Dan Gillmor: P2P’s Promise, and Peril
"I didn’t know this before today, but it turns out that a Web browser can hold open the connection to the server. Normally, a browser sends a request for information, which is delivered by the server. The connection ends.
Is that a solution to make browser-based writing safer? Server backups done on-the-fly would reduce the pain felt when your browser crashes or you close it by mistake, while typing a long post.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
