CASC this morning was all about HIPAA. RUCC discussing security nearly in parallel. Cybersecurity risk management around research is hitting the big time.

Quantum Experiment Threat Modeling

My TV is getting a client-side SSL path validation error... I guess I'm impressed that it has security implemented.

Interesting discussion on "transformative research" - what it means and how to achieve it.

Nice piece sanity checking cyberwar hype.
"Cyberwar Is Already Upon Us." No way. "Cyberwar is coming!" John Arquilla and David Ronfeldt predicted in a celebrated Rand paper back in 1993. Since then, it seems to have arrive...

"The CRAPL: an academic-strength open-source licence" http://feedly.com/k/17RoMsF
After contemplating the problems with academic software and licensing, Matt Might, an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah, has developed the Community Research and Academic Programming License, or CRAPL. In Matt's words, this is a licence that "suitably warns the user and aggressively ...

Going to be interesting to see if anything comes of homomorphic encryption (encrypted computing).
Currently there is no practical fully homomorphic cryptosystem, that is, there is no secure cryptosystem that allows for the homomorphic computation of additions and products without restrictions. The...

Excellent store. I often have to get shoes ordered due to having large feet and they always do so happily and without a commitment on my part to buy until I've tried them on. This makes them consistently my first choice for shoe shopping.

Top notch rooms and breakfasts. Sitting out back in the garden was an added treat. J&R are great hosts and take extra steps to make you feel at home. The location, at the transition from downtown Louisville to the historic district, is convient to downtown and the track.

Certainly among the best pulled pork I've ever had and a very good value. Good choice of sides with grits, mac&cheese, slaw, cornbread, beans - all very good, plus some others we didn't try. An out of the way place well worth the effort to find.

A couple dozen beers on tap (a good fraction local) and a large, large bottled selection of beer. Good looking wine selection, plus some infused mixed drinks that were very good. Entrees we tried - fish'n'chips and gnocchi - both very good.

Good chicken salad sandwich, SW BBQ salad, iced tea (some fruit flavor that I now forget) and coffee drinks.

The salad and soup bar was very good with a variety of german and not-so-german salads, a nice Italian Wedding soup, pickled herring, and bread. A good value. The entrees were only OK (Rouladen was not terribly flavorful, sitting too long I think, dumpling was a gooey mess, all topped with way too much heavy gravy; breading on schnitzle was too heavy; red cabbage was good though) and very overpriced. Next time I'd do the soup and salad bar with a simple sausage or sandwich.
