Anonymize Your Web Traffic with JanusPA -
Topic: Technology 11:38 am EST, Jan  1, 2009

The in-the-works Janus Privacy Adapter is, hands down, the coolest piece of networking hardware I’ve seen (via hackaday) all year. The so-called Privacy Adapter has two RJ45 ethernet jacks and is intended to be placed in-line between your computer and Internet connection. After plugged in and given around 60 seconds to fire up, it anonymizes your web traffic through your choice of the Tor network or OpenVPN.

In Bad Taste
Topic: Technology 11:34 pm EDT, May  4, 2006

Registries are close-mouthed about the number of domains that are refunded, but informed estimates from Bret Fausett, citing VeriSign’s Stratton Scavlos, and from Godaddy’s Bob Parsons say that it’s grown in recent months to be about 99% of them. That’s bad.

JPL video comparing frameworks that compete with J2EE: Rails, Zope(Plone), TurboGears and Django.

[ Very cool. I have used and am using TurboGears, but may try out Zope again on some of my small one-offs because it looks fast enough. -Dan ]

Brick storage, anyone?

I like my Porsche designed 250Gb drive.

But I may have to get these as well.

she noticed that many people had attached two or three monitors to their computers. They placed their applications on different screens - the e-mail far off on the right side, a Web browser on the left and their main work project right in the middle - so that each application was "glanceable." When the ding on their e-mail program went off, they could quickly peek over at their in-boxes to see what had arrived.

I am an ion window manager user (no overlapping windows). Last week, I picked up another LCD for my home machine. I totally agree with this usage pattern and sentiment. Overlapping windows don't make as much sense as people think they do.

It does if you want to use any IP tricks, such as IP multicast or RSVP. While some of these things have gone the way of the dodo, I have a sense that they might reappear. A glut of bandwidth caused them to fade into the background as a means of giving us quality service. But in a few years (a few short years, maybe 5), when every tivo and cell phone and xbox and refridgerator and car needs access to the network, particularly for things like streaming media, then you'll probably see a resurgence in using some of these techniques to lighten the load on the network.

I am still not sure that what you say is true. IP multicast can work, you just need smarter NAT routers. I was addressing more of the issue of point to point connections like VoIP, which needs to handle multiple connection points, disconnects, and inappropriate IP blocks. Full stop. To say "it wouldn't scale" or that that would be less efficient, or we need static routes for... is to miss the socio-economic demands for the technology. We are starting to understand how to make things like multicast work on fixed, stable routing networks. To imply that we need these limitations to make it work is to be forced into a compromise which would hold only until someone didn't like the tradeoff regarding accessibility, useability, administration, efficiency. Over the long term, technology enables not restricts; it does not dictate what we do or how we use it.

Besides, there is always IPv6 :)

I'm more interested in allocation of address space to these devices instead of domain names. These devices *must* have globally unique addresses. CIDR, NAT and other technologies that have slowed the consumption of IPv4 address won't help you here.

Sure they could. It just becomes a directory lookup, with roving physical addresses. Rather than give you my IP address, I give you a means of contacting me -- a phone number, a skype alias, whatever. When I establish a net connection, I register that location with my directory service, and that registration may be NAT:someopenport.

They have to have globally unique addresses, but the address space does not need to intersect with the other globally unique address spaces.

I think the new change is the policies of customer personalization.
Initially, Google just saved all their queries, probably with IP
address, but unless you are surfing from a very specific terminal,
they probably weren't interested in figuring out what you were
looking for. They were looking for what the popular queries were,
and making sure that those had good results.

And then they started setting cookies. Customer optional -- just
set your browser policy -- with the slight benefit that you could
have custom languages persist. Mostly, people just didn't notice.
That gave them customizations per IP-session

And now you can log in to Google. They've wanted this forever,
because now they can observe from multiple IPs, multiple browsers.
But evil?

I found it far more questionable that memestreams had to record
not only sessions but click throughs. While logged in. Had to, necessary evil, but as I used to point out to Bucy, he would never
put up with it for a site he didn't personally know the operators

Where is the evil? Search for "google evil" on your search engine
of choice. What you'll find is a growing sentiment that Google is

Google is the Evil Empire now not by actions but potential. Same
deal with Starbucks -- actually good corporate philosophies, but
too big, rich, powerful.
