The Troubling Trend Toward Secure HTTP

Mozilla Security Blog Logo

In a recent blog post, Mozilla (makers of the popular Firefox browser) plan to set a date by which non-encrypted [1] websites would see access to browser features gradually removed. While the details aren’t yet clear as to the timeframe, or exactly what features will be limited; but it’s a definite message that powerful players are pushing encryption on everyone. This trend of “encrypt everything” is becoming very troubling.

Commenting Systems Aren’t Broken, They’re Lame

Don't Read The Comments

With news of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Mozilla working together┬áto create a “audience engagement platform”[1], I was interested in this time-tested idea of how “broken” commenting systems are. Dave Winer is also talking about this, and as you might expect, I mostly disagree with him. The thing is, commenting systems are not broken, they just suck. We may currently have the best we can get from text-based system, but the work should be spent on making them suck less.

There are no more results.
