer takes care of forwarding it on to the rest of the network. Since the file is already signed by you, it should be secure.
Durand commented on Talnicrom's post: You could do a leech-only zeronet client for mobiles. I think that would be quick enough and light enough to run on phones without any problems. In fact, as it is written in python, it could probably already run on android with a few tweaks.

Durand commented on weakish's post: @weakish: So you're saying that there should be stricter standards for comments? I'm not really sure I understand what the problem is :/ As for natural languages, I think that's part of the beauty of language, that we have many variations. It makes it harder to process, sure, but it is inevitable when there are no strict rules.
Durand commented on weakish's post: @<tkarita/>: I definitely agree with that. Actually, I wonder if there's research done to calculate readability by programming language. I couldn't find much available online for some reason.
Durand commented on weakish's post: @<tkarita/>: I think the fact that many projects require strict formatting standards on C code points to the problem of readability in C. It is nice that code formatters are available but I would argue that they are more necessary in C, than in python. And if you're talking about code snippets in python, I think most IDEs handle that quite well. I use snippets in Vim and Atom, both don't really have a problem with Python.. I don't understand why delimiters are more readable than indentation. To me, enforced indentation is a way to be certain of which scope you're in. With braces, you have to trace every brace until you find which level you're in. Seems rather inefficient.
Durand commented on weakish's post: I don't really see what's lost by forcing a formatting style. It definitely does improve readability - anyone who's read python code vs C code would agree.. I don't understand why auto-formatting isn't possible.

The Trials of A Jester

Taken in the beautiful Palazzo Ducale on Piazza San Marco in Venice. I was bored one evening and decided to revitalise some of my old photographs with a touch of film emulation. I loved the statue itself but felt that the colour/standard b&w version was a bit lacking in impact. Most of the work was in Rawtherapee, with film noise and basic retouching in The Gimp!

Decentralised machine learning for data privacy?

There are plenty of benefits to be gained from machine learning but most techniques require a large amount of data. For example, automatic tagging of photographs is one simple but useful feature but this requires a large dataset of images.

We also live in a world where surveillance is a big problem, and as we give up our data to big corporations, this only gets worse. It would be wise to not allow governments and large corporations to have access to so much data without our explicit consent. To solve these two problems, I've been thinking about an alternative solution.

Would it be possible to create a framework whereby the training of algorithms occur on small sets of data and only the end results are aggregated on a large scale in a desynchronised, decentralised fashion?

For example, let's take face tagging. The current method of tagging used by Facebook involves looking at all the photographs uploaded by users that have been manually tagged and then training their facial recognition algorithm on this large data set. This requires that we give facebook unencrypted photographs to be stored on their servers, as well as a large database of all the facial tags that we manually added to said photographs. This is a huge privacy hazard.

The alternative: each user encrypts photographs before storing them on facebook's servers. The only people who can see them would be your friends who have keys to the photographs. When you or your friends tag photographs, client-side software on either your phone or your computer uses those tags to train a facial tagging algorithm about the photographs. The results of this training are then uploaded to a server, where they are then collated with other people's results. The final, master algorithm is then used by everyone for auto-tagging of photographs, run locally on the user's computer or phone.

This alternative strategy reduces the need to open up data to big companies, while we still get the benefits of big data. If users don't want to train data on their own phones/computers, they could have the option of uploading their unencrypted photos to facebook (or another trusted server), at their own risk.

I would love to know what you guys & gals think about this idea. Is it technically feasible? Is it even sensible? This is something that we need in the zeronet world!

Facepalm · facepalm@zeroid.biton Dec 07, 2016Reply

As you know, ordinarily when you encrypt data it becomes useless for ML. But there are new structure-preserving encryption schemes allow machine learning algorithms to learn things even though blind to the raw data called homomorphic encryption schemes which allows for mathematical operations like multiplication on cyphertext (in other words, they preserve the data structure). Since machine learning algorithms only care about structure, this breakthrough means you can run machine learning algorithms on encrypted data.

I want use usb just for copying files, I do not want some "indexes", "recycle bins", e.t.c., so at first I deleted it, then I was tired of doing that and did same thing I told about autorun.inf-viruses - where OS creates folder and makes garbage inside I create file with same name (including [dot] and [extention]), where OS creates a file, I create a folder.

@Eibriel: I realise that but considering how people just randomly click on links on ZeroNet, there's also the possibility that they will accidentally distribute RansomWare. It's only a matter of time before we get people hijacking popular zeronet sites to distribute viruses, spread spam and create DDOS attacks. I use linux so I don't really worry about getting ransomware but I do worry about accidentally spreading it to other people!

@Flyman: If you use Windows, you should definitely get antivirus. Even MS' own anti-virus is good enough these days. But for ransomware, I think the best solution is actually just to keep backups of your data because you wouldn't want to pay money to someone to get your files back!

In light of recent events, here's something I wrote a few weeks ago.

If you think the current refugee crisis in Europe is bad with barely a few million people, in the next twenty years, over a billion people will be forced to leave their homes in search of food and fresh water.

There are hundreds of millions of people presently living in delicate ecosystems, where fresh water is scarce and food security is non-existent. In California, for example, drought will become an increasingly severe problem (it already has water shortages). 200 million people depend on glacial meltwater for survival. 600 million people live near the coast and will have to migrate to higher land when flood defences get too expensive. 1 billion people around the globe rely on coral reefs for food, many of which are dead or dying. Climate Change is the #1 threat to national security, according to the US Department of Defense due to all the conflict it would trigger.

