Thoughts on the Latest Development in the U.S. Administration Travel Ban case

Mozilla Blog - mo, 26/06/2017 - 21:55

This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to hear the lawfulness of the U.S. Administration’s revised Travel Ban. We’ve opposed this Executive Order from the beginning as it undermines immigration law and impedes the travel necessary for people who build, maintain, and protect the Internet to come together.

Today’s new development means that until the legal case is resolved the travel ban cannot be enforced against people from the six predominantly Muslim countries who have legitimate ties or relationships to family or business in the U.S. This includes company employees and those visiting close family members.

However, the Supreme Court departed from lower court opinions by allowing the ban to be enforced against visa applicants with no connection to the U.S.  We hope that the Government will apply this standard in a manner so that qualified visa applicants who demonstrate valid reasons for travel to the U.S. are not discriminated against, and that these decisions are reliably made to avoid the chaos that travelers, families, and business experienced earlier this year.

Ultimately, we would like the Court to hold that blanket bans targeted at people of particular religions or nationalities are unlawful under the U.S. Constitution and harmfully impact families, businesses, and the global community.  We will continue to follow this case and advocate for the free flow of information and ideas across borders, of which travel is a key part.

A $2 Million Prize to Decentralize the Web. Apply Today

Mozilla Blog - wo, 21/06/2017 - 13:30
We’re fueling a healthy Internet by supporting big ideas that keep the web accessible, decentralized and resilient. What will you build?

 

Mozilla and the National Science Foundation are offering a $2 million prize for big ideas that decentralize the web. And we’re accepting applications starting today.

Mozilla believes the Internet is a global public resource that must be open and accessible to all.  In the 21st century, a lack of Internet access is far more than an inconvenience — it’s a staggering disadvantage. Without access, individuals miss out on substantial economic and educational opportunities, government services and the ability to communicate with friends, family and peers.

Currently, 34 million people in the U.S. — 10% of the country’s population — lack access to high-quality Internet connectivity. This number jumps to 39% in rural communities and 41% on Tribal lands. And when disasters strike, millions more can lose vital connectivity right when it’s needed most.

To connect the unconnected and disconnected across the U.S., Mozilla today is accepting applications for the Wireless Innovation for a Networked Society (WINS) challenges. Sponsored by NSF, a total of $2 million in prize money is available for wireless solutions that get people online after disasters, or that connect communities lacking reliable Internet access.

The details:

Off-the-Grid Internet Challenge

When disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes strike, communications networks are among the first pieces of critical infrastructure to overload or fail. How can we leverage both the Internet’s decentralized design and current wireless technology to keep people connected to each other — and vital messaging and mapping services — in the aftermath of a disaster?

Challenge applicants will be expected to design both the means to access the wireless network (i.e. hardware) and the applications provided on top of that network (i.e. software). Projects should be portable, easy to power and simple to access.

Here’s an example: A backpack containing a hard drive computer, battery and Wi-Fi router. The router provides access, via a Wi-Fi network, to resources on the hard drive like maps and messaging applications.

Smart Community Networks Challenge

Many communities across the U.S. lack reliable Internet access. Sometimes commercial providers don’t supply affordable access; sometimes a particular community is too isolated; sometimes the speed and quality of access is too slow. How can we leverage existing infrastructure — physical or network — to provide high-quality wireless connectivity to communities in need?

Challenge applicants should plan for a high density of users, far-reaching range and robust bandwidth. Projects should also aim to make a minimal physical footprint and uphold users’ privacy and security.

Here’s an example: A neighborhood wireless network where the nodes are housed in, and draw power from, disused phone booths or similarly underutilized infrastructure.

These challenges are open to individuals and teams, nonprofits and for-profits. Applicants could be academics, technology activists, entrepreneurs or makers. We’re welcoming anyone with big ideas and passion for a healthy Internet to apply. Prizes will be available for both early-stage design concepts and fully-working prototypes.

To learn more and apply, visit https://wirelesschallenge.mozilla.org. This challenge is one of Mozilla’s open innovation competitions, which also includes the Equal Rating Innovation Challenge.

Chris McDonald: Message Broker: Into String

Mozilla planet - ti, 20/06/2017 - 23:18

Strings in most native or performance focused languages tend to present a fair amount of complexity and Rust is no exception to this. There are cases where you have a struct that needs to have a name, such as:

struct ServiceHandle { name: String, }

The first ServiceHandle::new() function I would typically write when first learning Rust would look like this:

fn new(name: String) -> ServiceHandle { // other init stuff ServiceHandle { name: name } }

In the real world I generally have a String to pass to ServiceHandle::new(String) so this API works well. But when I’m writing tests for my code, I want to pass hard coded values with type &'static str. In order to do that, I have to call one of the conversion functions.

ServiceHandle::new("listener".into()); ServiceHandle::new("listener".to_owned()); ServiceHandle::new(String::from("listener"));

If I change the signature to something like:

fn new(name: &'a str) -> ServiceHandle { // other init stuff ServiceHandle { name: name.to_owned() } }

Then I have to remember to prefix String with & when passing to the function. Another possibility is to from_string and from_str which is what I started to rely on next. Then I don’t have to remember as much, just use the right one for the right type.

fn from_str(name: &'a str) -> ServiceHandle { // skip init stuff, let from_string do it ServiceHandle::from_string(name.to_owned()) } fn from_string(name: String) -> ServiceHandle { // other init stuff ServiceHandle { name: name } }

This gets me into a better state where it is easy to remember what string type it takes, but it feels clumsy. Rust provides the From and Into traits that types can implement to enable more generic coding. They are as their name implies a way to automatically change types. They are “reflexive” which means that if one of them is implemented the other can use it. For example, impl From<A> for B would allow you to write a function like fn thing<T: Into<B>>(arg: T) which could be called like thing(A {}).

So the next iteration of my ServiceHandle::new() went generic:

fn new<S: Into<String>>(name: S) -> ServiceHandle { ServiceHandle { name: name.into() } }

This allows calling with String, &str or several other types that can automatically be converted into a String. Making writing testing code with &'static str simple, while dynamically generated String objects still a first class citizen.
