As we start to ramp up for TechEd US things are already getting weird. I shouldn’t be surprised, but two guys that I know well and expect most of the people who read this also know of created a video redolent with inside jokes. Scott Hanselman and Rory Blythe star in this very short video that parodies a semi famous encounter in which our favorite germophobe (Rory) met Don Box in the bathroom at a past TechEd.
Enjoy the video, and if you don’t get it then you need to start going to TechEd!
A recent article about terrorists being behind continued attacks on our energy companies in an attempt to disrupt the power grid made me realize that this should serve as a wake up call for the rest of us. If you are running a business related web site in the US or one of its allies you have to think about what happens if the bad guys decide to go for the softer targets. Remember when bad relations with China released a wave (almost a plague) of defacement hacks against US based web site?
When you read a story like this, just think about what the hacker with a political agenda might turn toward if they get too frustrated (and I hope they do get very frustrated) hacking at our vital national interests.
If you have ever seen him speak then I don’t have to go any further than the title. His handle of ActiveNick fits him on so many levels and his blog is no exception. He has posted very regularly and I expect great things from him with lots of cool and insightful things on mobility and architecture.
