A few corrections and additions

Jun 29 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

We noticed earlier that Aftonbladet AB almost disappeared from listings, turns out that they inherited a partial range from their sister-company Svenska Dagbladet AB, as they are now located in the same building. We got a tip through email with no specifics about what ranges were split/delegated .. dug it out in a matter of minutes.

Svenska Dagbladet AB -

was changed into…

Svenska Dagbladet AB -
Aftonbladet AB -

Another tip we received through email was a new Norwegian newspaper, which we could not find .. instead, while researching we found a few other that we now have added to the ranges .. Norwegian and Danish newspapers. - Bergens Tidende AS - Bergens Tidende AS - Bergens Tidende AS - Norsk Rikskringkasting AS NRK - Bergens Tidende AS - Fjordenes Tidende AS - Bornholms Tidende - Berlingske - Berlingske - Bornholms Tidende - Bornholms Tidende

In the press again ( )

Yesterday the article was published after a long anticipated wait since early April, Scoop: Hur paranoida bör vi vara (“How paranoid should we be?”), unfortunately only available in Swedish — Google Translate mangles it pretty bad but you might get the picture. Scoop is a pocket-sized magazine for investigative journalism published by Föreningen Grävande Journalister (the Swedish Investigative Journalism Association), for which I was interviewed in end of march about online traces, cryptography and anonymity .. this issue were themed “Makt och motstånd” (“Power and resistance”).

I were expecting to buy the paper-version to get hold of the article, but out of curiosity I checked the Scoop site to see if they had released details about the new issue .. they published the whole article online! Still, I ordered the print pocket book, it’s about €9 or $10 on their site, don’t know if they ship outside of Sweden.

Request for suggestions

Jun 15 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

It’s been a while since I had the time to really do something constructive with the code, the project has been put into a maintenance phase, not moving in any direction, as I’ve been caught up in work — quitting employment, beginning a new.

I’ll put this request for suggestions out; what would you like to seen added and/or changed on MediaCreeper? All suggestions will be taken under consideration, I’ll even blog about each suggestion and evaluate it, with argumentation for/against inclusion into the code base.

Issues that is already on the roadmap..

  • Optimize database-connections (in transitional work for moving off MySQL to a non-sql database in the future, probably MongoDb)
  • Make web site more dynamic, add ajax to update listings
  • Clean up code base to prepare for public release, as open source
  • Sync API-calls with WordPress plugin CreeperPing
  • Adding full support for IPv6 — currently spotty support

.. there is possibly more issues that I’ve forgotten about, adding them as they bubble up.
