You can now 3D print directly from Mathematica or the cloud! Stephen Wolfram, MacArthur Genius Grant winner and PhD by age 20, has just announced his company’s latest version of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language. They’re available for both desktop and cloud. The former means I have to free up some space on my hard […]Read More Wolfram Announces Version 11 of Mathematica and the Wolfram Language
The front page of the Daily Mail 25 June 2016. The paragraph in the image above reads: “It was the day the quiet people of Britain rose up against an arrogant, out-of-touch political class and a contemptuous Brussels elite. Read the Mail’s incomparable writers of the most tumultuous event of our times” That first sentence […]Read More Why I Voted for #Brexit #Leave #Out – And Why I’ll Never Regret My Vote (Long Post)
Picture from sigstr.com. It’s that time of year! Time to make predictions for the upcoming year, and as I like to do, I like to try and make them in my field – cybersecurity. These are just my guesses, speaking for myself – I am in no way representing my employer or anyone else. Blockchains […]Read More #Cybersecurity Predictions for 2016
Last year I predicted six trends for cybersecurity in 2014. Botclouds not botnets – the idea that malware command and control infrastructure would start to become more cloud based. Cryptocurrency surprise – the idea that things like Litecoin and Dogecoin would be mined by more malware instead of Bitcoin due to the difficulty in mining […]Read More How Did I Do On Last Year’s #Cybersecurity #Trends Predictions?
It’s 2015, and once again I’m going to take a look at what I think will be the trends in cybersecurity for 2015. I’m going to focus on all of them all at once this time, instead of an individual post devoted to each, since it took me so long to do that in 2014. […]Read More #Cybersecurity #Trends for #2015

I can’t say that will change, but I’m going to have another […]Read More I Get to Celebrate Father’s Day Next Year!
Picture from novelnovice.com. Having read all the Hunger Games books, I decided I would watch the first of the movies. It was actually very well done, which was surprising. Typically, movies adapted from books tend to be quite poorly done, because the books often contain a depth of information that’s just not possible to contain […]Read More Movie Review: The Hunger Games
Images from kickstarter.com and wolfram.com respectively. Along the lines of my post yesterday, I’ve come across two examples of additional technology that I think are very cool. One is hardware, and the other is software. The first is a kickstarter.com project for “Your Personal Flying Robot”, otherwise known as a pocket drone. I’ve linked to […]Read More Great Technology is Awesome #futurism #technology
Picture from 79er.com. As I get older, I have begun to appreciate the concept of the “User Experience” (UX) – the idea that things should be designed well and that they should be imagined with their end-user in mind from the start. It’s a concept that has been at the forefront of my work-life lately, […]Read More Great UX is Awesome #futurism #technology
Image of the G20 nations from wikipedia.org. The idea of bank secrecy is coming to an end. As governments continue to run out of money, they are continuing to look for ways to squeeze every last cent out of any revenue they can. The OECD member nations will now “implement a global standard for automatically […]Read More Are Banks Safe? The End of Bank Secrecy (h/t @zerohedge) #agorism
