HTTPS, Again – Should We Be Screaming About This?

Google's Site SSL Icon

This whole HTTPS and Google’s push to encrypt (or weaponize depending on your perspective) is back on people’s lips again. I’m a little late to the party of course, since I have been out of the country so many times in the last three months that blogging has been a distant thought. With all of this talk, I’m left to wonder if the uproar has any merit. You’ll remember, I’ve spoken about this before; actively discussing Dave Winer’s commonly cited reason why sites don’t need to move to SSL.

When Choice Is Not A Choice

A few days ago an article was written by Ryan Gavin on Microsoft’s official Windows Blog. As I was reading, I started feel somewhat uneasy, as if something was wrong with what I was reading. Someone from Microsoft was writing that choice is a good thing, and that we should choose to check out Internet Explorer 9 (IE9)? Really? Seriously, yes, go take a look for yourself. This is unusual in a number of ways, especially the “choice” of words. I really found myself more interested in what was missing from this article more than what was included.

There are no more results.
