Is it better to fight to be a CISO, switch to be a senior consultant, or start my own journey in my own company?

@HackerRadioShow I'm curious about retweets. Sure, a given (violating) tweet will not propagate quite as much, but at the same time Trump has a ton of followers who can simply retweet. As far as the warning goes, I think people will simply learn to not see it if they are already someone who approves of the President (or any given user) already.

When you're collecting OSINT and dude's family is literally leaving comments on each other's public Facebook posts with shit like "I miss u and #### sooooo much call me some time ###-###-#### or ###-###-####"

This feels fake, like some training demo.

Hey everyone just a quick announcement, but I did a comic/prose anthology a few months back called Tales From The Fediverse! I’m gonna work on a new issue starting next week, so if you want to be a part of this second issue, the idea submissions window opens next week when I post the official rules!

Boosts are appreciated!

I suspect over the short term, the fediverse will not be the fediverse, as people who can’t get onto an HOA to control how their neighbors mow their lawns take out their deep seated needs to control how others think and act begin forcing instance-level blocks, similar to what happened after Infragard-gate. 😞

And that's what happens when you accidentally post the same post to 🐘 and 🐦 without considering that there's a 🐦 username in it.

Anyway it's at twitter.com/MTPodcastNet for those of you who also bird. I'll sort out a Mastodon for it at some point.

anyway dipshit reply guys notwithstanding, periodic reminder and psa that

1 - fedi is just a bunch of postgres databases with a friendly clown interface on them and anything you post is copied to hundreds of them! this is cool and fine and "federation" but it is not private at ALL! there is zero encryption!

2 - as such yes any DM can be found in said database if an instance admin on one of the instances involved in the DM goes pawing through their database. DMs can also be reported by a participant. this is true of any service, incl twitter, facebook, etc because for those messages to be sent they need to... exist, in a database.

Looks like at least one country is realising the reality of the *Infosec skills shortage* - only after the actual Parliament was attacked though! - You may be interested in this one too @jerry abc.net.au/news/2019-02-20/cyb

I bought a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition from Dell last month. A few days ago someone called Dell pretending to be me, said the laptop wouldn't turn on, and successfully ordered a replacement to a forwarding address in California. 😐

Now that the discourse around #Facebook begins to implicitly accept that it's declining or collapsing, it's become a sure thing. To help accelerate the decline, remind your friends and family of the services that Facebook owns that they should avoid along with the social network: #Instagram, #Whatsapp.
Remind them that #Google are just a more powerful Facebook.
Before they migrate to a new silo, and a new master.. let them know something new is growing over here on the Fediverse.

@whonose123 Yeah, it just made Landfall as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale which is equivelent to Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Typhoon on the JMA Scale, Severe Cyclonic Storm on the Indian Scale, or Intense Tropical Cyclone on the Meteo France Scale for comparison of various Tropical Cyclone Scales.

This is the first named storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season that was named in the region (Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was in the Australian Region but reached naming intensity within Meteo France La Reunion's Area of Responsibility before entering tde Australian Tropical Cyclone Basin)
