Payments, Software, Technology – February 15, 2010
- Hog Bay Software – TaskPaper iPhone is out!
February 15, 2010 – This App is wildly helpful both on my computer and my iPhone. I highly recommend it!
- Method ~ of ~ failed by Tim Heuer – Big companies changing the English language – an open letter to advertisers
February 15, 2010 – Agreed. Wholeheartedly!
- Techdirt – Eric Schmidt On How To Encourage Innovation
February 15, 2010 – The op-ed by Eric Schmidt, that this post references, is well worth the read. If only because you are like me and will agree with bits and take umbrage with others.
- The Financial Services Club's Blog – Chip & PIN is broken (UPDATE)
February 15, 2010 – The Chip & PIN stories have been interesting both from a business and forensic perspective. The perspectives given in this location seem to be of the more balanced variety.
- cdixon.org – chris dixon's blog – Every time an engineer joins Google, a startup dies
February 15, 2010 – In the past, I’ve described myself as a “startup junkie.” In truth, this is a poor description. Instead, I find myself “addicted” to being in a situation where a difference can be made with my work…and where collaboration is key to success. This can occur at a large organization, but is often specifically fostered in a startup. This quote, however, this quote stunned me. It is beautiful and disturbing and a wildly interesting perspective.
“Whenever I see a brilliant kid decide to join Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, or Google, I think to myself: a startup just died, and as a result our world is a little less wealthy, innovative, and interesting.”
- StorefrontBacktalk – The Heartland Data Breach Fight Continues
February 15, 2010 – Now that the initial furor, at least from a media perspective, has died down…continuing to track the Heartland story is rather intriguing.
- Anton Chuvakin Blog – "Security Warrior" – ShmooCon 2010 – Our PCI DSS Panel
February 15, 2010 – THIS!
“even if we “do everything perfect with PCI DSS”, we will only solve the problem of cardholder data…not any other data (like SSN or key IP) and not any other security issue. Indeed, if PCI DSS magically “just works” and payment card security “becomes 100% secure” , a lot of security work will remain.”
