Douglas Crockford: The Seif Project
Douglas Crockford has long been a man who uses software to make the world good and not evil. In this keynote for ForwardJS 4, he delivers a progress report on an endeavor he has been working on: The Seif Project.
Or a slightly more recent talk:
PolyConf 16: The Seif Project / Douglas Crockford
This one is a couple months newer, but I imagine there will be a lot of overlap as far as the history, objectives, and status.
The Seif Project is a rearchitecting of the 'the web' to be more secure and meet the demands of modern web technologies/applications. Considering how much of our lives is now accessed via the web, and how often web security is broken, this project could be one of the best ways to secure our digital lives in the future.
