Paul's Stories

Larry's Stories

Jack's Totally Rad Stories

  1. Ramon Krikken responds to the backlash against his WAF comments. Worth a read, he makes some good points, and doesn't simply cop out and blame the journalist for the tome of the article.
  2. Twitter Transparency Report An interesting look at requests for user information, and takedown/removal requests received by Twitter.
  3. Feeble data breach bill is feeble It may sound good, but it isn't. This would preempt data breach laws in 49 US states and territories, and doesn't even set a deadline for disclosure. This is A Very Bad thing disguised as a good thing.
  4. But there is a move to strengthen SEC reporting laws At least Sen. Rockefeller thinks we need more real disclosure.
