Today’s M3talinks for Jul 28th

  • Using Keytool to Import SSL Certificates into Sun JDK – TalkingTree.com – 've recently seen a little discussion on CFTalk about importing SSL certificates into the JVM keystore used by the JVM under ColdFusion MX in order to connect to SSL enabled resources, such as LDAP servers or Web Servers while using either the tags CFLDAP, CFHTTP, or CFINVOKE. I've also found myself having to do this for the first time recently. During that process I stumbled on what turned out to be a bug in the JVM 1.4.2-b28 that ships with ColdFusion MX 6.1 by default.
  • Article 1, Section 8, Clause 8: Thomas Jefferson to Isaac McPherson – It has been pretended by some, (and in England especially,) that inventors have a natural and exclusive right to their inventions, and not merely for their own lives, but inheritable to their heirs. But while it is a moot question whether the origin of any kind of property is derived from nature at all, it would be singular to admit a natural and even an hereditary right to inventors. It is agreed by those who have seriously considered the subject, that no individual has, of natural right, a separate property in an acre of land, for instance. By an universal law, indeed, whatever, whether fixed or movable, belongs to all men equally and in common, is the property for the moment of him who occupies it, but when he relinquishes the occupation, the property goes with it. Stable ownership is the gift of social law, and is given late in the progress of society.

  • How The U.S. Government Killed The Safest Car Ever Built – Thirty-five years ago, the U.S. government built a fleet of cars that were safer than anything on the road. Twenty-five years ago, the government shredded them in secret. Two escaped the crusher. This is their story.<br />
    <br />
    As Congress and the auto industry wrestle with another round of tougher safety standards, nothing on the menu comes close to setting up the federal government's own vehicle design business. Yet that's exactly what Congress did in 1966.

  • Stories Matter » Announcing Stories Matter v.1.5.1 – Announcing the Launch of the Stories Matter (On/Online) Database Tool: A New Media Alternative to Oral History Transcription<br />
    <br />
    Michael Frisch has recently written that the “deep dark secret” of oral history, is that we don’t really know what to do with the orality of the source. In transcribing our interviews, we lose the orality almost immediately thus shoring the narratives of much of their meaning. This new media application now offers oral historians an alternative to transcription (available at http://storytelling.concordia.ca/storiesmatter).

  • 140 Characters » How Twitter Was Born – Twitter was born about four years ago, when @Jack, @Biz, @Noah, @Crystal, @Jeremy, @Adam, @TonyStubblebine, @Ev, me (@Dom), @Rabble, @RayReadyRay, @Florian, @TimRoberts, and @Blaine worked at a podcasting company called Odeo, Inc. in South Park, San Francisco. The company had just contributed a major chunk of code to Rails 1.0 and had just shipped Odeo Studio, but we were facing tremendous competition from Apple and other heavyweights. Our board was not feeling optimistic, and we were forced to reinvent ourselves.
