Tubeless rear tire leaking 20psi/night & wheel out of true. Kudos to Halldór & Bill at Trek Bikes in Victoria. Had me back on road in 6 min for $6!
“[Everything’s] a pilot. If it doesn’t work, it isn’t a failure. It’s data.”
Dorie Clarke on reinventing yourself. But it’s good advice for life generally.
I’ll be presenting at the Pacific Northwest Intergovernmental Audit Forum (PNIAF) on March 17. I just need to spice up my provisional title a little. “Mobile Device Auditing” sounds boring 🙂
Rez Abbasi (guitar), Nitin Mitta (tabla and vocals) and Louis Simão (accordian) accompanied Kiran Ahluwalia last night. They delivered a fantastic evening’s entertainment. World-class performers. Better than the Oscars 🙂
Kiran took time to talk to us when autographing CDs later. What a warm, genuine, person. There was truly no haste, on her part, in spite of the miserable (by Victoria standards) weather. Also, I don’t recall getting a hug from a musician after a show before … other than from family members!
Thank you Kiran, Rez, Nitin and Louis. Enjoy Nanaimo tomorrow!
From the Washington Post story Hackers Hit D.C. Police Closed-Circuit Camera Network
“ransomware left police cameras unable to record [from Jan 12 to 15]”
“the safety of the public or protectees was never jeopardized”
So to be clear: Cameras — at least the ones in the article — are not for the safety of the public.
Cameras can serve other purposes. For starters, cameras can: (1) Aid post-incident investigation, and (2) help provide transparency. But I think we should be careful about always assuming they are for public safety. The distinction is especially important when we are having public debates about cameras and society “sleep-walking into a surveillance society”.
