Sorry, RSA, I'm just not buying it

Sorry, RSA, I'm just not buying it

I want to be extremely clear about three things. First, this is my personal opinion – insert full standard disclaimer. Second, this is not a condemnation of everyone at RSA, present and past. I assume most of them are pretty okay, and that the problem is confined to a few specific points in the company. However, “unknown problem people making major decisions at RSA” is a bit unwieldy, so I will just say RSA. Third, I'm not calling for a total boycott on RSA. I work almost literally across the street from them and I don’t want to get beat up by roving gangs of cryptographers at the local Chipotle.

RSA's denial published last night is utter codswallop that denies pretty much everything in the world except the actual allegations put forth by Reuters and hinted at for months by [other sources](http://li

View Thinking about 'meta' torrent file

Thinking about 'meta' torrent file format.

Let's say I've downloaded big file using torrent. Then add very small file and recreate new torrent file. Like subtitle.

Now two torrent files are totally different file to machine. Tracker and torrent client would treat them different torrent. Of course we don't need duplicate original data file for multi seeding. But seeders and leechers split by two torrent file. They don't know about they have exact same file. Torrent client and tracker cannot connect people for exact same data. We have split share pool for exact same file. It's not efficient. More seeders, more speed.

Let's say original torrent file is 1.torrent.

The Department of Better Technology is hiring a web developer to help us revolutionize the world of government IT.

The Department of Better Technology is hiring a web developer to help us revolutionize the world of government IT. @cjoh and I started this company after being embedded inside government and seeing first-hand the horrors of the technology that these folks have to use everyday. We worked on a project called RFP-EZ that made it super simple to view and bid on government contracts. It wasn't anything amazing -- just a simple Bootstrap site, but just by making this process easier to understand for web firms who don't specialize in government contracting, we were able to save the federal government an average of 30%.

potus + rfpez

Once our 6 month term was up, we knew that we had to keep working on the issue. We received a generous investment from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to bring this procurement experiment down to the local level of government, and

a simple git branching model

a simple git branching model (written in 2013)

This is a very simple git workflow. It (and variants) is in use by many people. I settled on it after using it very effectively at Athena. GitHub does something similar; Zach Holman mentioned it in this talk.

Update: Woah, thanks for all the attention. Didn't expect this simple rant to get popular.

Want to help Archive Team do a "panic grab" of a website, so that you can later upload it to the Internet Archive for inclusion in its WayBack Machine? Here's the code!
View gist:6202872

Want to grab a copy of your favorite website, using wget in the command line, and saving it in WARC format? Then this is the gist for you. Read on!

First, copy the following lines into a textfile, and edit them as needed. Then paste them into your command line and hit enter:

export USER_AGENT="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.20.25 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.4 Safari/533.20.27"
export FILES_AND_PATHS_TO_EXCLUDE="/path/to/ignore"
export WARC_NAME=""

Big list of http static server one-liners

Each of these commands will run an ad hoc http static server in your current (or specified) directory, available at http://localhost:8000. Use this power wisely.

Imagine you could control other devices with a simple JavaScript API, right from your browser.

Imagine you could convert all kind of things to all kind of different things, e.g. taking a screenshot of a dom element or converting another website to a screenshot. Forks & comments much appreciated! #nobackend #dreamcode
View convert_dreamcode.js
// convert a dom element to a PDF and download it
convert( $('.invoice') ).to( 'invoice.pdf' ).download()
// alternatively
download( convert( $('.invoice') ).to( 'invoice.pdf' ) )
// convert another website to a png and show it on the page
convert( '' ).toImage().then( $('.screenshots').append )
// attach a file to an email
You can’t perform that action at this time.
