Re: Improving the Wiki

On an impulse, I checked some names scored bits.name for $10. I'm more than happy to donate it to the development fund.

Bit.org.nz is available and bit.name, bit.net, and bit.org all look unused. It might be worthwhile to contact them and ask for a donation.

Re: Improving the Wiki

Well, there is http://namecoin.info (though it is out of date and can only be changed by Khal and me afaik) It feels to me like the two should be flipped. Dot-bit.org sounds like somewhere I would send people that are interested in new domain names. An end-user wouldn't think "dns" when they wanted...

Re: Improving the Wiki

The main wiki is find for developers, but I think a more user-oriented website should serve as the main entry point for the project. I think the debate over multiple wiki's confuses the purpose of a developer wiki for that of the organization's communication platform. In that respect, every large op...

Re: Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

That said, why not use a downloadable JS file? It could be distributed as a browser addon with minimal extra effort, and that way it's auditable. I think I need to re-frame this discussion, because that's exactly what I am trying to accomplish: a basic JavaScript library that can enable end users t...

Re: Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

Providing a signed, open-source, downloadable Javascript file would most likely be fine. However, if a web server is providing this file every time a .bit site is visited, it would be trivial for the server to send malicious JS depending on certain targeted user IP's or destination domains. This wo...

Re: Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

Not sure if I understand the proposal completely, but what prevents your server from either wiretapping the connection metadata or modifying the data which is returned by the .bit website? This doesn't sound any better in terms of security/privacy than a 3rd-party DNS server. For that matter, would...

Re: Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

There should be some proxies available even open source. I think Khal's at least. A proxy is infeasible for two reasons: Proxies are expensive. Someone has to pay for all the bandwidth and CPU to route every connection. Speech.is, on the other hand, is a single, static HTML file which will be serve...

Re: Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

forwarding to the ip will not work so well as most servers run several domains on one ip. Ahh, but that is by convention, it's trivial to specify specific websites according to IP address. We just need to establish a new convention. Eventually, Cross-Origin Resource Sharing will make it so the user...

Speech.is, breaking out of the alt TLD niche

I would like to propose a bridge to the .bit TLD for all internet users without a proxy/forwarding domain/iframes. Instead, a website server located at speech.is would host a single page that loads Javascript to parse the DNS records directly. The user would travel to wikileaks.bit by typing wikilea...
