Oh dear God.

Oh dear GOD. It’s going to involve blockchain. So you’re going to pull two gigabytes to see your timeline on mobile devices instead of using something sensible and friendly to people.

Why won’t this blockchain trend die off?! (

hackernews nerds don't know the difference between distributed, decentralized, and federated. so here's an oversimplification:

distributed: when separate systems coördinate. placement of authority is a differentiating factor of their design.

decentralized: distributed system that can elect to defer or migrate central authority. mutable actions may be negotiated.

federated: distributed system that has nomadic and often competitive authorities. actors negotiate their own activity at any point.

I really want every corporate traveler to have a privacy screen.

At the airport and seeing this guy do a m&a deck (IN GOOGLE DRIVE?!?) without a privacy screen. I really hope he’s not on public WiFi

Back in Seattle. I love having family here but still can’t pull the trigger and fully move here for a job. I love SF too much. And it’s cold here. 🥶

Got in this evening after a weekend w family and my partner. I’m home alone. No roommate, partner. And I’m proud to say I used the fee time to reset all household passwords and update all firmware. Most of the evening spent on unmounting a pesky NAS device. Glad funemployment is benefitting my home in terms of privacy and updates :)

Infosec friends - I’m seeing a lot of funding and opportunities in the cyber insurance space. Does anyone have thoughts on the recent cyber insurance/risk startups? I’m keen on learning more before taking on another startup opportunity.

DM or respond openly :)

Sorry not sorry for posting non infotech things lately.

Here’s an aerial shot of San Francisco 🌆🌉

Funemployment does have its perks.

Also - has anyone in infosec read Murakami? As I’m rereading more of his work, I believe he saw opportunities of hacking and other vulnerabilities in daily life with his surrealism

Well now it’s real. I’ve been laid off.

SF transplants, please take this an opportunity to learn about earthquake safety

A good friend of mine at work just got laid off. No indication of his work, personal or professional issues. Just “business”. But it’s just him. Not a department or team. Seems a bit off.

The number of diverse candidates in this co is now down to 1 hand

Has anyone in the verse heard of or developed on Voiceflow before?

Hmm trade offs: At a tech meetup with decent food but doesn’t start remotely on time. Would you rather have good food/drinks and not start on time or the reverse?

It’s been an interesting past few days professionally. Looking to start brushing off the dust on my resume. Let me know if you know of any product roles in the infosec/cyber space, fed fam!

I'm doing research on root cause analysis and problem solving skills - I miss bringing in RCA visualizations and risk trees. And dare I say -- want to bring it back?!

I spent most of the day going through things in my place and gifting it to my siblings who are visiting or trashing all together. Removing the clutter in my life is the most liberating feeling!
