Forecasting the top 4 RSA Conference themes for 2019 - GeekWire

They missed ZeroTrust. Not just my employer (stop by Akamai’s booth on Wednesday), but across the expo floor. SDP, identity aware proxies and micro segmentation will be common phrases across many of the vendors.

Good to see some thinking outside the box here. UHW traffic is a nightmare, getting more community services into unused facilities like Whitchurch hospital is a great idea, much better than more residential units on that land. More investment in health services! twitter.com/ILovesThe…

And before you say "Y2K wasn't a big deal". The reason it wasn't a big deal is because programmers worked hard for years prior to prepare. The 2038 bug will probably get less hype because it's not as obvious and could be more dangerous because it's meant for computer timekeeping.

This Christmas I received a cocktail shaker set. Been experimenting a little… just noticed that most of a bottle of Amaretto has gone and I don’t even like almond flavor…

Dear Vendors - when you receive a list of attendees to a conference, don’t lie about talking to me there. It’s especially bad when I missed the conference at the last minute but I’m also selective about which vendors I engage with so I will remember if I do.

Well this just made me jump. Didn’t get a presidential alert but I did get the 911 warning. Glad it was this way round.

The more Mastodon servers there, are, the better. The more spread out people are across them, the more the network is resilient to various failure modes.

The basic premise of Mastodon is that you follow your friends from different servers! So go forth, and explore the fediverse ☺️

Holy shit! Someone found a bootleg video of one the talks where I coined the term #lifehacks ! Before the hashtag, even!

I remember when it was really taking off and I was failing to write a book on productivity, Annalee Newitz said to me "... but wasn't your talk supposed to be a *joke*?

This talk was in Britain in front of a friendly audience, so it may have been more joke-y than the original O'Reilly event, but she wasn't wrong...
