I started reading the free download version and decided to support Cory Doctorow by buying the hardcopy. I thought this was an awesome book. So many good elements to it I couldn’t really stop reading it and finished it up quickly. I know it’s for young adults but it also good for infosec folks.
I’ve found this book to be a entertaining read, easier at night then reading a full blown tech book but with all the geeky goodness.
I took the family out to see this on opening night. I thought this was a great movie with a great underlying message. From a 4 year olds perspective “we need a real Wall-E at home”. He sat there and watched the whole thing and loved it, him sitting still for that length of time is a miracle itself 🙂
I read this book because I really wanted to find the shocking truth about how banks help cyber crooks steal your money. What I found was some stories about crimes that have been committed, which I have read about before, but with more detail. What I didn’t find was much on how banks help with stealing money. It focused mostly on the Payment Card Industry and Credit Bureaus which do seem to help, but not really anything from the banking side that could actually be used to make a bank more secure.
I twisted off a cap and after waiting for some flash to load, entering my email, creating a password and waiting for more flash to load, I entered my code. I won a screen saver. I remember when you could just twist of the cap and read if you won another Dr. Pepper or not, that was much better. So now I have a screen saver advertisement, I don’t really fell like I won anything….
