Specifically, DV and OV certs can now be issued for v3 onion addresses, whereas v2 onion address could only get EV certs.
This makes it easier for onion services to get certificates.
DV certs only require some kind of proof of ownership of the domain name. EV certs, on the other hand, require extra documentation and information about the owner as per guidelines voted on by CAs. They are also costly.
Wooo the ballot for allowing CAs to issue v3 onion certs passed: https://cabforum.org/pipermail/servercert-wg/2020-February/001663.html

"The structure of Hegel's secular Lutheranism in Marx's inversion places a great deal of value on the connection between what we do and what we see in the world. For Hegel, as a Lutheran, it is by faith, or good ideas, that we are saved. For Marx it is by labour, by work."

"The things (whether they be buildings or ideologies) that humans have built have no (intrinsic) value. What (extrinsic) value they have, generally, is due to the violence that frames and fills them. Value is the ability to hurt, punish, and ultimately preserve what exists."

Negation (also a core part of insurrectionary anarchism) acknowledges that we are incapable of shedding our current context in the creation of positive projects. Because we exist and are influenced and a part of (even though we are oppressed by) the current system, it will necessarily be reflected to some extent in anything new that we create.
Therefore, negation focuses on acts of destruction; dismantling and erasing the current system, as necessary to create something new.
To be honest, I'm coming from an anti-civ perspective in which any form of technological mediation between myself and others is undesirable, but the visual and technical similarities between mastodon and twitter alone are enough to motivate some serious questioning of what our desires actually are and whether we're stretching the benefits of decentralization and our capacity for repurposing technology too thin.
This brings us to the nihilist concept of negation.
Similarly, there are a lot of discussions on mastodon about the role a decentralized social networking sites and other services could play to maintain our current connections, data, and networks in the increasingly tenuous position that climate change is putting us in.
While I love the conversations I've had on this instance and others, there are several ways that mastodon forms a photo negative of and replicates structures that I find limiting and inimical to liberation.
The appelista inhabit.global project is a good example of this call for alternative infrastructure, and its climate change context in one in which I see a lot of similar projects being proposed and discussed. While decentralized variations of the Internet, such as mesh networks, are presented as options along with a future phase for "radically changing their use", the project comes off less as a critique of technology and more as a vanguardist attempt to own it for ourselves.
This same critique, and the idea of "photo negativity" can also be applied to increasingly popular Bookchin-style infrastructure projects. Alternative Internets that attempt to shed the chains of the capitalist, oppressive corporations and surveillance state actors of our time, still retain a lot of the structure of the original. These projects also often leave many ingrained premises we have on the desirability of such infrastructure and its impact unchallenged.
We read The Continuing Appeal of Nationalism last week for a reading group and I've been thinking a lot of how the insurrectionary concept of negation fits with Fredy's critique of nationalist (Maoist) movements.
In this piece, he describes these movements as forming a "photo negative" of the system that oppressed them, where a photo negative is very different from negation in that it retains all the structure of the original with the roles of the subjects simply reversed.
"the myth that between here and tomorrow is the hard work of people like you and me---of our progressive mission, and new & improved ideas---is a trap. It traps us into serving those who profit from all of this work, it traps us into believing in the work itself, it traps us in a bind of others' designs."
