Get out of the box sometimes

Little boxes on the Laptop,
Little boxes made of Javascript stacks,
Little boxes on the Laptop,
Little boxes all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of Javascript stacks
And they all look just the same.

And the developers in the industry
All went to the IDEs,
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same,
And there's devOps and Rubyers,
And micro services,
And they're all made out of Javascript stacks
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the GitHub
And drink their Kool-aids dry,
And they all have pretty syntax
And the syntax go to HackNews,
And the syntax get approval stamp
And then to the IDEs,
Where they are put in boxes
And they come out all the same.

And the bros go into business
And marry and raise a VC round
In boxes made of Javascript stacks
And they all look just the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of Javascript stacks
And they all look just the same.

Happy Friday everyone!

The feds need to shutdown the bitcoin scam now.

I live in Baltimore, let's say I have some hypothetical friends who are always looking for a good hustle.

Now imagine if my friends got together for a new get-rich-quick-scheme, the scheme is very simple. They invent something called cracken (bitcoins) that they start selling on a few blocks in Hamsterdam.

The way you get crackens is to do laps around the blocks in Hamsterdam. Initially when the scheme was setup, you could get a whole lot of crackens by merely doing a few strolls around the block. Needless to say my friends made out like bandits, since, after all they created the scheme and could take advantage of the first-come-first-serve rules.

Unfortunately for the rest of the hood, the number of laps required to get the same number of crackens keeps going up and after a while even the fittest folks in the neighborhood cannot do the lapse required to earn crackens.

Cracken mania takes hold and infects the whole city. Those with crackens start trading these crackens for exor…

Configuring Kubernetes with Solvent

We've recently been making the rounds showing how Solvent can help with tackling complex configurations often expressed in JSON or YAML.

Kubernetes and other solutions that rely heavily on declarative configurations are ideal candidates for Solvent.

Why Not Signed Password Authentication?

It is now universally acknowledged that basic password authentication does not offer sufficient security. 2-Factor authentication is a major improvement and hopefully would become the standard form of authentication over time.

Another approach that might work well would be to use public key cryptography to authenticate with a signed password instead of just the plain password.

An application (web or native) would generate the public/private key pair and store the private key locally while storing the public key along with the user's password on the server. This key generation can happen for instance during account sign up when it is clear the owner of the account is the one accessing it. Of course a key rotation mechanism can be devised to allow for a flexible way of rotating keys. This would all be transparent to the end user.

Instead of the user submitting just the password, they'll submit both the password and a timestamp based signature, ie plainpassword+curre…
