Linkedin is one of the many social network I never got into. After I was recommended by a friend that it was the best way to get a job, I opened an account. Filled up my profile information and subscribed to a few interesting subjects. It didn't take long before a swarm of spammy messages invaded my inbox. Unsubscribing to a single one was an event on its own. By adding friends and strangers from my contact list, I learned of some new skills that I had. I didn't know I had them, but my peers were all ready to endorse me and validate my knowledge. It was exciting. Potential employers will look at all these feats and will fight over me like the last glass of water in the desert. Of course, that was only true in my mind.
Success. A word we repeat everyday. We all convinced ourselves that success is the opposite of failure. It has become synonymous to happiness. If we don't succeed, then we are certainly failures. We are not happy. But comes a day you ask yourself an important question: What is success? Most of us are too quick to answer and often do no more than associate it with money and popularity. But is that all there is to it?
Free Wifi has become a common thing today. When you head to the airport, or to a coffee shop, you have the option to connect to their free Wifi network. The advantage is you save bandwidth with your cellular data plan which can become quiet expensive if you go beyond your allocated monthly bandwidth. It is convenient.
The problem with locks is that there is always a key to open them. No matter how secure you make them, you still have to make it accessible to the person who owns it. Because of this feature or flaw, anyone with the key can open a lock.
Social media is the business of sharing ideas not worth doing but appealing to spread. Everyday there are some fantastic comments, ideas, and pieces of wisdom shared on social networks. These receive, in social metrics, tons of supporters.
When I was still in college I had a question that no one wanted to answer. Every time I asked, the teacher or student will pretend they didn't hear it and just change the subject.
Let's face it. 99 percent of us have no clue how encryption works. As a programmer I understand some of the inner works, but they are too complex for me to implement myself. Security is hard even for experts, it is very hard for me. But think about the people who are not versed in technology but have to pass laws for it.
