When the going gets weird...

Thinker and Doer from Brooklyn, NYC. My Tumblr is for the fun things I find in this space. Sometimes it turns into a blog post on SeanBohan.com. Sometimes I push it to Twitter (@seanbohan) or my Facebook. I work at Mozilla and am focused on making the internet more awesome for users.

This weekend also brought allegations that Warner Bros. had hired Kevin Smith to write a fake screenplay for the 2016 tentpole Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the express intent of leaking it online as a decoy to draw spoiler-hunters away from any legitimate news. If that’s true, it’s a genius move: at the very least, an official-looking red-herring screenplay would cause enough confusion to prevent any genuine leaks from spreading too far.

God how I would love to start an agency focused entirely on False Flag operations. You can do whatever you want, and it is likely to be seen by more people than the signal it is masking.

Kevin, if you start this business, sign me up.

The Knight News Challenge is asking “How can we strengthen the internet for free expression and innovation?” They’re offering funding to help people develop solutions.

Screenshots above are from Briar, an app for “secure messaging, anywhere.”

We’re building a messaging app that’s as simple to use as WhatsApp, as secure as PGP, and that keeps working if somebody breaks the Internet.

Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate.

Unlike traditional messaging tools such as email, Twitter or Telegram, Briar doesn’t rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users’ devices. If the Internet’s down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the Internet’s up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance.

Go vote it up on the Knight Challenge to help them win funding and move into full public beta.

Disclosure: friends of mine. But also interesting in a lot of ways about building a proper decentralised internet - consider it #stactivism in action?

I think I’m allowed to tell you that Joseph Gordon-Levitt signed on as a producer for the ‘Sandman’ film, and I had a fantastic day spent with Joe talking ‘Sandman,’ and his knowledge and commitment to it impressed the hell out of me.
