[10:08pm] Bosun: Any feedback on the draft "how to get endorsed" that requires action?
[10:08pm] Joe: jokeefe?
[10:09pm] jokeefe: I haven’t heard anything
[10:10pm] jokeefe: how does it look?
[10:10pm] Joe: It grants the US government to go after companies for encryption in the name of stopping child abuse. Thing is it goes way to far.
[10:11pm] jokeefe: Here is techdirt’s summary: https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20200305/13510544043/senators-hawley-feinstein-join-graham-blumenthal-announcing-bill-to-undermine-both-encryption-section-230.shtml

[10:13pm] Sayyida left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[10:13pm] Sayyida joined the chat room.
[10:14pm] Sayyida: kind of feel like this is a "patriot act" but instead of "terrorists" its "child abusers"
[10:14pm] Joe left the chat room. (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[10:15pm] Joe joined the chat room.
[10:15pm] Bosun: Child abusers need to give law enforcement their keys so the can incriminate themselves?
[10:15pm] jokeefe: with a layer of government backdoors to encryption
[10:15pm] jokeefe: not just child abusers
[10:16pm] Sayyida: that seems to be the prime excuse for it
[10:16pm] Bosun: Generally banning encryption is stupid.
[10:16pm] jokeefe: agreed
[10:16pm] Sayyida: same here
[10:17pm] Bosun: The people I did radio with. Would then ask me if I was pro child abuse.
[10:17pm] jokeefe: No, but we are pro-privacy for everyone.
[10:18pm] Bosun: Yes, and we need to reiterate that.
[10:18pm] Joe: Agreed
[10:19pm] jokeefe: Like with FOSTA, this law will likely make it harder to go after child abusers
[10:19pm] Sayyida: 10 min left gentlemen
[10:20pm] jokeefe: Do we want to oppose the EARN IT act?
[10:20pm] Bosun: I think it is relatively simple, a virus emergency should not be cover for taking away citizen's rights/
[10:21pm] Bosun: We want to appose restrictions on encryption. Back doors end up giving an entrance to Bothe white and black hats.
[10:23pm] Bosun: oppose.
