It’s just data

Secure Blogging by Email

Ben Hammersley: Being able to prove ownership, or at least definitive origination, would be an excellent ability to have. And once again, it's the blogging world who are getting up and actually doing it, small piece by small piece.

I actually think the sweet spot is in comments. How I chose to update my weblog is of an academic interest to most, but the ability to author new content is of a much wider interest. At the moment, the best I can say is that a given comment is purported to be by Ben or Mark or Shelley or whoever.

But I would prefer to start this much more incrementally. The most basic thing comments by email provide is the ability to download various RSS feeds, hit the road, and respond while disconnected. If you want to try this, you can do it on this blog entry.

The next thing people will want is the ability to specify a URL of their homepage to be displayed instead of their e-mail address. Much discussion will ensue as to whether this should be a MIME header or in the body. If defacto standards emerge in this area, I will simply support both.

Signing is the next step, particularly given that e-mail clients already tend to have built in support for this. Ultimately, when the spam starts arriving, only signed e-mails will be accepted.

Services are the next step. If I can validate a signature against some data located via a link from your home page, I would be comfortable with providing Jabber messages whenever additional comments are made to a blog entry that you have commented on. Or on processing signed requests to update or delete weblog entries that you originated.

Update: I've changed the address to be blog-1172 instead of blog:1172 so that email clients need not quote the address per RFC 822


Now that's a nifty idea

Aaron, two things:

1) I do have these addresses in my <comments> entry in my rss2 feed. Suggestions welcome for my other feeds

2) At the moment, I don't accept html in my e-mails. ;-)

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Seth: at the moment, my comments are decidely linear. The only option available is to append to the bottom.

I also plan to selectively relax the restriction against html in comments once I get everything else debugged.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Sam, the problem with putting the links in a "plain" <comments> element is that it lacks additional level of indirection useful for aggregators.

Assume that you have three ways to add comments: email, HTML form, and a web service. How could an offline aggregator "know" that I'd prefer to use the email method?

I think adding a "rel" (or similar) to the <comments> element, similar to the way we put "semantic" links in HTML, would prove beneficial.

A great idea, BTW!

Posted by Ziv Caspi at

Ziv, my feeling is that you shouldn't care what I prefer, instead I should tell you what I support, and you should feel free take your pick.

If I see somebody else define and consume an RSS module for this information, I will support it. I do want it to be a module as <comment> is part of the frozen core. And I don't want this to be simply an intellectual exercise, that's whey I want to identify the consumer first.

I knew someone was going to bring that up about NewsGator. :-) Unfortunately we can't edit the "From" in Outlook, so the built-in reply functionality won't work for this. What I'm thinking about, though, is have a comment link or icon next to the existing post link on the top line of the post...with Sam's feed, it would be a mailto link, and with others, it would be a http link.

RSS support?

Hm, it'd be interesting to add these addresses to the RSS feeds, my <a href="http://www.w3.org/2002/09/rss2email/">email-based RSS aggregator</a> could then use them to set the From address so that email replies would show up properly. -- Aaron Swartz [http://www.aaronsw.com/]

Sam, I assure you there's intellectual sitting in my chair :-)

I've checked-in a slight update to Aggie that harvests your item/comments elements and renders them as a link allowing readers to send back comments via email.

I promise to add support in Aggie for whatever module we could agree upon for sending back comments, as long it could be done from a browser (as Aggie relies on IE HTML rendering)

Cheers

Opps, I meant *no* intellectual, of course.

Posted by Ziv Caspi at

Adding comments via email is very smart. Implementing readers that recognize the <comments> tag and possibly support a smarter <textinput> that would give readers the info needed to create a dialog for inputs would also improve the experience. MCA

MR.ALEX NWAODO BRANCH MANAGER, UNITED BANK FOR AFRICA PLC ILUPEJU BRANCH LAGOS NIGERIA TELEPHONE: 234-1-776 0962 FAX: 234-1-759-4725 I am pleased to get across to you for a very urgent and profitable business proposal, though I don't know you neither have I seen you before but my confidence was reposed on you when the Chief Executive of Lagos State chamber of Commerce and Industry handed me your contact for a confidential business.

Unfortunately, the man died four years ago until today non-of his next of kin has come forward to claim the money. Having noticed this, I in collaboration with two other top Officials of the bank have covered up the account all this while. Now we want you (being a foreigner) to be fronted as one of his next of kin and forward your account and other relevant documents to be advised to you by us to attest to the Claim. We will use our positions to get all internal documentations to back up the claims .The whole procedures will last only five working days to get the fund retrieved successfully without trace even now or in future.

Here comes the spam!

Posted by Matt Croydon at

Matt - how can you be so sure? Dr Ani sounds so sincere... perhaps somebody out there can help him?

Ok, seriously... this is actually the fourth spam item I got... I quickly removed the first three. The first I am convinced was simply an attempt to prove it can be done. The second I'm not so sure of. The third and fourth are clearly spam.

I've not yet received any spam on any other blog entry even though they are all e-mail enabled.

I could require signing... but something I might do first is pre-fill in the subject line and require it to be unmodified and see if that cuts down on things.

Suggestions welcome.

Posted by Sam Ruby at

Sam- I like the email subject idea. In theory it should filter out all but the most persistent spammers.

If that fails, you could instruct users to include a keyword or passphrase in their subject line, such as the entry id.

Of course you could always Bayesian spam filter-enable your weblog. A few lines of Perl and a new template, right? ;)
