  • Not all cyberattacks can be guarded against.

    Not all cyberattacks can be guarded against. There is a thriving nation-state market for 0-day vulnerabilities and with “IoT” now becoming ubiquitous as well as a true Wild West in programming standards, the question isn’t “if” but “when.” Coupled with Israel bombing a Palestinian cyber corps we’re entering an era where I fear cyber will simply allow war hawks to make an excuse of cyber attacks and we enter a brand new era of geopolitical instability.

  • While I agree that this is appalling, at the same time: if there are no charges, there is no criminal scrutiny. If there is no conviction, there is no legal route to NOT hire someone.

    While I agree that this is appalling, at the same time: if there are no charges, there is no criminal scrutiny. If there is no conviction, there is no legal route to NOT hire someone.

    Social pressure only goes so far. You want to put the fire to people like this, you REALLY DO need to bring down the law. I dunno, maybe in the worst case we create an open source “predator” database, but then how to evaluate legitimate claims if there’s no criminal investigation? It just doesn’t work.

  • But an education as John Dortmunder suggests would omit the fact, that the entire field of geometry as we know it today was spurred by the need of Pharoah to precisely collect his taxes. And the lack of a broad education would also disabuse practitioners from detecting fraud.

    But an education as John Dortmunder suggests would omit the fact, that the entire field of geometry as we know it today was spurred by the need of Pharoah to precisely collect his taxes. And the lack of a broad education would also disabuse practitioners from detecting fraud.

    Let’s not leave out, that the progenitor of accounting rests in Algebra, which was also an invention by polymaths who were poets. I don’t have a “liberal arts” major, I’m computer science, but without exploring the history of my discipline, I wouldn’t know of Ada Lovelace or Charles Babbage, not would I consider the Abacus as the first computer.

    Technical science, without the humanities is educational masturbation.

  • Well then...

    No reason for alarm, but it’ll be interesting to see if they can trace the origination points.
