-Staff? Who is going to pay them? Why should my taxes be wasted subsidising access to books for people who haven't saved and bought their own?
How many amazing things do we dismiss? What is our society missing out on?
I wrote something about why messages sometimes fail to decrypt on #matrix: https://blog.neko.dev/posts/unable-to-decrypt-matrix.html
It is still rough and will probably get reworked at some point, but I don't have the time for that rn, so that will have to wait. Maybe it is already interesting to you!
