Some items I've found interesting recently.
- Large scale CMSs tend to get a bad name but if you're a news organisation it's something you need and it seems like Arc is becoming the CMS of choice.
- The search for lost cities of antiquity is a nice, relatable, illustration of how to use quantity of data to compensate for lack of quality.
- I really like this use of a Chromebook as a "burner" laptop especially for situations where you know physical security is guaranteed to be compromised - such as border crossings.
- The Australian government's reaction to a filing cabinet of papers ending up in a second hand shop is a classic example of how not to legislate security.
- Gizmondo's internet traffic capture from a smart home shows that next to no thought is being put into consumer meta data protection.
- This podcast explanation of how the army plans combat operations is a good look at a well developed system to come up with the best plan in a high stress, high stakes environment. (No plan survives contact with the enemy but without a plan nobody survives contact with the enemy.)
