    I knew that these dots existed, but I had never bothered to really investigate utilizing them. This made it clear to me that I don’t really understand how to make, and pass around physical documents securely anymore. What are some techniques for doing so? Is ripping out the color cartridge, and converting to 1-bit bitmaps enough? Should we start restoring offset printing presses and making plates again?

    How do we launder physical documents effectively?

      if you’re going to do launder them digitally, you could use this: https://github.com/firstlookmedia/pdf-redact-tools/pull/23

        But how can I trust First Look, The Intercept’s parent company, after it was their blunder to begin with? :)

          hah! fair point. I overlooked the author of that repo. this seems to be a failure of proper understanding on both parties involved then, so I guess as a whistleblower you have to make the decision about who & whose tech you think you can trust - a very tricky thing.
