web extensions! in firefox nightly you can do tcp, udp, custom protocol handlers, fast file system access. with webasm, you can use packages from rust (and eventually c/c++) for the hot code paths.

Open source is not free: what happens 7 years after code is given away with no one left to maintain it? The users (businesses?) get hacked. OSS volunteers found that narrowly escaped a massive hack today

not much to look at right now, but if you've got an SDR laying around or some bandwidth to provide, the developer preview of RadioWitness is some real P2P magic. Immutable, peer-to-peer archiving and distribution of police radio, powered by .
