Whistleblowing Is Not Just Leaking — It’s an Act of Political Resistance ©theintercept.com

One of the challenges of being a whistleblower is living with the knowledge that people continue to sit, just as you did, at those desks, in that unit, throughout the agency, who see what you saw and comply in silence, without resistance or complaint. They learn to live not just with untruths but with unnecessary untruths, dangerous untruths, corrosive untruths. It is a double tragedy: What begins as a survival strategy ends with the compromise of the human being it sought to preserve and the diminishing of the democracy meant to justify the sacrifice.

A hacker explains how to make a strong password – ©Tech Insider

The full-sentence technique works like this: Think of an everyday phrase that you can remember, like “My #1 favorite thing in the world is my family,” or as Muhl gives as an example, “I bought my house for $1.”Then you take that sentence and convert it to a password by grabbing the first letter of each word. “I bought my house for $1” then becomes Ibmhf$1.

Email won’t go away any time soon | L’email ne s’en ira pas de sitôt | plerudulier

How many times have I read how dreadful email is killing business, how much time was wasted just to be able to empty one’s inbox; I may even have contributed every now and then.

Email is to remain for quite some time simply because of the way we work. If you have ever viewed presentations or tutorials of Slack which is meant to literally kill emails you may have realized that the demo scenario is systematically a unique project everybody seems to be working on at the same time. In the real life it doesn’t work that way : everybody is assigned to work on sets of projects which one rarely shares with anybody else.

Smart forms in place of data bases ? | Des formulaires intelligents au lieu de base de données ? | plerudulier

Let me be clear on this «smart form» thing and what, in my mind, it represents : one knows what a pdf form is: «Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, in…

The Financial System is Unstable !!!

The Connectivist

Triple-Dip-RecessionIn 2005 the then newly appointed at Tilburg University professor Hans Blommestein [(OECD) asked me “are very large and complex interconnected financial systems stable or not ?”. The banking world had always ASSUMED that more interconnections between their (several types of) banks and with insurance companies would make the total ‘network’ of organizations more stable, since the them current thought was that small disturbances would even out and risks could be shared when misfortune did happen in one of their investments. But from the signals from the field Blommestein was not so sure anymore if that assumption was right, so he asked me as experienced computer network architect if this was true or not. He expressed worries about the SYSTEM INSTABILITY of the banking system [1]. 

1. Sure the financial system does fluctuate and can do so suddenly and violently. As do stock markets. “Volatility” can be staggering as…
