Can GROKLAW Return To Its Former Glory?

“he’s relaunching Lavabit with a new architecture that fixes the SSL problem and includes other privacy-enhancing features as well, such as one that obscures the metadata on emails to prevent government agencies like the NSA and FBI from being able to find out with whom Lavabit users communicate. He’s also announcing plans to roll out end-to-end encryption later this year, which would give users an even more secure way to send email.
The new service addresses what has become a major fault line between tech companies and the government: the ability to demand backdoor access to customer data.”

I may be old and way past my prime but I can still connect the dots:

  • 2013 – PJ discontinued work on GROKLAW because the USAian government was pestering e-mail providers for users’ data, citing LavaBit’s decision to close.
  • 2017 – LavaBit re-emerges with new technology that eliminates the threat.

No doubt PJ has moved on but could GROKLAW make a comeback in 2017? No doubt there will be lots of interesting litigation in the global fight against Trumpism. Come back, PJ. We need you.

    GROKLAW is not solely about FLOSS. It’s about interesting legal proceedings. Trumpism should be a gold mine for those of us interested in legal niceties and courts. Trumpism is a scam two orders of magnitude more important than SCOG v World. It would be great to have GROKLAW revitalized and covering the fallout of all the court cases surrounding Trump and now his family. He’s dragged all of them to the edge of legal perdition. This episode could sponsor a revised constitution requiring POTUS to follow the same rules as ordinary citizens working for the people. Even GOPs should go for that. Otherwise USA will forever have organized criminals running the show. No one else will have the money to run nor the $billions in loot to gain from ripping off USAian taxpayers through corruption of government. Trump makes all the petty corruption we’ve seen seem trivial by comparison. Trump is taking over the country without having to buy it.

    Damn, you going to dig up that SCO shit again?

    “On March 1, 2016, SCO’s lawsuit against IBM was dismissed”

    Why beat a dead horse? PJ’s time is better served elsewhere.
