Revealing Passwords

Fri, 17 May 2019
It’s evening in the cellblock. Things are fairly quiet. It was a long day. Many had visits from their lawyers, a few got released; mos of them finished their sentence on Thursday, but Friday was a holiday and due to the slow administration, they only got...

Compartmentalization

Fri, 17 May 2019
Most of the time we are between 80 and 90 prisoners in my cellblock. Around half of those are always sick. Part of that is bad sanitation, we have little clean water, but mostly it’s because we are a lot of people crammed together in one small space. This...

The Future of IT Security in Ecuador

Tue, 14 May 2019
I’m tired. Sleep deprived. Prison is much louder than I could ever imagine. And add to that sleeping on the floor, in a small room with 6 other inmates, getting rest is a significant challenge. I’ve been thinking about my situation and the case against me...

Power

Mon, 13 May 2019

Cypherpunks

Mon, 13 May 2019
El Inca is a prison that contains all kinds of people. People who didn’t pay alimony, people who committed fraud, recreational drug users, drug traffickers, murderers – and me - . One thing that surprised me a lot when I came here was how important...

The Books I Read in Prison

Mon, 13 May 2019
In this prison there are not many books. There are a few Bibles and a copy of Ben Hur in my cell block. But that’s it. I’ve seen a library when entering the prison, but I never see people there, or with new books. No one seems to know or care. This is a...

Statement for Cryptorave

Sat, 04 May 2019
As they dared, we too shall dare. Even though we have all to loose, as any other Latin American citizen that goes against what power wants. But they dared against us, the people. They dared to incarcerate whomever and whenever they want without any...

Why Ecuador?

Thu, 02 May 2019
Two weeks. Prison here in Ecuador is a maddening mix of long stretches of isolation and boredom interspersed with random threats and acts of violence. Today was a break in the structure: visitation day. You can receive max 2 visitors for 3 hours. Two of...

The most important thing

Tue, 23 Apr 2019
I'm sitting in prison- I'm in my cell. It's dark, someone took all the light bulbs in the cells. So, I'm sitting close to the door, so the light from the corridor outside can allow me to see what I'm writing. I've been here a week, but it feels longer. In...
