I can’t believe I haven’t posted in over a week. I guess the holidays were more time consuming than I expected, time does fly when you’re having fun! Anyways, even though I haven’t posted, I have been actively reading. There has been some interesting stuff coming out recently that I’m excited about.
One of the really interesting things is Unhosted. It is a new, new to me at least, paradigme in how web applications and web security is done. From the site “With our protocol, a website is only source code. Dynamic data is encrypted and decentralised, to per-user storage nodes. This benefits free software, as well as scalability, robustness, and online privacy.” Sounds pretty nifty, eh? I intend to follow the progress of Unhosted (I’m in the google group) and hopefully I can participate in the evolution of the protocol.
Another book I started (hopefully I finish this one) is “Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea”. It is very interesting and well written. I recommend it to anyone interested in math, history, and the crazy Pythagoras of anchient Greece.
