Well, at least #anonymity is cool again but that makes us all criminals. :/ - https://io9.gizmodo.com/privacy-is-the-ultimate-crime-in-the-new-scifi-thriller-1825367647
Awesome idea... if you're not a geek or an engineer or in security or a gamer or basically any person who works in dimly lit spaces: https://deals.kinja.com/logitechs-solar-powered-keyboard-never-needs-fresh-batt-1825327081
Thanks to everyone who volunteered at, presented at and generally supported #BSidesSF this year! It was a great event. I'm glad to have met so many folks and enjoyed discussing our plans for the #DayOfShecurity.
I know there was a lot of interest in the #steampunk wrist-mounted war driving kit I was wearing and trust me, as soon as I figure out what the next steps are with it, I will definitely let you know.
See you all next year!

This hasn't been officially announced yet but there's an upcoming event in #SanFrancisco for #women in #technology, #engineering and #security. The name of the event is the Day of #Shecurity. Here is the flyer that will be going to #BSidesSF this weekend.
If you or someone you know is a #woman in the industry, then you should definitely check out this event as it's for a very good cause. 11% is pathetically low! We need more women in the industry!

One thing which bugged me about the Facebook hearing yesterday which I don't think I've seen mentioned.
Zuckerburg whilst listing off a bunch things that are unsuitable and should be removed from facebook mentioned self harm amongst racist hate speech and and threats of violence.
For many Facebook will be their main connection to their support network of friends and family.
This effectively severs the ability of people to talk about self harm with their peers, leaving them further isolated.
I am not sure what the applicants applying for a student assistant position think it says about them if they a) cannot read the details, or b) they choose to ignore them, but to me it means they only want a job, not this one.