We think of climate change as a one-dimensional issue, of the world becoming warmer and sea levels rising. But the reality is so much more complicated than that. What about fossilised diseases frozen in the Arctic melting? Or mosquitos increasing in range and spreading deadly infections (eg. Zika)? Or trapped methane in the permafrost escaping and causing runaway global warming with a 6-degree rise in average temperatures? Humans have never lived in a world of more than a 2-degree rise. How will we cope with this? How will we cope with 2/3 of all wildlife going extinct by 2020? Or extreme wildfires and hurricanes? In the UK, we can barely handle a flood or two a year and it's going to get much worse if we don't change our behaviour.

We first discovered climate change and the greenhouse effect 120 years ago in 1896. Since then we've debated the science and gone into denial. Instead of throwing away that packet of cigarettes when doctors told us that they will kill us, we've decided to attach them directly to our lungs and double down. We'd rather debate about where to build walls and how many refugees to keep out than about how to protect our only home for our children and grandchildren.

As it stands right now, there are clear solutions that we can take. We can push for cheap renewable and nuclear energy and stop subsidising coal and gas companies. We can reduce how much meat (especially beef) we eat and how much we drive and fly. And we can support a price on carbon that will adequately price the damages we do to our planet, which allows our economy to invest in clean energy. The best part is that this is all far cheaper that having to deal with the devastation that climate change will bring! We really, really need to start now.

@Planteater: The Brexit vote has left me pretty pissed off about direct democracy. I'm not sure that I want ignorant people deciding on things they don't know about. For example, I have no idea about farming or fishing and don't want to decide on laws about it. However, I at least know that I don't know much about it. There are plenty of people who think they are experts in economics/immigration/foreign policy despite having not studied them at all. These people would rather vote for irrational policies than delegate their votes. Democracy is a fine line and our current system is bad but that doesn't mean that we have to completely change it for something equally bad.

Planteater · planteater@zeroid.biton Oct 19, 2016Reply

@Durand: That's true as far as it goes, however you have to look at their choices. Each party (or even candidate) has a bundle of policies. Our system forces people to chose among the bundles even if all of them have negative aspects. Candidates who want to reduce government spending (rather than move it around) do not exist. The choice is always a difficult compromise, however it is a leap to say it is irrational. I don't presume to know what other people value and I certainly don't want to force them to value what I value. Maybe some people vote republican simply because they feel republican politicians are less likely to change their lives in ways they really care about. Don't assume that people would rather have more money and less religion, tighter ATF enforcement, or whatever.

Durand · dldx@zeroid.biton Oct 18, 2016Reply

@Planteater: In the US, there are many working-class Republicans who vote to lower taxes on the rich (which in turn means that more revenue comes from the working classes like themselves because government spending has never been reduced). This doesn't make any sense. I think they're being prayed upon due to their mistrust of other races and their economic insecurity but I don't see any valid reasons to vote Republican as a poor person..

Planteater · planteater@zeroid.biton Oct 18, 2016Reply

@ks: People usually say that voters vote against self-interest without understanding what people actually want. In the US, people accuse rural voters of voting against self interest for various reasons. For one thing, rural voters tend to reject progressive policy positions. However, in order to do so they must support republicans, who hurt them in different ways than democrats. I don't think that ignorance captures the reason for this trade-off. On the other hand, people in the US tend to be ignorant about political theory beyond the American model. Plato's critique seems especially forceful this election cycle. Democracy can be very oppressive. On the other hand, our society is likely at the point where we could live in a peaceful and prosperous anarchy.

Democracy is socialism, therefore it will never work out.

@Talnicrom: I was planning on using github pages to host my clear net site. I'd rather not host a full zeronet proxy but I had a similar idea to you where there was a bridge to create a new zeroid profile to comment with (perhaps even using OAuth) and whenever someone comments, a little program runs in the background to update the relevant users.json file. If the person wanted, they could get access to the private key of their user id to directly comment via zeronet. Otherwise, they'd be able to comment via my proxy. The only problem with this system is that I would have access to the zeroid private key myself - although I suppose that's not much different from using disqus or a similar system.

Talnicrom · talnicrom@zeroid.biton Sep 21, 2016Reply

If you don't care about being visible to the clearnet (except through a proxy service), one solution would be to use the merger site feature. Set up a merger type such as "CommentLayer". (You could probably even use "ZeroMe" if you want.) Then write a code snippet that asks for permission to merge with CommentLayer, then displays existing comments, a box for a new comment, etc. Users can include this code snippet on their ZeroNet site. I guess you could even run a clearnet site with the express purpose of displaying the comments in CommentLayer.

@Durand: there is a Javascript library called sandblaster that can detect and possibly break out of iframes.

@Kopykate: yeah, that's the reason it doesn't work. JS security :/ I guess there's no way to break out of the iframe either.

Don't they give you an HTML code that you can embed on your site?

If so, have you tried doing so on a ZeroNet site? Did it work?

If it didn't work, it's most likely due to the fact that ZeroNet uses iFrames in order to render pages, and iframes come with all sorts of trouble. Lots of applications simply fail to work if they are loaded within iframes, due to javascript security features.

Does anyone else have this problem when deleting a site?

Internal error: AttributeError: 'Site' object has no attribute 'site'

D'oh. Sorry, I thought I already checked if I was up to date! It works now :) Thanks @nofish!

It was fixed yesterday, please update your zeronet using the 3dot menu on zerohello > "Version 0.4.1..." menuitem

I guess this is going to be dominated by Hello spam for a while! :D
