So, apparently some time in October and unbeknownst to me, my website got (was given?) an SSL certificate so that it would resolve via https. I accidentally discovered this today and spent a few minutes setting up the appropriate redirects so that everyone is forced to use https links to access my site. I may still have a few administrative redirects and some bookmarklets to tweak along the way, but the whole process was far simpler than I would have expected.

A nice side benefit is that now the Simple Location data I’d like to use will now self-populate when I make posts relating to location!

Read Google Condemns the Archival Web by Doc Searls (doc.blog)
The archival Web—the one you see through the protocol HTTP—will soon be condemned, cordoned off behind Google's police tape, labeled "insecure" on every current Chrome browser. For some perspective on this, imagine if suddenly all the national parks in the world became forbidden zones because nature created them before they could only be seen through crypto eyeglasses. Every legacy website, nearly all of which were created with no malice, commit no fraud and distribute no malware, will become haunted houses: still there, but too scary for most people to visit. It's easy to imagine, and Google wants you to imagine it.
