I visited the TechWorld-arranged seminar Next Generation Threats 2012 today which focused on upcoming trends and threats in the security arena, there were some definitely interesting sessions and some less interesting. Quite alright all in all, but the Technical Museum was a really poor choice of location.
I also found myself in need of actually trying out Twitter as a result of this, since highly recommended by the security experts and presenters as a means of keeping in touch with recent security updates.
Sunrise. First day of work after summer vacations. Ultravox. Brilliant. Treo. Short sleeves and defiance of autumn approaching.
Last night we were up late watching the Perseides star fall.
Speak friend, and enter!
(I’ve finally gotten round to hanging up the new house number plate.)
I’ve started using Goodreads since it seems much nicer than other equivalents I’ve tested and also supports both Facebook, WordPress and iPhone, which none of the previous bookshelf-tools I’ve used before has done.
So far it looks great, just for fun I tried adding most of the books in my bookshelves (all that were available via Goodreads at least) and ended up with about 450 titles read, but missing most of my Swedish books which could not be located which is somewhat of a disappointment.
After the last round of annoying email-related hassles I’ve started to test password randomization both on email and (at first only a few) websites.
Even though right now it’s probably not the optimal randomization scheme, I guess it’s still way better than any easily-found word or sentence I can think up myself.
Right now I just have to find me a simple to use and secure enough password randomization site (any suggestions appreciated). And then it’s just the woes of the stupidity of some websites which won’t accept passwords longer than 8 or 10 characters, and does not handle non-alphanumerical characters at all.
Oh well, they’re getting fewer at least…
Vacation times are here, and we’ve been to Värmland, the little house with the downside of no running water, and no indoor toilet, but on the upside absolute silence (at least when the kids finally take 5 seconds break…) and fantastic nature.
This is a simple experiment. I am trying to break the total facebook-dominance of my life.
Facebook is easy to use, and therefore becomes almost an addiction, yet at the same time it becomes harder and harder to avoid mixing professional and personal life there.
Ideally I should see more real life and less digital life, but in this case I am trying to diversify, to explore other means of publishing myself and the different aspects of me that I wish to share with different audiences.
In this case it’s more professional than my personal thoughts, saved elsewhere.
And I can also allow myself to more explore the new technical features and functions that tend to emerge on the web, something that did not quite fit into the mindset of my other blog. As a side effect it would also potentially allow me to explore the possibilities of geolocation, photostreaming and other similar features.
I will not discard my old blog in favor of this, I hope. My intention is to let them complement each other, maybe I will move some content from there to here where suited. I will see how the experiment turns out.
