Sadly, I wasn't able to join the podcast this week. Preston and Mike did an awesome job without me! They talk about the NSA interception and modification of US-made hardware products.

Microsoft is set to open a Transparency Center in Brussels where government customers can review Microsoft's source code. This is an effort to reassure some key customers that their software does not contain backdoors from the NSA and GCHQ. 

I am not sure how this would work for customers. Is this a visual inspection only? Can these customers use their own tools to audit the code? Is it possible to "snapshot' the state of the code and review it later for changes? Is there too much code to review effectively?
Microsoft On the Issues is the Microsoft blog on technology policy and corporate affairs. On this blog, Microsoft shares thoughts on how the computing revolution can accelerate economic growth by enabling companies and individuals to increase productivity, collaboration and job creation. In addition, issues such as privacy, piracy and public affairs will be addressed.

Spaf in Discover magazine...
 
"Discover" magazine ran a year-end article on cybercrime and security.  It features an interview with me, along with an interesting picture of me inside the "Conte" supercomputer at Purdue.

They actual interview went on for about an hour.  Of course, it was cut down by the editor to only 5 Q&A, but I think they did a good job of selecting out a few of the major points.

The magazine requires a paid subscription so I can't post a copy of the article itself.  However, you can probably find an issue in a library, or maybe a friend subscribes, or if you are really curious, you can subscribe.

Of course, if you don't want to subscribe, you can still download the picture to make a dartboard or line your birdcages!

The article intro and photo can be found here: http://bit.ly/1rZRF0N
