i'm panicking a bit tonight, because i need to get a billion people (or more, ideally) to read this, but i can only reach a few thousand. this article isn't just dan geer at his best, though it is that. here's a snippet:

"In an Internet crowded with important parts of daily life, the chance of common mode failure is no idle worry — it is the sum of all worries."

The Need to Test for MSIE 11
That was 5 minutes ago. It's still shutting down. Glad for virtual machines. I see Microsoft is claiming that this is the fastest browser and the most secure. Anything else? It look like ***, that is certain.

" MSIE is an important part of Windows." 

This is incorrect, sorta. It is ONLY important because back in the day (circa windows 98) made it impossible to remove it, and threatened companies like HP, IBM, and Compaq with NEVER selling them Windows again if they included any other browser but IE. 

Meaning, if HP sold you a Desktop Computer with Windows 98, and HP also installed Netscape, they would violate that, Microsoft would never sell them Windows again, and that would put HP out of business. Its called "Anti-Trust". They still do that to this day, unfortunately.

The other side of the coin. Bitcoin, that is
"A hacker or hackers accessed the servers in order to generate enough computing power to create bitcoins, a digital currency, according to a news release from the university."

Security of VoIP phone systems comes up short
"VoIP currently has two standards, H.323 and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), that are vying for the top spot (shades of Betamax versus VHS)."
Is this accurate? How much is h323 currently deployed?
What do you make of the arguments about security?

Unlike circuit-switched telephone networks, VoIP is software based and introduces vulnerabilities like any other software package. Learn what the weaknesses are, and what to do about them.

I've seen it! I used to have a Polycom VVX-1500 dual standard. Like I said, you still find h323 in room systems.

Aaron Sorkin "Apologizes" for Newsroom
I wish it could start over, too, Aaron. Here's why. We've been watching the West Wing again recently and I'm convinced it is one of the most brilliant artistic efforts in TV history. I also recently watched Sports Night and thought it was decent for about 4 episodes. It's very Sorkin and has most of the elements I detest from The Newsroom, with several excellent actors. On the other hand, I did like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (again, good casting) and could have had more of that.
Sorkin distilled the initial originality of his dialog from Sports Night into something great in both West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.  Then came The Newsroom which had everything bad from Sports Night, particularly, as many fans would agree, in the high school romance parts. Sorkin has had brilliant actors on these series, and Jeff Daniels is no exception, he's high up on my list. I've seen him do everything from idiotic comedy to tear-jerking kids and animals movies and he's as fine an actor as you could ever want. 
I hope the final season (three) of Newsroom is at least palatable. And will he then go on to try something else?

So cities already services by fiber get more fiber. Cities with no fiber get none at all. That makes no sense.

WebRTC and Why Amazon is a Huge Winner
And it's not because of Mayday.
You really should follow +Tsahi Levent-Levi if you are interested in WebRTC and/or communications. When he's on, as in this one, he's on! When he's slightly "off", he still writes plenty of compelling arguments.
