Discreet Log #11: Integrating FFI processes with Android services

09 Jul 2021

In Discreet Log #9, Dan talked about how we use FFI to connect our Flutter frontend to our Go backend Cwtch library on both desktop and Android platforms. In the leadup to the release of the Cwtch Beta last week, we finished the Android service work mentioned in that post and are going to go over how it works in this week’s edition of Discreet Log!

3 Years of Open Privacy

11 Feb 2021

Three years ago, on February 11th 2018, we officially incorporated the Open Privacy Research Society. At that point in time I don’t think any of us had any idea how the following years would go.

2020 was difficult and challenging. The work outlined here is a fraction of what we had hoped to achieve. 2020 impacted our projects, our priorities, and our lives. That said, I think it represents some of the most important work we have done so far, and I am excited to push it as far as we can in 2021.

This work couldn’t exist without an active and amazing base of supporters, like you, who enable our mission - researching and developing privacy enhancing technologies focused on those people and communities that need them most.

To celebrate our 3rd year anniversary I would like to invite you to review some of the amazing work that you helped support in 2020 - and once again ask for your help and support to help us continue our mission in 2021.
