Social Engineering: Anatomy of a Hack – CSO Online – StumbleUpon. This is an easy read and amazing how easy it was for non employees to get inside. I wonder why companies are so lax about security?
All Things Workplace: When Systems Save Lives. Really. – StumbleUpon. It is interesting that even though it melted the plastic it didn’t cause the rug to catch on fire. They were lucky.
I had someone email me today on StumbleUpon and say that they frequently vote on sites and ask me to follow them. Normally I would ignore that but I went to the profile and saw things that she liked that interested me. So I added her. Then 5 minutes later I get an email that said she couldn’t add me to follow for some technical reason. I delisted her.
Why bother to send people a message if you aren’t serious about following them as well? Why play games? Or better yet, figure out why you can’t add people and then contact the new guy.
StumbleUpon has been suggesting pages for me the last two weeks and the majority of them have been in error. They are either domain expired, or 404 pages. Are other people experiencing this?
I report those pages faithfully but I seem to get more error pages not less of them. Is it possible that SU uses people who report error pages, to cross check the error pages that other people have reported? I feel that the more I report error pages, the more error pages I see. Am I going crazy? Where is Nomad when you need him?
Feed Validator for Atom and RSS – StumbleUpon. I checked mine and it said it was valid. It suggested a change but the error was due to an embedded and copied link for Hulu. Since I don’t have many Hulu videos, and Hulu changes its links frequently it is most likely that after some time this video will be invalid. I will monitor this and correct.
Build an Atom – StumbleUpon. This is very cool. You can see a graphic of the structure of atoms. Could be useful for anyone who has to study the periodic table.
