Python implementation for beginners

Bitcoin feeds -

Good day. A few weeks back I teamed up with a computer scientist from France who suggested that we\'ll start to work on our own Bitcoin client implementation. The main idea was to improve our understanding of the Bitcoin protocol through the process of constructing a mini SPV client that will allow users to view transactions and addresses on the Bitcoin blockchain – In the future we might add more features like keys management and transaction tools, and we\'re also thinking on more educational oriented additions as well. Since it is mostly an educational project, we\'ve decided to try and document it as much as possible. Our project is at its early stages and the pace of progress is somewhat slow, but I believe that what we wish to achieve already starts to show and you're more then welcome to have a look.

Our blog: http://zeltsinger.com/ Our project board on Trello: https://trello.com/b/y2aAx4VW/bitpy And the source code on Github: https://github.com/Shultzi/Bitpy

I will highly appreciate your feedbacks and suggestions! We really do hope that our project will help others to overcome the steep learning curve of Bitcoin codding.

UN Council: Seriously, Nations, Stop Switching Off the Internet!

Slashdot -

An anonymous reader writes: "The United Nations officially condemned the practice of countries shutting down access to the internet at a meeting of the Human Rights Council on Friday," reports the Register newspaper, saying Friday's resolution "effectively extends human rights held offline to the internet," including freedom of expression. "The resolution is a much-needed response to increased pressure on freedom of expression online in all parts of the world," said Thomas Hughes, Executive Director of Article 19, a long-standing British human rights group which had pushed for the resolution. "From impunity for the killings of bloggers to laws criminalizing legitimate dissent on social media, basic human rights principles are being disregarded to impose greater controls over the information we see and share online." Thirteen countries, including Russia and China, had unsuccessfully urged the deletion of the text guaranteeing internet access, and Article 19 says the new resolution even commits states to address "security concerns on the Internet in accordance with their obligations to protect freedom of expression, privacy and other human rights online." But they also called the resolution a missed opportunity to urge states to strengthen protections on anonymity and encryption, and to clarify the boundaries between state and private ICT actors.
