6 Months of Security Links #2011

leave a comment »

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

Anonymous Flame Service

leave a comment »

I was just directed to NiceCritic, the anonymous way to send a helpful message, such as:

  • The aroma of alcohol on your breath is apparent.
  • A breath mint would be beneficial on a regular basis.
  • Your constant coughing could be a distraction.
  • Your yawning seems to be particularly loud today.
  • When eating, I suggest using a fork or knife instead of your fingers.

This seems like a nice method to flame people anonymously.

IBC 2008

leave a comment »

This year from the 12th until the 16th of September the returns to the in Amsterdam. I missed last year’s exhibition and conference, though I’d arranged tickets for myself, so I’ve made myself a promise that I would go this year.

IBC exhibition “… showcase[s] the latest technology and foremost business ideas in broadcasting and new media.” The conference focuses particularly “… around mobile multimedia, IPTV and 4th generation communication systems. [And] events like What Caught my Eye will cover both production and mobile exhibits, and will once more be open to all.

This year I hope that they have finally implemented the 2D browsing system, similar to the iTunes interface, with live streaming in the peripheral screens on a Set-Top-Box. When I went in 2006 they (can’t remember which company) were faking it using a PC, as the current STBs didn’t have a powerful MPEGX decoder chip to be able to decode multiple streams simultaneously. They were using MPEG2, if memory serves, I’d obviously prefer MPEG4.
