It's the last one from home for a few weeks, both for Scott and myself. Whilst I head off to the US for a couple of weeks, he's back home to the UK before other Europe travel then we'll both end up back on the Gold Coast in a few weeks time before the AusCERT conference.
This week, we're talking about how kids are so good at circumventing things like parental controls and how maybe - just maybe - talking to your kids and using some social techniques is a better (or at least complimentary) approach to hard controls. Partly as a result of that tweet, we're also discussing the rampant negativity we seem to constantly face by a small minority on Twitter. It's minor in numbers, but increasingly carries a mental weight (see the link below for context). Plus there's Trustico. Ah, Trustico, just have a listen and see what you think...
- My 9-year old found a clever way to circumvent iOS' parental controls (imagine what it's like for the average person trying to understand this stuff...)
- We're both confounded by the unnecessary ongoing negativity folks on Twitter seem intent on espousing (I'm linking to this one because it's a perfect example of injecting negativity into an otherwise happy, joyful tweet)
- Trustico has some really shady marketing going on with their certs (that's a link to Scott's post smashing the screwy - make sure you search for "nerdville"!)
- Twilio are sponsoring my blog this week, check out what you can do with Authy to add 2FA to your site (this is dead easy - do it!)
