Goodbye beloved, I barely knew you.
So I can't tweet this, but ... increasingly when I am in meetings that relate to security products and the security industry, I feel a bit alienated.
It is strange when one is considered a "security expert" and then needs to hide that one thinks that 90% of security spend and a lot of the research is bunk and those resources should better be deployed elsewhere.
Hey ladies and first timers :) If you are unsure about your research or how / what to submit to @hack_lu this year, my DMs are open waiting for you! This is going to be awesome and I want you being part of it too! For the Big heart ppl, if you want to be a mentor, poke over DM! https://twitter.com/hack_lu/status/1267060380871860226?s=21
More emergencies, Internet Archive
The Internet Archive had been experimenting with a digital lending library, and when covid severely limited public libraries, the IA started allowing unlimited checkouts (which essentially mean they allowed piracy of their book scans)
This was probably a huge mistake, but now four of the biggest publishers are suing the IA
Losing this means archive.org goes down

On a related note to my CW’d toot: I have never seen a task so ridiculously impossible as a woman trying to get a decent job, according to her skills and qualifications, after being out of work for several years.
It is honestly beyond disgusting: I have seen men with 1/10th the qualifications and skills being given jobs after six months unemployment without questioning their motivation, dedication or abilities.
So approximately 5 months into the entire "running your own startup again", I can say that there are a few upsides:
1) The technical challenges are absolutely fascinating, and I am learning a lot.
2) The business lessons are fascinating, and I enjoy learning them.
3) There is something to be said about being unambiguously happy with your employers decisions.
There is the nagging worry about ever matching my last salary ;), but that is more of an afterthought.
