What is Secure Programmable Social Media?

TheCouchPotatoFamine (628797) writes "A new technology from DOM Algebra called "Nametag" has turned the concept of client-server applications distributed via HTML on it's head, providing an permanent system of creating secure social media apps, right in the browser itself, between you and your friends without ever asking you to trust the service provider not to reveal your information; they never have it.

The recent NSA debacles have made for a good introduction into the need for privacy in everyday activities. Your web browser can act as a "social computer", fully capable (via high-quality RSA/AES encryption written in pure Javascript), to deliver a rich social media experience without sending anything to anyone other than your friends "in the clear". You can see a working demo at "TagOS" (but please view the demo in Google Chrome or Apple's Safari, because they have fast math routines)

Developers can go farther, creating entire apps they can share with friends via social media, authoring right in the browser using javascript. They never share their code with anyone but their friends. It works, today.

Is the world ready for web-applications available anywhere, totally secure, that meet your social media needs with fun and immediacy, without any tradeoffs? What do you think?"
