HTML spec now on GitHub

Just a heads-up to those of you who like to follow the nitty gritty of spec development here: The HTML spec has joined the other WHATWG specs on GitHub, rather than being alone in the svn.whatwg.org SVN repository. This will enable other WHATWG editors to also contribute to the HTML spec, so you might get replies from Anne, Domenic, or Philip rather than just me.
Good news for followers like me, via Ian Hickson, editor of the HTML spec. This is 2015.

In theory this shouldn't really have any practical impact on anyone except them editors and those of you filing bugs, still tracked in the W3C Bugzilla.

Dancing the Mantra Ray

This is not a commercial, not a promotional post, but a personal recommendation.

OWASP Mantra is a must, if you are into app or web development , webmarketing or digital business ( formerly known as e-comm), or if you are a cat.

Mantra is a web application security testing framework built on top of a browser, free and open-source.

By having such a product, more people will come to know the easiness and flexibility of being able to follow basic testing procedures within the browser. Mantra believes that having such a portable, easy to use and yet powerful platform can be helpful for the industry.

Here below, a visual example taken from the desk of this yours truly:

Mantra does not need plugins or extensions. I like that. Sometimes it may be bore me the build-it-yourself culture the open-source industry widely spreads.

For professionals, Mantra comes with many built in tools to modify headers, manipulate input strings, replay GET/POST requests, edit cookies, quickly switch between multiple proxies, control forced redirects and all that matters. For aficionados too. For cats is suitable, if not ideal.

So if you ever dream of to take part of this industry, the web industry, do yourself a favour, and dance with Mantra. Your audience will notice it. Perfection lies in the details.

62.210.181.15:3130 revisited

There is no great mystery about I.P. no. 62.210.181.15.
It simply relates to an unregistered proxy. That means that you or I or absolutely anybody can use it to surf the net anonymously.

The way to surf the internet anonymously via this I.P. number is to quite simply:

Take
http://62.210.181.15:3130/get?url=http%3A%2F%2F and then add the address of whichever website you want to look at (remember to remove the http:// bit from the start of the address though).

Put the resulting url into your browser, click enter and you are viewing the site anonymously via the proxy number.

Unsolved Problems In The Open Web

These are the kinds of problems made for individual creative people, the kinds of people we enabled with blogging software. But because the leadership turned to silos, we never got to really explore them. This is why it would be a good idea for Google to realize that our interests are aligned, and that they could show some leadership. Would be easy for them.
Winer, proposing Google Inc. to finally embrace the weblog culture. Expertise and union for the Open Web.

Nice move.
