Funny how holidays spring up, and people often forget their true origins or meaning. Halloween (the American version at least) has roots in the Salem, Massachusetts' puritan days of the 1600’s.
We’re building out an update of our LAX Los Angeles conference center and looking forward to inviting all those IT staffers the world over with whom we’ve been connecting via video meetings—but this time in person.
Where are most of the US Military’s secrets and not so secrets ending up? Not in one of the cybercriminal hotbed countries, but in the ancient trading post on the trans-Saharan caravan route, the city of Timbuktu.
Alexander Pope famously wrote, “to err is human, to forgive divine.” It’s usually a nice, refined thing to say to someone when you screw up—the implication is that people make mistakes, and to look past those mistakes is an uncommonly gracious thing to do.
Seeing as we’re well into baseball season, I’d like to bring up the example of the winningest team in modern baseball history: the 1998 New York Yankees. Including the playoffs, they won an astounding 125 times out of 175 games including a 4-0 sweep in the World Series.

Many people, nostalgic for their 90s-era email account passwords, are having (or already had) their emails hacked. I don’t mean to date myself (a lonely pursuit anyway), but I can remember having passwords in the 90s that were quaint by modern standards—in addition to being woefully inadequate to protect against today’s cybersleuths.
