  6. Curtain Quickly Closing on the Elio

    RobOHara.com | 1 Aug 2017 | 8:00am CDT

    It’s been three years since I first discovered the Elio. “The Elio is a three-wheeled car that runs on gas, gets 84 mpg, and when it comes out, will cost $6,800,” I wrote in April of 2014, glossing over the fact that the car will also have a 5-star crash rating. “The Elio is...

    RobOHara.com | 28 Jul 2017 | 12:00pm CDT

    The first time I saw a plastic bird being used to shoo away real ones was on top of our local grocery store. It took three visits for me to realize that the very still bird that was always perched in the exact same spot wasn’t real. For some reason, the front porch of our...

  8. The Popcorn Kid

    RobOHara.com | 26 Jul 2017 | 6:00pm CDT

  11. Vulnerability Disclosure, Free Bug Reports & Being a Greedy Bastard

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 26 Jun 2017 | 8:04am CDT

    Backstory:Most of my life I've been frustrated/intrigued that my Dad was constantly upset that he would "do the right thing" by people and in return people wouldn't show him gratitude... up to straight up fucking him over in return. Over and over the same cycle would repeat of him doing right by someone only to have that person not reciprocate.The above is important as it relates to the rest of the post and topic(s).I was relaying some frustrations to a close non-infosec friend about my experien...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 7 Jun 2017 | 9:01am CDT

    Mentoring: On meeting your **Heroes**I put heroes in asterisks because none of us have paparazzi following us around. I regularly use Val Smith's quote about even the most popular infosec person is like being a famous bowler. Except for rare exceptions, no one outside of our community knows who we are. I've broken into at least one company from every vertical and my neighbor just asks me to help configure his wifi.This topic came up because the person I'm mentoring met "a famous infosec person...

    Carnal0wnage & Attack Research Blog | 5 Jun 2017 | 9:00am CDT

    What is Hadoop?"The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.

    Nach den Konzepten Wagenburg, Strandbar, Mediaspree und Megaspree, ist die neue Runde der Auseinandersetzung um die Ästhetik der inneren Spree eingeläutet. Falls es jemanden interessiert, ich bin ja Fan des Uferwegs (beispielhaft rudimentär am Verdi-Gebäude umgesetzt), erinnert mich an das Pariser Seine-Ufer.
