comment EV SSL Certificates - does anyone care?
@mikemaccana I understand that dynamic (and the same thoughts occurred to me too when EV was first introduced). However, are we seeing the cycle repeating? I remember getting either a regular Comodo or VeriSign (now Symantec) signed cert in the early 2000s for about $100. It required a business license or proof of address and an ID and took a little under a week to process. When EVs first came out, Comodo was charging $360/year. Now they're back down to $99/year. And they also sell "High Assurance" EV certs under 3 flavors: InstantSSL/InstantSSL Pro/InstantSSL Premium for ~$50.

If you're still having trouble following, please read Peter Gutmann's commentary on PKI-Me-Harder (p72): cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/book.pdf

comment EV SSL Certificates - does anyone care?
@mikemaccana No, that's what revised baseline requirements are supposed to be for. The EV guidelines create a class of premium certificates that serve the role of original signed certificates, which does not address the issue of lapsed enforcement of baseline requirements. How does the introduction of EV certificates fix regular CA signed certificates being poorly audited? Is there an incentive to buy EV certificates if the baseline requirements are shored up and properly enforced?

comment Republishing blog posts on a popular website
@ClayNichols It appears the content of that page has changed. All of the search results I can find at the moment referring to original-source and syndication-source meta tags appear to be from 2010-2011, so perhaps Google has abandoned the tags and only supports standout now If that's the case, then my answer is no longer valid.

comment Is there a use case for not employing Elastic Beanstalk?
@jeffatrackaid: I'm not sure what other stackexchange site this would be more suitable to. It's only opinion based if you consider questions like this opinion-based: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/66960/…. I was looking for caveats for Elastic Beanstalk, e.g. you can't use S3 to host dynamic content, which I don't feel is opinion-based--application specific, perhaps, but I don't know what makes it "highly specific". It seems like it would be pretty generally useful info for webmasters.
