Someone has just sent me a data breach. I could go and process the whole thing, attribute it to a source, load it into Have I been pwned (HIBP) then communicate the end result, but I thought it would be more interesting to readers if I took you through the

I don't mind ads on websites as a concept, that is I don't mind the idea of a message appearing somewhere that helps the producer of said content earn a crust. However, there are other things about ads that I do mind enormously and most of them are due to

That's a very fair point David and this model only works for me because of the profile I'm leveraging. It's not going to work for many others and we really need a better ad model for that.

Last one of the year! And yes, it's summer, it's hot and I'm doing it by the pool. However, as I say in the intro, it's only a fortnight until I'll be back in London which is about as far away as you get in every sense. On a more

Almost done for the year and I've gone beach-style, if not in location then at least in attire. Xmas in Australia is all about the outdoors, the water and usually generous helpings of cold prawns so a little bit different to many places. But like everywhere else, the cyber things

This is a somewhat shorter, very tired version of my weekly update. As I say in the video, preparing for the NDC conference in London next week has been extremely taxing with two new talks and a bunch of other activities to organise. I didn't mention it in the vid,

I never used to do these "year in review" style things, but 2015 was a really foundational year for me in many ways so I wrote a 2015 retrospective. Thinking about it over the last few weeks as we approached the end of 2016, a bunch of stuff really stuck

The title says it all and the details are on their blog, but there's still a lot to talk about. Self-submission to HIBP is not a new thing (TruckersMP was the first back in April), but it's extremely unusual as here you have an organisation saying "we got hacked, we'd
