hi, i'm trash cat (they/them) :blobcat:
(despite the name and blobcats, i am human)

i mostly talk about computers, especially privacy and cryptography. i like to make fun of cryptocurrencies (for obvious reasons).

i'm queer and hate capitalism, cops, soldiers, etc. :blobcatknife: :anarchy:

i'm also ridiculously hot, but i don't post selfies, so you'll just have to believe me on that one :blobcatevil:

new podcast episode! 

if trash cat tech chat is so good, how come there's no trash cat tech chat 2?

oh wait, there is! i just published the second episode of my privacy podcast! this one was recorded with @ear7h and talks about how the internet works, why it's insecure (because it wasn't designed with security in mind), and how we hack privacy and security onto it.

you're trapped on a deserted island and you can have one thing with you. what do you choose?

your phone, obviously. just turn on airplane mode and fly out of there.

i'm reading this mid-2000s sci-fi novel (the bar code tattoo by suzanne weyn) set in 2025. they use the expression "final level" to mean something is good, exciting, or awesome. like "cool".

i think we should all start saying that.

some other 2025 slang:

  • (someone is) "crashed" = in a bad position, "screwed"
  • (something) "crashes" = is bad, "sucks"
  • "banged out" = upset

bruce schneier is extremely quotable, but somehow no one ever brings up my favorite quote from him:

I've never sent or received a GIF in my life.

oh, you mean "do/i do/do in"?

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Megolm, is in fact, Megolm/Olm, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Megolm plus Olm. Megolm is not a deniable double-ratchet encryption protocol unto itself, but rather another crypto component of a fully functioning deniable encryption system made useful by the Olm deniability, forward secrecy and self-healing properties comprising a full off-the-record encryption protocol as defined by OTR.

cryptography story problems are like "alice wants to have a private conversation with bob."

math story problems are like "your cousin throckmorton has 80 watermelons."
