I've been sharing conspiracies on reddit longer than this sub has been around. I have a story to tell.

This story is mostly crafted from my own experiences, my conversations with some of the people involved, and the rest is my own guesswork as I try to fill in the gaps...so bear with me!
That's why I wanted to share with this community, which I've watched grow over the years. I remember posting about the death of Barry Jennings (who witnessed explosions in the WTC on 9/11) the day after it happened. This was before /conspiracy (or right around when it was formed), and I remember thinking "we really need a sub for conspiracies on reddit!"
And here we are, 12 years later and over 1.3 million subscribers...incredible!
My story starts with a young man. We'll call him Andrew.
Andrew grew up in the 90's in a coastal US town and quickly blossomed into a tech whiz at a young age.
He began building his own computers, and after a brief stint using Windows, he decided that Bill Gates was everything wrong with technology (and the world), and he made it his mission to make sure folks like Gates were NOT the future of computers.
He really believed that the use of technology was a fundamental human right, and that charging people for "proprietary" OS's that hid their source code was a violation of these rights.
He saw a possible Deus Ex-like future, with a technocracy literally around the corner if we didn't act now.
Andrew soon joined the Free Software Foundation and began rubbing elbows with the likes of Richard Stallman. He begun exclusively using GNU/Linux and was the type to correct you if you called it just "Linux". He also began visiting tech-savvy forums like slashdot and started networking in earnest.
By 2006 (his senior year of high school) Andrew was completely over his "education" and decided to just drop out completely.
Shockingly, a college accepted him anyway. A small East Coast school had been actively courting Andrew, and when they learned he had failed to get his HS diploma, they accepted him anyway!
Now sometime during this period Andrew went to Iceland and stayed in Reykjavik for several months.
This trip may have happened during the summer, fall, or early winter of 2006. The reason for his trip had something to do with his efforts in the FSF or similar group. The possible significance of this trip will become clear as we go on.
What is clear is that Andrew started college in the fall of 2006, and that the circumstances were unusual. Andrew soon met several like-minded individuals and began building a social and technological network at his school.
Two individuals in particular would become key players in his life (one more prominently in this story, but the other was significant as well), and eventually the 3 would live together in town for several years.
But for now let's stick with Andrew.
Andrew had an idea to build a social network for his college. Except, it wasn't just a network, it was a wiki for information about the school...and beyond. Soon, it began to morph into something much bigger in Andrew's mind.
He saw his project as being one of many data "hubs" for leaks of important documents and otherwise sensitive information.
So yeah, he saw the opportunity for a wiki for leaks (see where this is going yet...?).
As his ambitions grew, his behavior started to become increasingly erratic. He was caught with drugs and arrested. Strangely, the charges were pretty much dropped and he was given a slap on the wrist. Eventually he decided to leave the school, but still lived in town and had access to the servers on campus.
By 2010 Andrew was still living in the small town with his two "hacker" buddies, who were still enrolled at the school.
This house was in some ways legendary. It appears that many "interesting" people spent time at or visited the residence. Indeed, some of the early movers and shakers of /conspiracy itself passed through.
There was usually a full NO2 tank for anyone who was into that kinda thing, and they were stocked with every hallucinogen and research chemical known to man.
It was also likely under surveillance by multiple intelligence agencies (NSA/Mossad/etc).
Over time, the mental state of Andrew was slowly starting to deteriorate, which wasn't helped by his abuse of drugs.
Still, Andrew decided to move his base of operations to Europe, spending time in Belgium, the Czech Republic and elsewhere.
One of his housemates was soon to join him on his adventures in Europe and elsewhere abroad. We'll call him "Aaron."
Aaron had a very similar story and upbringing as Andrew. Aaron was also from a coastal US town and was born into privilege. He was also, supposedly, born into a family with some serious connections to intelligence agencies, including an uncle with ties to the NSA, and both parents connected to military brass.
By 2015, Andrew and Aaron were living together in the Czech Republic. During this time they were working directly and/or indirectly for the NSA (via Cisco and other companies).
You see, the "college" they met at was actually a front for the recruitment of kids into the IC. Apparently, many "schools" in the US function that way. Go figure.
Their intelligence and valuable skill set (hacking etc) made them valuable assets. They were also possibly involved with the distribution of certain "research chemicals" (of the 2C* variety) to dignitaries and their entourages (in one example, they provided 2CB to a group with David Cameron).
In addition, Andrew was allegedly involved with, or stumbled upon, an NSA-linked surveillance project directed at the entire country of Malaysia, while Aaron was involved with Cisco.
Aaron himself had gotten into hot water for releasing damaging information about the NSA, and even claimed to be an NSA whistleblower, and was also possibly the individual who leaked the 2014 (or 2015) Bilderberg meeting list.
And then things went bad. Andrew quit the Malaysia project and Aaron left Cisco. It seems Andrew and Aaron were "set up" during a fiery false flag event in the Czech Republic in 2015. It may have happened at an embassy, but it's unclear which. There is no information on the web about anything like this (afaik).
Aaron was immediately targeted and spent several years on the run. Allegedly, he was added to the list of victims in the so-called "Great Game".
The Great Game is the term used for an international assassination program where intelligence agencies share a list of targets to be neutralized. The German BND and Mossad are heavily involved, as other networks. Individuals targeted by the Great Game may be offed by actual assassins, or by NPC-like humans whose minds will be influenced by mind control tech (a la Matrix...say influencing someone to ram your car unwittingly ie).
As Aaron went on the lam, Andrew soon returned to the US, shell-shocked by his experience.
Both Andrew and Aaron continue to suffer from some sort of PTSD from these series of events, rendering Andrew largely incapacitated and Aaron scattered and discombobulated.
The Meat of the Matter
OK...where does that leave us? Why am I sharing all of this? I think there's much more to this story.
So let's start speculating! Everything I'm about to say is stuff that was told to me personally. I can't vouch for any of this information, though obviously I thought it was compelling enough to share.
Here's the gist: The so-called whistleblowers you see in the media are almost all fake.
This includes: Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Thomas Drake and William Binney (hey look, his AMA is pinned on this sub right now...no comment!). These individuals, and others, are controlled opposition. The real whistleblowers are severely punished.
For example, Bradley Manning was punished with chemical castration in jail. His "transformation" was chemically induced torture.
Andrew was not alone in his passion. There were lots of other young visionaries like him who dreamed of a freer and more transparent world.
In this story, Julian Assange was an intelligence asset...a psyop meant to steal the thunder from real activists like Andrew.
In this story, a small college-based "wiki" for government leaks was used as the model for an intelligence operation known as "wikileaks".
In this story, Andrew traveled to Iceland at some point in 2006.
When was Wikileaks founded? Wikileaks was founded by Julian Assange in December 2006, in Iceland.
Aaron discovered (legally, like Manning who had clearance to access all the data he leaked) damning information about surveillance happening by the NSA, specifically against recruits entering the US army and elsewhere.
In this story, the "Andrew" identity was co-opted and turned into "Julian Assange", and "Aaron" became "Edward Snowden".
Granted, there were probably other people that these whistleblower imposters were modeled after, but Andrew and Aaron seem like very strong contenders for some of this inspiration.
Now, much of the following may be gobbledygook (lol I spelled that right first try!) for all I know, but since I'm having a really hard time making sense of it all, I'll just include everything I can and let you guys run with it.
Here are some phrases, ideas, terms and people of note that may be involved with this story...MODS: None of this is doxing! All of the links of people are wikipedia pages or published interviews/articles. So yeah. Not dox!
I don't know how these terms, theories and individuals fit into this story, but that they may be somehow related.
Hopefully there are enough bread crumbs in here to keep some of you busy!
Any help/insight would be appreciated. I confess I'm not so tech-minded so I can't offer any more explanation about some of the more techy terms.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and thanks for continuing to stimulate after all these years! It's really nice to see this place continuing to thrive after all of this time!

