Although I am one of Wikipedia's admins, anything I post is strictly on my own behalf. I am not an employee of Bomis and I do not officially represent either that company or the Wikipedia project. If I tell you to do something or not do something, it's just friendly advice, not an order from on high.

Personal info

Hello, my name is April King. I'm the head of website security at Mozilla, and I do a lot of writing about TLS and web security.

Name origin

Marumari (丸鞠) is Japanese for "round ball". I originally heard the term in Metroid, and I've used it since, although I don't really associate the name with the game anymore. It just rolls off the tongue nicely.
