Hi Ben,

Thanks -- this is a great question. I'd love for annotateit.org to be
behind TLS. Unfortunately, as you've noticed AnnotateIt is currently
hosted on Heroku, where TLS is not exactly cheap. We'd need to buy a
certificate and then pay $20/mo. for termination on Heroku.

It's not hard to do, and I'd be happy to do it in a spare moment. Let me
talk to some people about whether we could pay for this.
