What's Your Mission? Start Ups, Soccer, and Selfishness.
Bubble Within Blocks Growing up as just another white kid from the suburban surroundings of Flint, Michigan I was pretty ignorant. Even though I lived ten minutes from the city of Flint, I couldn't have been farther away mentally. To me, Flint was the place...

The Internet of Us
It'll all be OK, little guy.  It's Not Me, It's You I've been analyzing and building Internet of Things technology since 2009. At the time, my wife Jessica and I were living in a condo building in Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood. Nick DePetrillo and I ha...

Start-Ups, Information Security, and Budgets

So I Guess This Happened
LZO Exploit, You Say? What's that, you say? No functional exploits for LZO or LZ4? I guess both are proven, now. Sorry, folks, but we had to wait for a bit to let people get patched. We're kind to the Internet community like that.  In the next few days, we'...

Hacking CERN - Exploiting python-lz4 for Particles and Profit
A Race Lost Before It Began Obviously the LZ4 issue has gotten a lot of attention, but unfortunately for the wrong reasons. A side effect of the negative reaction from the author of LZ4 is that some packages dependent on the compression algorithm thought th...
