It's past midnight on the east coast, but @GitxsanJt and I wanted to get you a story on the arrest of two hereditary chiefs tonight, because it signals a major escalation in the Wet'suwet'en crisis. A journalist also appears to have been arrested.

For the last few months I've been working on an exciting new tool called DANGERZONE. It lets you convert potentially malicious PDFs or office documents into PDFs that you know are safe. I'll be releasing it at @nullcon in Goa, India!
