An exercise I’m in the process of completing is thinking about how we’d like to see the code for seattle organization grow and evolve in 2015. For reference, the document is beginning to taking shape and will live for posterity on the organization website. I’m really excited about the trajectory that the code for america… Continue reading Code for Seattle 2015
I started ip2country over the last few days, as a self contained npm module for determining the country of an IP address.
WebRTC continues to develop towards an evolving standard, requiring some additional leg work to use it in projects. In yet another attempt at bridging that gap, I’ve been working on maintaining an adapter lessening some of the deviation from standard in current browsers.
It currently fixes
- Response of format of getStats in Chrome
- Translation to ‘url’ from the standard ‘urls’ when configuration is passed to Firefox

Happy to see BladeDroid appear at APSys next month. BladeDroid is Ravi’s project to figure out how to translate user scripts (browser extensions) into Android and get users back in control of their Apps.

It was really cool to get a view into the largely international nature of the servers, get a sense of where… Continue reading Open Proxies
Work over the last month has largely focused on using freedom.js as a platform for server security. I’m very happy with the submission we made to OSDI yesterday describing that work.
I have ended up spending more time than I was expecting over that last few months struggling to figure out where I stand on how much of ones life should be public versus private. I’ve found myself being more private over the last year, somewhat to my dismay, and yet have felt increasingly uncomfortable being… Continue reading Public & Private
I took the next step on recommended security practices by upgrading to https-only, and enabling spdy on the server. Still don’t have optimal cipher strengths, which will require some additional algorithm preference tweaking.
