Kalyan ChakravarthiThis looks more efficient.. somehow I was not convinced on the huge energy spend on computing block of a block chain. Makes no sense, while we can do See moremore efficient operations in centralised systems. If hashgraph can address these in efficiencies of block chain, while retaining all the benefits, that is something to lookout for!!
Daniel EichtenWell not very well researched. Again someone is mistakingly equalizing blockchain and bitcoin/ethereum. Yes the later two work by proof of work but that doesn't mean that other blockchain technologies need it.
robinson ✌️Hi friends! Sans Francisco is a little side project of mine - happy to answer questions. The goal of the project was simply to build a resource to help designers keep on doing what they do best.
Scott WilliamsLet’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. It is a service provided by the Internet SecuritySee more Research Group (ISRG).
We give people the digital certificates they need in order to enable HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for websites, for free, in the most user-friendly way we can. We do this because we want to create a more secure and privacy-respecting Web.
The key principles behind Let’s Encrypt are:
Free: Anyone who owns a domain name can use Let’s Encrypt to obtain a trusted certificate at zero cost.
Automatic: Software running on a web server can interact with Let’s Encrypt to painlessly obtain a certificate, securely configure it for use, and automatically take care of renewal.
Secure: Let’s Encrypt will serve as a platform for advancing TLS security best practices, both on the CA side and by helping site operators properly secure their servers.
Transparent: All certificates issued or revoked will be publicly recorded and available for anyone to inspect.
Open: The automatic issuance and renewal protocol will be published as an open standard that others can adopt.
Cooperative: Much like the underlying Internet protocols themselves, Let’s Encrypt is a joint effort to benefit the community, beyond the control of any one organization.
Andrew HolmanI was researching this a bit more and found a document online that would allow us to automate this process through our Azure account. Not sure of the cost yet, but it seems straightforward enough.
Chantelle OliverJehu I completely agree. I am gen-x but have always preferred digital. I read so much more so much more often than I ever did before the internet. AllSee more everyone does is read. I spent a decade in university reading fast because I had to and I can read very quickly and get everything. I think this skim perhaps applies to people who are not fully literate in the digital realm and just need to work on their reading skills.
JehuIn many ways, that is exactly my case, Chantelle, but something tells me that the 'skimming' that the article is hinting at is a sort of seeminglySee more undesirable "shallowness" that seems inherent to this immaterial medium (the screen). In many ways, a physical book implied a tangible transaction, a formal commitment in space and time and mindset to a specific kind of object whose "affordances" in many ways imposed certain interactions/modes of consumption: you needed to mechanically search, to place a separator, to feel the weight, to smell its pages, context switching was costly, etc.
The screen makes all of these operations trivial, and enables many others practically impossible in a material object; but it is also true that the potential ability to do this usually creates in us the illusion that we are exhausting the possibilities of the content much in the same way that people feel "smarter" simply because they are a Google search away from knowing virtually anything.
I believe the superficial consumption of the text reflects, at least partially, the modern demand for immediate gratification and the implicit expectation that insights should emerge out of the medium and be somehow exhausted by the multiple consumption modes/viewpoints enabled by the technology as they enter our brain.
It is the dialogue with the ideas that matters, and conversations, specially the good ones, happen at their own pace and, often times, rather slowly.
