Nomadic Identity in a nutshell
Here's the low-down on how nomadic identity works.

You've got an ID. Let's say it's "Fred Flintstone".

Sign this with a digital signature.

You've got a current web location. Let's say it's https://example.com

Sign it with a digital signature.


Send these four pieces of information anywhere. When it arrives at the other end, the site at the other end will connect to your current web location with a "well-known URL" and ask for the info packet for your ID and with this signature. This returns some basic information, along with the public key you need to verify both signatures.

If you change web location, repeat the process. Bad guy cannot assume your identity without your private key because the same public key needs to verify both your ID and the location, and you *always* verify through a callback to the current location.

The callback requirement is what makes this work.

But once the identity has been verified, you can store these four bits of information. Put the ID bits (ID plus signature) in one table and the web location bits in another. You can have many web locations for one identity. What makes this work is that if you wish to communicate with the same site again, you send the same four pieces of information, and the site at the other end always has to callback to your location to retrieve the communications. It does not need to verify the signatures ever again, unless you post from a new location.

So next time you post as Fred Flintstone from https://myother.crazy.website, the verification process is repeated, but to all the other sites you've ever communicated with before, you're still Fred Flintstone.

Ya know - I spent a lot of hours on the old hashtag parser to reduce/eliminate false positives. About the only thing that could trip it up was a shell script with comments inside the post.

This new one is really getting on my nerves. #justsayin

Well this is slightly disturbing - Google is now consistently showing me ads for Islamic dating services. Does this indicate that according to their metrics a lack of tracking cookie history means it's highly likely that you're a terrorist?

And I should not generalise. Single Muslims aren't necessarily terrorists - by a long shot. I'm just trying to find an explanation why these particular ad choices might be associated with a lack of tracking info.

For what I know, the more people date, the less they become terrorists ;)

Ooh, want. Don't be silly, I wouldn't wear it - ever. But I can think of some very interesting applications. What's fascinating is that people are wearing these things voluntarily. Can you say "electro-shock therapy"? Can you say "behaviour modification"? I thought so...

Hoping within the next 24-48 hours to finish up the synchronisation of Red identity clones. Essentially any change you make to your settings or connections will invisibly update on every hub your channel has registered. So you go to your other Red site and even your plugin settings will be the same. Nothing I can do about the other site not offering the same plugins, but if they ever do add one you had on your other site, it will already be configured for you.

Interesting evening in Australia. Kevin steps up to the plate and throws down the gauntlet to Julia. Leadership challenge in a little over an hour. These things happen somewhat quickly here. The loser promises to walk away from politics. See Kevin is the dude that got voted in. Julia broadsided him and took over as prime minister - with no popular vote; in an evening much like tonight a few years back. This kind of thing doesn't happen in America. It's somewhat normal here.

Then the State of Origin is on - and it *could* be the first time the blues have won in aeons.

Could wake up tomorrow to a new era. Or could wake up to the same-o same-o.

guessing its not really Julia or Kevin pulling the strings there ..

as it gets close to an election public discussion and media focus always seems to become less and less about issues and policies and more about personalities, slogans, politicians at football matches, baby kissing etc ..
Its very rare to hear much sense out of any of them (on any side) in the last few months before an election!