14 Awesome NEW Quotes About Blockchain

The LUDUM team spent the last couple of nights poring over hundreds of famous and smart-thinking quotes on blockchain. Below is a collection of our 15 favorites.
Let us know which ones resonate with you the most, and feel free to counter any you disagree with. There are infinite views on what could happen in the future, here are fifteen famous ones for our “crypto-hodlers” in bad times to give them strength.
The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts Satoshi Nakamoto, Founder of Bitcoin ”Well, I think it is working. There may be other currencies like it that may be even better. But in the meantime, there’s a big industry around Bitcoin. — People have made fortunes off Bitcoin, some have lost money. It is volatile, but people make money off of volatility too. Virgin Galactic is a bold entrepreneurial technology. It’s driving a revolution. And bitcoin is doing just the same when it comes to inventing a new currency.” Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Galactic, and 400+ businesses “PayPal had these goals of creating a new currency. We failed at that, and we just created a new payment system. I think Bitcoin has succeeded on the level of a new currency, but the payment system is somewhat lacking. It’s very hard to use, and that’s the big challenge on the Bitcoin side.” Peter Thiel, Co-Founder of PayPal “The relative success of the bitcoin proves that money first and foremost depends on trust. Neither gold nor bonds are needed to back up a currency.” Arnon Grunberg, Writer “It’s gold for nerds.” –Stephen Colbert, Comedian, April 17, 2013 “We have elected to put our money and faith in a mathematical framework that is free of politics and human error.” Tyler Winklevoss, Co-creator of Facebook “There are 3 eras of currency: Commodity based, politically based, and now, math based.” Chris Dixon, Co-founder of Hunch now owned by eBay, Co-founder of SiteAdvisor now owned by McAfee “Trusted third parties are security holes.” Nick Szabo (inventor of Bit gold, a precursor to Bitcoin) “Cryptography shifts the balance of power from those with a monopoly on violence to those who comprehend mathematics and security design.” Jacob Appelbaum (activist and core member of the Tor project) “The biggest opportunity set we can think of over the next decade.” Bob Grifeld, CEO NASDAQ “Anything that can conceive of as a supply chain, blockchain can vastly improve its efficiency- it doesn’t matter if its people, numbers, data, money.”– Ginni Rometty, CEO IBM “Online identity and reputation will be decentralized. We will own the data that belongs to us.” William Mougayar, author The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology “The bitcoin transaction script language, called Script, is a Forth-like reverse-polish notation stack-based execution language. If that sounds like gibberish, you probably haven’t studied 1960s programming languages, but that’s ok.” Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Mastering Bitcoin: Programming the Open Blockchain “Bitcoin actually has the balance and incentives right, and that is why it is starting to take off” Julian Assange, Founder of Wikileaks
LUDUM is setting out to revolutionize first the lottery industry, then the entire gaming industry, by providing a global, social gaming experience based on the Stellar blockchain.

