Engineering Ethics Blog: Paywalls On the Rise

Excuse me for getting self-referential in what follows, but something has been happening that readers have probably noticed as well, and I think it’s time to talk about it.  I suppose I’ve run across the word “paywall” before, but it must be of fairly recent vintage.  It refers to the practice of a publication to require payment for access to part or all of their online content.  Way back in 1996, the Wall Street Journal was the first major newspaper…

‘Conductor’ gene found in plant root stem cell ‘orchestra’ — ScienceDaily

In a new paper, researchers at North Carolina State University lift the veil on the “conductor” plant root stem cell gene that helps orchestrate and coordinate stem cell division of different root stem cell types, ensuring the harmonic communication necessary for plant growth and maintenance. Ross Sozzani, an NC State associate professor of plant and microbial biology and corresponding author of the paper, says that the conductor behind this communication — which is critical to key aspects of plant development,…

Which is the Most Secure Broadband Provider?

The two most important factors which we consider when choosing our broadband provider are probably value and security. Many people face budget constraints and would prefer a broadband provider that gives value for money. But more important than getting good value from our broadband provider, is security. If our vulnerable children surf the net without protection, they may fall prey to predators. We may be attacked by phishing sites that collect our sensitive information. We may enter malware-infected sites and…

Thinking about color

Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment – Claude Monet Over the last two years we’ve tried to improve our usage of color at Cloudflare. There were a number of forcing functions that made this work a priority. As a small team of designers and engineers we had inherited a bunch of design work that was a mix of values built by multiple teams. As a result it was difficult and unnecessarily time consuming to add new colors when…

Research has Implications for Aging, Arthritis and Osteoporosis

Ketcham Professor of Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering Elizabeth Loboa says her research warns of the potential side effects of some osteoporosis treatments because they might damage the neighboring cartilage. It is well-known that a lack of physical activity can cause bone loss or fractures in elderly people, bedridden patients or even sedentary youth. That’s because bone mass is regulated, in part, by mechanical stimuli. Similar to muscles, bones add mass when they are mechanically loaded via physical activity but…

New strategies against bone metastases from prostate cancer — ScienceDaily

When prostate cancer spreads, it most often spreads to bone. And while the 5-year survival rate for prostate cancer that has not spread is nearly 100 percent, once the disease reaches bone, the 5-year survival rate is only 29 percent. Now a University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the Journal for Immunotherapy of Cancer suggests a new approach, or, possibly two new approaches against these bone metastases: While targeted therapies and anti-cancer immunotherapies have not been especially successful…

A History of HTML Parsing at Cloudflare: Part 1

To coincide with the launch of streaming HTML rewriting functionality for Cloudflare Workers we are open sourcing the Rust HTML rewriter (LOL HTML) used to back the Workers HTMLRewriter API. We also thought it was about time to review the history of HTML rewriting at Cloudflare. The first blog post will explain the basics of a streaming HTML rewriter and our particular requirements. We start around 8 years ago by describing the group of ‘ad-hoc’ parsers that were created with…
