Cypherpunkd Episode 013: “Loom for Geeks Part 2 – The Loom Grid API” – Patrick Chkoreff

Posted April 22nd, 2011 in Cypherpunkd by admin

Patrick joins us again to give us the low down on the Loom Grid API. We go over how one would use the API to create a shopping cart. To create a sweep system to clear out temporary locations used in the public facing cart. SSL/TLS connection checking with the backend. Test code in perl to see how the API works. How to do atomic transactions with many moves/api calls. Any programmer listening to this will have a very clear way to integrate loom into any payment gateway, shopping cart, market system, anything that would need to accept Loom payments Into, Out from, or Inside of the Loom system.

    Throw away ACLs at your peril, Patrick.

    You’ve (at the least) miscalculated the amount of entropy in English (in RE: passphrases).

    As a 73 year old on S.S., living with daughter at lesser rent, I have wanted to market health info and supplies but am put off by the system watching my every financial move—I make any money and they cut off support before I get on my feet. [first to go would be the $225 Alaska helps seniors with] Sooo, just wondering if there would be way to keep earned income away from my bank and state snoops. Diane Winslow
