Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

secure semi-public collaboration

Jon Udell comments on Ray Ozzie's and others postings on security, colaboration and weblogs. He says:

Weblogs don't yet offer an architectural solution to secure semi-public collaboration. Wrapping SSL and passwords around your blog can work, but the administrative hassles involved push this option far off the path of least resistance. Groove-style "always-on" and "complacency-immune" security sounds appealing, but it's not a solution yet either.

Exactly the same problem exists in ad hoc networks (specially wireless ad hoc) and weblogs and ad hoc nets have many similarities (a point I was making a few days ago). So a solution from one should eventually find its way into the other.
