I wrote a piece at Freedom to Tinker about blockchains and voting: Blockchains are a helpful primitive, but they don't solve the problem. https://freedom-to-tinker.com/2017/09/12/blockchains-and-voting/

Houston-area computer friends: The Human Factors Research Lab at Rice University and security researchers at the University of Michigan need participants for a SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) usability research study. Participants will be asked to configure secure Linux web servers using two different approaches, answer questions about them, and complete surveys. The study will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete, and participants will be paid $50 for their time. To be eligible you must be 18 years of age or older, have normal or corrected-to-normal vision, and have working knowledge of UNIX-like operating systems and Internet infrastructure. If interested in participating in the study, either e-mail hfresearchlab@gmail.com or call at (713) 570-6807.

If you would like to verify the authenticity of this study, you may call (713-348- 5038) or email (claudiaz@rice.edu) Dr. Claudia Ziegler Acemyan in the Department of Psychology at Rice University.

If you have questions pertaining to your rights as a research participant, or to report objections to this study, you should contact Stephanie Thomas at Rice University. Telephone: 713-348-3586 or Email: Stephanie.D.Thomas@rice.edu.

The Truth About Cars is running my piece on Ford/Toyota's alternative to Apple CarPlay / Android Auto. In short, it's going to be a computer security nightmare, but at least it probably won't work very well. http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2017/01/smartdevicelink-introduces-target-rich-environment-car-hackers/