Today at Sevilla, Brad Templeton has talked about Ethereum on the Singularity University Summit!

This is huge, 900 attendees at the conference. Brad Templeton (@Bradtem) as one of the speakers.
Please have a look about Singularity University if you don´t know what it is. Their summits are one of the most important conference about technology, They have behind a really important Think Tank.
Maybe this help to encourage the Comms team of Ethereum, the project will get traction inviting (talking with) influencers as Jacob Appelbaum, Bruce Schneier, Wei Dai (unit inspiration), ThomasV (Electrum), Pieter Hintjens and even Linus Torvalds. Security experts to test the platform and receive their feedback. There is much to do. So excited for that.
On the other hand, as Vinay writes today at the blog, please don´t being rush to get Frontier. Security-driven is a must.
Looking forward, you guys are making history.
From who you would like to get feedback of the project? Please feel free to answer. I say.. Satoshi :)

Privacy on the Internet should be the rule, not the exception: let's fix this

While revealing at the 30c3 hacker conference what the NSA is capable of, Jacob Appelbaum said we have to fight global surveillance on two fronts: a political one and a technical one.
On the technical side we already have various solutions which make surveillance much harder, if not impossible. One of this solutions is PGP, a system for exchanging e-mail privately. However its usage is quite limited to tech-savvy people, since it requires a clear understanding of a series of not-so-easy concepts before being able to use it properly. This makes technical guarantees of privacy an exception to the rule for a strict elite of people, and not the standard for the average Internet user.
For this reason we designed Snake: an online social network which offers to its users end-to-end encrypted communications. Our software also guarantees anonymity of the data, which means that, in case of seizure, not only the contents of the messages is protected, but also the metadata such as who is the sender of a message or whether two users are friends or not.
Snake is easy to use and runs right in a web page, it doesn't require to install anything and all the encryption is done transparently. The experience for the user is similar to classical social networks except for a few minor things. Snake will also work as a basis for a series of other applications such as a privacy-aware online collaboration suite (like Google Docs), which is something has never been done properly before, to the best of our knowledge.
We developed a working prototype where we faced the most critical points, however to make this real, we need your help.
If you like our project here are some ways you can contribute:
If you want more info, take a look at our "Features" page, at the FAQ, at our blog or at the full design design document (~150 pages).
Edit: Special perk for redditors: if you write an e-mail to [email protected] saying hello and donate 53 €, you won't only receive a custom wallpaper, a supporter recognition on our website, a postcard and access to the closed beta in June, but also full access to the source code during development and some fantastic stikers!

Noisebridge needs your Bitcoin donations

NoiseBridge is an anarchist hackerspace in San Francisco co-founded by Mitch Altman of Virtual Reality Fame and Jacob Appelbaum of Tor and Wikileaks fame.
They are open to anyone 24/7 for free. They have free hardware and software classes. They run one of the biggest Tor exit nodes.
Noisebridge treasurer, Danny O'Brien, issued this message today stating they are in panic mode and are in danger of being shutdown by July.
You can donate Bitcoin to the address found on this page.
I came across NoiseBridge's plea for help via BoingBoing article "Save Noisebridge!" by Cory Doctorow

Where to host a tor exit node?

Jacob Appelbaum keeps saying how everyone should run a tor relay. I've always wanted to run a tor exit node. A tor relay does not have to be an exit node though. Anways tor has this page https://trac.torproject.org/projects/towiki/doc/GoodBadISPs on where to run an exit node. This info is pretty much old. How to find a tor exit node friendly hosting/dedicated/vps provider? Well open up the tor browser and whois the IP of the exit node you've been allocated.
Anways here is two very good providers for dedicated/vps servers where you can run an exit node: https://serverastra.com/ (They accept bitcoin, I've heard they are okay with it, but email them to be sure before running an exit node, most hosting providers have a policy of being able to change their terms of service/privacy policy without notifying you.) http://www.100tb.com/ (Had a chat with them attached is the screen shot) Here is a list of the cloudservers that 100tb offers with locations and test speeds: http://cloudtestfiles.net/
Before running a tor exit node, do your research, have a look at the possible implications (legal) and make sure you really want to do it. Otherwise I'd suggest just run a relay which is not that risky.
