Tues 3/26 "It's the Web, Tim, but not as we know it"

On Tuesday March[masked], at Thoughtworks NYC office, the Internet Society's New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) will present "It's the Web, Tim, but not as we know it" in which guest Michiel de Jong will explain unhosted, an open source solution for privacy and security in the cloud. The event is public, wheelchair accessible, and free.

The web started out as a platform for static documents. It then evolved into a platform for hosted software, that runs "in the cloud", outside the user's control. But html5 technology allows for a new option: "unhosted web apps". Like documents, unhosted web apps are served as static content, which makes them cheap to publish. But like hosted software, they can have all the interactive functionality of a software application. In this new paradigm, the web is used to deliver the source code of the application, rather than delivering its user interface. Two years ago Michiel de Jong quit his day job as a scalability engineer, to work on free technology in exchange for donations. He now lives as a digital nomad and will be giving this talk remotely. This is a followup to the 2012 ISOC-NY/NYTECH event "New Techniques for Protecting Cloud Data and Security"
