Some ways to use ZK-SNARKs for privacy

(Re) Introducing Jasper as a Command Bus

Issue #239



Have you heard, about the bird?
Last issue before the weekend, hope you all have a good one! I'm going to spend mine on another weekend project. There was something so novel and exciting about getting the last one live, that I just one to keep pumping them out. I think it's just really fun making something and (potentially) having other people use it. Every morning I wake up and check to see if someone has used the feedback tool for their own purposes (beyond testing it). Yesterday I got really excited because I thought someone had, but then realized it was just me, haha.
Regardless, even if no one uses it, the POTENTIAL is still there. On top of that, when you release something that's nowhere near perfect and realize that people didn't pick up pitchforks and torches to storm your castle with the aim of destroying your Frankenstein creation, launching the next thing feels a lot easier. It's a rush! I'd highly recommend it.
Along that same line, if you feel inspired to build something over a weekend and end up actually making it, or have recently made something, share it with me and I'll feature it in the newsletter (if you want)! Anyway, here's the issue.
PS. a couple of days ago I started a thread on the vim subreddit asking about commands/tricks that were game changers for people when they learned about them. There's some gold in there, and definitely worth checking out if you're into/considering using (n)vim.
