Reading The OAuth 1.0 Guide

WordPress.com now supports the OAuth 2.0 protocol. I checked out the developer portal develop.wordpress.com and wanted to learn more about the OAuth spec, so I’m reading the guide (http://hueniverse.com/oauth/guide/)!

Specifically, the section on the signature methods (Security Framework > Signature and Hash) http://hueniverse.com/oauth/guide/security/ is worthy reviewing.

CEO Blog: Delivery.com on Campus | The Delivery Zone – The Delivery.com Blog.

College students today are equipped with ID cards, which unlike when their parents were in school, are connected to payment processing systems that enable family members to debit money to those cards for their children’s everyday purchases. […] Seeing an opportunity to offer college students online ordering and a larger selection of local merchants, we have partnered with payment processing systems so college students can place orders on Delivery.com with their student ID cards.

If Facebook taught us anything it is that the wants and needs of students at one school give a good indication of what students everywhere want. So we are quickly expanding our campus program nationwide, enabling college students to transact with the network of local merchants that they depend on whenever they are online, which for students nowadays is all the time, whether that be in Columbus, Ohio or Phoenix, Arizona.

WordPress › State of the Word.

Matt Mullenweg’s speech to the WordPress community, it’s got a lot of information on the current state of the software as well as its community, very interesting to watch.

HP To Apple: You Win. | TechCrunch.

That phrase was one of the first things that jumped to my mind today when I heard the news that HP was not only killing off their TouchPad and Pre webOS-based products, but also trying to spin-off their PC business. The largest PC business in the world, mind you.

After all, while HP may be the worldwide leader in PC sales with massive revenues, their actual profit from those sales has already been far surpassed by Apple. Further, while overall PC growth continues to contract, Apple’s Mac sales continue to grow and have outpaced the rest of the PC industry for 21 consecutive quarters. That’s over five consecutive years. That’s certainly another way to interpret ”Post-PC world”.

This is definitely the end of an era. Make WebOS open source and let the community continue to develop it?
