And of course I’ll be singing for you and all the smarty-pants business and arts school students in the house too!  *YOU CAN RSVP & WATCH LIVE RIGHT HERE!* And quick!

Daria Musk3,819,701*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time.

The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family.

Things are going to get really really ugly...

These are zero-day exploits, there is nothing that you can do about them. The WannaCry ransomware that I talked about not long ago uses only two of these NSA Hacking tools, what is coming is going to exploit all seven of them.

Beware! This new EternalRocks malware is much more dangerous than #WannaCry___Things are going to get really really ugly...

There is a lot of propaganda nowadays. If you see the full picture rather than the cropped one, you will see that it doesn't look weird at all, it looks perfectly normal.

These are probably old news to most people but I finally got around to read about the "ramsomware" issue that I keep hearing about. So, a global cyberattack that locks Windows files and people has to pay or permanently losses all of their files ( https://www.cnet.com/news/wannacry-wannacrypt-uiwix-ransomware-everything-you-need-to-know/ ).

And it seems that if you are using a Windows version older than Windows 10, you either pay to recover your files, or you pay Microsoft to update to Windows 10, or you pay Microsoft for a patch to protect your computer.

So yeah, why are you guys still on Windows? The cookies must be abundant in the Dark Side...

Microsoft could have slowed the devastating spread of ransomware WannaCry.

Lets not forget when Sony sold music CDs with a rootkit inside, a program which upon inserting the CD into a computer, installed itself, render the machine unable to copy CDs, and send to Sony information as to what the user was listening in his/her computer. And it also hide itself from the system. That was in 2005.

Eventually they released a "fix", that only unhide the rootkit, installed more unwanted software and collected e-mails of the users. Both the rootkit and the "fix" aditionally created vulnerabilities in the affected computers that were further exploded by malware writers. They sold 22 million CDs with the rootkit.

This was a big scandal back in the day, but what Microsoft is doing nowadays I believe is a lot worst, and nobody seems to mind. It has been proven that even if you set up everything so Microsoft doesn't track what you do, the computers... more »

Eventually they released a "fix", that only unhide the rootkit, installed more unwanted software and collected e-mails of the users. Both the rootkit and the "fix" aditionally created vulnerabilities in the affected computers that were further exploded by malware writers. They sold 22 million CDs with the rootkit.

This was a big scandal back in the day, but what Microsoft is doing nowadays I believe is a lot worst, and nobody seems to mind. It has been proven that even if you set up everything so Microsoft doesn't track what you do, the computers still communicate with Microsoft servers. We can not see what goes there as it travels encrypted, but we have tools to she the traffic on a network, we can see how much and where the traffic goes.___

Wow. That was one of the most devastating news that a woman could have gotten. Southwest Airlines went completely out of their way to handle it, and what they did is nothing short of amazing. That is truly taking care of your customers.

Click-bait title though, they did not "force" her, they asked nicely. And for a very good reason.

Ransomware is a problem that, if you don't prepare for it and for what I have experienced, most people don't prepare for it, or even think about it, it can hit you and the process of recovery is going to cost you (oh yeah, I do charge for that), if it is at all possible.

A good way to handle it is a mix of secure access to your infrastructure, hopefully you are in something that allows logging in using cryptographic keys rather than username and password (and you have your private cryptographic keys secure), and that doesn't allow root access from outside (sudo ftw).

And also it is good to have constant backups, but not manual, but automated. In 2011 I wrote an article myself about rotatory incremental backups with a combination of rsync and cron. I could update a little that article, but nowadays I combine that one, with integrity check of files on the server, and if... more »

I could update a little that article, but nowadays I combine that one, with integrity check of files on the server, and if something changes (plus I record the access to the server), then it takes a backup and puts it there and changes the access to the server. It's complicated, but it works, of course it happened that at the start I updated a WordPress and it rolled it back and banned me, lol, not permanently and I only needed to go to a place with a different IP to unban me and then I stopped the script, updated, updated the backup, and let it go.

