Good, catchy uptempo pop track discovery.

Good song, and infosec theme about someone's girlfriend wanting to unlock his phone to read emails, etc. Hence the "4 digits" she wants.

Dinis, I think you are the model of openness, both on a technical side with sharing your trials/tribulations/passion/ideas but then also on a personal side, such as this post.  The great thing about that mindset is how being open not only lets others learn from you, but you can then get feedback from others and learn and grow yourself.  

Openness, even with failures, is something I think is really important for people who want to grow and advance since others -- people who are not as open don't get as much feedback so don't get course corrections unless they stumble upon them at some point.  And this presents a barrier to growth that open people won't have.  I plan to write up a blog post on this at some point -- this might be more motivation to get that done sooner.

So, keep doing what you're doing; I think we'll all be better for it!  

Along the lines of peer support in this open environment, I think that them having awareness that you are putting yourself out there on a daily basis and that makes you more vulnerable to criticism/attack that may/may not be warranted, and helping them understand specific ways that they can support you would be beneficial to you.

Your line of thinking can span the fine details all the way to abstract conceptual issues, which means you have the challenges of communicating effectively with others at a different level of technical and/or abstract thinking competency as you.  I know from the first time I heard you speak, I could see that you had a very unique paradigm/lens that you looked at things from that there was going to be a disconnect until the audience members had a similar paradigm shift as you had to look at things from a similar (new) perspective.  To some extent, it can be like communicating with Flatlanders in another dimension (and I find myself in that position with some of the things you raise).  It's something security folks have to deal with that at varying levels just communicating risk to the business for complex technical issues.  I see it as another area of growth opportunity to always improve upon that I also struggle with; striving to more succinct and clear as a way of being more effective overall.
