Update: In addition to implementing miniLock in Python (below), I have since also implemented it in Go, the library and tool for which can be found in the go-minilock repository. It’s been over a year! I have written the occasional blogpost on indiebiotech.com in that time, but even that blog suffers.

If they have their way, then scarcely a decade after the first net-native generation emerged, the internet will be crippled and controlled by the people who stand to lose the most from true, informed democracy.
