I need your help.
I wrote a lengthy and technical blog post in which I describe an idea I have for a distributed system to verify content on websites.
TLDR: servers with cryptographically-signed hashes verify content and notify website owners if said content is changed.
Am I missing obvious flaws? Has this problem already been solved?
Please do let me know if this would be worth the effort.
Rediscovering the Small Web
"Today's web is mostly commercial. The smaller web of individuals has neither the resources nor the will to compete for visibility and audience the way the commercial web does"
Another great post by @neustadt - welcome to Mastodon by the way, a part of the new small web!
"Google no longer providing original URL in AMP for image search results"
Time to share this one again before it's too late:
How to fight back against Google AMP https://markosaric.com/google-amp/
@yarmo Microsoft loves free labour, domination of technology and control over developers. That's why Microsoft "loves open source".
Microsoft as an entity does not love user control, privacy and transparency, which is why it still does not and never will "love free software".
They at least want to own the means by which it is produced. They've seen what Google can do with WebM/P, HTTP/2/Quic, GoLang, BoringSSL and (most importantly) Blink. They want to do that. They want to be relied upon, to be the banner carrier for various open source projects.
They've likely realized, a little late, that Windows is not going to fit future devices and workflows as-is. They're doing what any smart company would do: diversify and try to own or control.
Microsoft ❤️ Open Source 🙄
I need this.
This. This post encapsulates the whole ethos behind #100DaysToOffload for me.
@yarmo didn’t finish, but got a lot out of the challenge. By his own admission it has improved his blog and increased his desire to write again.
Mission accomplished. Nice work, Yarmo.
He has high hopes for this project (as do I), any webdevs out there want to jump in and help?
Link to the project:
Tentons ça :
#JeChercheUnJob dans la science des données [big, open].
Je souhaite travailler à temps partiel et pouvoir #télétravailler au maximum.
Surtout, je souhaite trouver une entreprise, scop, asso en accord avec certaines "valeurs" : respect de la vie privée, logiciel libre...
J'suis pas (trop) pressée, mais j'aimerais bien croire que c'est possible.
Hello mastodon friends.
I've read a couple of posts on social media recently about blog discovery being broken. I see these every now and again, but this time I thought I would try to do something to help.
If you have time, please take a look at https://dev.upvote.blog
The site is in development & I'm still working on it, but you can test it out. Would it be useful, or am I wasting my time?
Comments, criticism etc appreciated.
