The percentage of PCI-compliant organizations doubled in 2014. But most won't stay compliant.

According to my research, streaming listeners are uncultured, sheltered, poetry-hating philistines. You know, like everyone else. 
Forgotify serves as an entry into an internet wormhole, into the many songs that streaming listeners forgot, and it shows us a lot about our habits in the process.

Agree with this certification strategy from Sander Van Vugt (SUSE, RHCE...)? What else would you recommend for a strong career in Linux?

It may not be a conspiracy, but it sure will make a good movie someday. 
 
Why did it take researchers so long to learn about Heartbleed?
Heartbleed is a vulnerability in some implementations of OpenSSL. Because OpenSSL is used by approximately 66% of all active websites on the Internet, many experts have called Heartbleed one of the worst security bugs in the history of the Internet.

I wrote a thing about how music nerds and beer nerds are the same (for better or for worse).

You can lead an IT pro to the cloud, but you cannot make him trust it.
The latest Microsoft decision to end the MCM and MCA certs was unexpected and left many IT pros wondering if it was part of a forced push to the cloud.
