The Route of a Text Message
"This is the third post in my full-stack dev (f-s d) series on the secret life of data. This installment is about a single text message: how it was typed, stored, sent, received, and displayed. I sprinkle in some history and context to break up the alphabet soup of protocols, but though the piece gets technical, it should all be easily understood."

Introduction to modern network load balancing and proxying

How to use BeyondCorp to ditch your VPN, improve security and go to the cloud
"For those that aren’t familiar with it, BeyondCorp is a security approach used by Google that allows employees to work from anywhere, quickly and easily.

This is easier said than done. In 2010, we undertook a massive project to rethink how to provide employees with secure remote access to applications: We moved away from our corporate VPN, and introduced BeyondCorp, a zero-trust network security model.

With BeyondCorp, we no longer have a binary access model, where you are either inside the whole corporate network, with all the access that allows, or outside and completely locked out of applications. Our new approach provides a better, more convenient, and less risky way: access to individual services as you need them, based on who you are and what machine you're using."

Network principles
"Government networks form a platform that enables the delivery of digital services. Good network design should create a user experience that the network is transparent, resilient and ubiquitous, with the right balance of quality, speed, security, control and cost.

These principles help designers deliver this experience for their users when designing networks across government. Note that these are principles, not a set of rules that must be arbitrarily followed. Designers can deviate from them where there is good justification."

MicroHoo: corporate penis envy?
"I believe that we're collectively working on an Internet Operating System, and that it will ultimately look more like Unix than it looks like Windows. That is, it will be an aggregate of best of breed tools produced by an army of independent actors, all playing by the same rules so that those tools work together to produce a whole greater than the sum of the parts."