Nowadays, the world of cybersecurity, it is basically fully automated systems working 24/7 looking for vulnerabilities, any vulnerability (gosh, WordPress has plenty of them, I hope you also have yours fully updated, I use my WordPress replacement for some things, but it is not ready yet, it is secure tho) against fully automated systems looking for potential threats and handling them (and here machine learning has proven to be amazing, there is normal use, and there is abnormal use, machine learning can find the patterns of normal use and then it is easy to see what is off-the-patern).

It is a fun world, if you have the time, those looking for exploits sure have it, and it is damn fun to find how things work.___

I have to say that it gets creepy some times; to not understand where some results come from. I don't forget the face that came up one day when I was trying to graphic something, I wasn't expecting that and I still would like to understand where did that come from.

There has been a lot of developments, research and experiments by many people. I like to understand how everything works, but I have given up on the idea that I will get to understand everything that it does.

To point I want to make is that, just as they learn from seeing our actions, there are machines learning how we act when we are not being watched, they see it, and they learn, and humanity is not that nice under the cover of anonymity...

My friend's son died, and unfortunately she is not in a finantial situation to give him a proper burial. I can not do much at the moment, and those who know me know that if I had the possibility I wouldn't need to be sharing this, but I can only share it now and hope that it can reach someone who can help her.

My bad situation is nothing, going through a finantial crisis and not having money to bury your children, that is a higher level of desperation.

Not someone who was not hungry...
When you are starving and have nothing, some times you try things that someone sitting on a table full of food would never consider getting anywhere close to their mouths. Some die as a result of it, but some survive, and eventually get to have offspring who will evolve in a way that finds the taste palatable. That is why we find our food to be so tasty: survival of our ancestors.

This is an excellent talk. I'll do a few more changes in my life, although I have been breaking my dependency of the phone.

This is why my phone is on silent throughout the day. [video]
One of the best talks you'll watch today.

It's also why I want Lior to spend less time in front of the TV and PC, and more time learning how to deal with failures (soccer), how to strive for something and get it (snake) and mostly - get bored and entertain himself.

He's doing great. I'm proud of him. And I'm glad we have a path for encouraging a life of joy and fulfillment.

Now, I know.. I'm not perfect. I still sleep with the phone by my bed (promise +Simon Sinek last night was the last night ;) and I still check it often when I'm out and about.

But, I'm getting better.
AND.. I have a little munchkin to remind me when I'm not :)

I didn't share the Facebook reminder, but it was exactly one year ago that I asked for donations of computers that were no longer in use. It was nice, I ended up disassembling them, and I ended with a couple of semi-functional computers, then I made a cute network with them, and I had my little cluster ^_^

Not one of the computers had everything: some lacked RAM, some a hard disk, some a dvd reader/writer, some blue tooth, and some a nice graphic card; but all of them combined made a nifty supercomputer ^_^; and I did math, some AI, some data analysis, even a bit of 3-D. The left overs ended at Øre, as they should be disposed =)

I loved doing that, and the big drone did fly following a 3-D path made as an animation in Blender (but I didn't fly it outdoors for legal uncertainty), and the small drones are actually hacked. That story came to an end before I finished it. Maybe... more »

This would be amazing in most places, remove the bias, look only at the qualifications.

Canada announced a pilot test Thursday that would see names removed from applications to work in its civil service, hoping this will eliminate any biases in the hiring process.

The aim would be to have a more diverse and inclusive civil service, the government said in a statement.

The so-called name-blind technique - in which managers are not told applicants' names - is already practiced by a number of European organisations including the British civil service.

This is a very important issue that we are facing, not just as a civilization, but also as the "intelligent species" in our planet. We need to face reality, because it happens whether we like it or not.

We developed the entire scientific method to try to understand our world and to give us a better chance of separating what is true and what is not.

Everyone I encounter speaks about how the weather used to be. It has changed, and we know it, or should know it. Reality doesn't care about our opinion or the things that we believe in, reality is reality, period.
