This is a good start, but only checking the certificate date doesn't mean that the website patched their OpenSSL. I still give them kudos for doing this.

Interesting perspective:

"A company is a modern-day tribe. Hiring someone for your company is akin to having a child," Sinek said in a well-received TED talk Friday. "If you have hard times in your family, would you ever consider laying off one of your children? We would never do it. Then why do we consider laying off people inside our organizations?" 

Some truth in it I guess although not all people are a fit for every organization. You can't always be right in the recruiting process.

I think it only works in certain industries. Or you just need a very slow and secure recruiting process.

After arguing with (arguably) allies in science communication I was fed up. Fed up with the attitude that unattributed images are just a (small) sacrifice for the net good of science communication to the populace at large. Fed up that photographers, cartoonists & illustrators are considered by many to be lesser professions than scientists & educators. Fed up that rapid image sharing (oh I’m sorry: “curation”) can trample so many creators and yet lead to fame and fortune.

Interesting proposal for an awareness campaign about the importance of imagery in our media and the disrespect for photographers in terms of licensing images. Any thoughts?

Heartbleed is as bad as it is possible for a security flaw to be.

Heartbreaking moment in Rotterdam zoo.
Heart-breaking pictures have emerged of the moment a giraffe said goodbye to a terminally ill zoo worker, who had spent most of his adult life cleaning the animal's enclosures.
