The Bamboo DHT -- Introduction The Bamboo DHT -- Introduction A distributed hash table, or DHT, is a building block for peer-to-peer applications. At the most basic level, it allows a group of distributed hosts to collectively manage a mapping from keys to data values, without any fixed hierarchy, and with very little human assistance. This building block can then be used to ease the implementation of a diverse variety of peer-to-peer applications such as file sharing services, DNS replacements, web caches, etc. DHTs were first introduced to the research community in 2001, with the near-simultaneous introduction of four different architectures: CAN, Chord, Pastry, and Tapestry. Since that time, there have been an amazing number of new DHT architectures proposed, but very few publicly-released, robust implementations. Bamboo is a either based on Pastry, a re-engineering of the Pastry protocols, or an entirely new DHT, depending on how you want to look at it.

I2P Anonymous Network

I2P is an anonymizing network, offering a simple layer that identity-sensitive applications can use to securely communicate. All data is wrapped with several layers of encryption, and the network is both distributed and dynamic, with no trusted parties. Many applications are available that interface with I2P, including mail, peer-peer, IRC chat, and others. The I2P project was formed in 2003 to support the efforts of those trying to build a more free society by offering them an uncensorable, anonymous, and secure communication system. I2P is a development effort producing a low latency, fully distributed, autonomous, scalable, anonymous, resilient, and secure network. I2P Anonymous Network

In my code journeys and programming adventures I’ve encountered many strange foes, and even stranger allies. I’ve identified at least five different kinds of code warriors, some make for wonderful comrades in arms, while others seem to foil my every plan. However they all have their place in the pantheon of software development. Without a healthy mix of these different programming styles you’ll probably find your projects either take too long to complete, are not stable enough or are too perfect for humans to look upon.

ACE - Code Editor Creating a new syntax highlighter for Ace is extremly simple. You'll need to define two pieces of code: a new mode, and a new set of highlighting rules. Where to Start We recommend using the the Ace Mode Creator when defining your highlighter. This allows you to inspect your code's tokens, as well as providing a live preview of the syntax highlighter in action.

OpenPlans | Helping cities work better. In November 2013, after Lucian Merryweather was killed by a motor vehicle driver on a Fort Greene sidewalk, Hilda Cohen wanted to act. A long-time street safety advocate, Hilda lived in the neighborhood where the crash happened. She organized her neighbors, under the name Make Brooklyn Safer, to go to the next 88th precinct community council meeting to demand action from local law enforcement. OpenPlans set up a Shareabouts map for Make Brooklyn Safer, for area residents to mark hazardous traffic conditions. Residents can choose categories for their input such as “dangerous crossing” and “traffic does not yield”, as well as leave more detailed comments.
