Apparently if you are logged in chrome, it will provide to websites like Quora and Pinterest(login with google) your information, beacause a few days ago I saw a question on quora the first time (i don't have a quota account) and it suggested me to login with Google(I didn't), a few days later (today) I got an email asking if I'm still interested in that question...
I visit quota once, I didn't login or gave my info and I now I'm tracked.
That's crazy.... It only took 20s on the website.
?? This is awesome!

When no adults are on the room and no one tells programmers to make sure passwords are handled securely they fuck up. Was this considered news or just proof of what we now?

Things to do on a Sunday - writing the job description for my first hire for the security team at Nurx. Excited to be able to move quicker than I thought, but it’s hard to define the role focused enough while covering all things a small team has to handle for a startup.
Anyone seen a rainbow barfing unicorn? That’s be a close match.

So had my 7 year old son today ask what TFA was. I said I don't know assuming that it was another YouTube sensation or something. He then showed me. What he was referring to was 2FA. Fortnite is now encouraging gamers to enable 2FA on their accounts and in return they get an item for free. What a great way to educate youngsters and better secure their accounts. Very impressed with Epic and their approach to security 😀
During an interview
„What would you use to do $x“
„I’d use $y, it’s not that we know but awesome!“
„I’m not sure that’s the best idea for this scenario, we want x,y and z and y and z aren’t that well supported“
„Oh it works you just have to learn a bit more about $y to understand how to do it“
Candidate was talking about a project I created...
Just published „unit testing command line applications in #Swift“ https://www.timo-zimmermann.de/2019/02/unit-testing-command-line-applications-in-swift/ - I actually managed to run in one of „those problems“
