  3. Business of Coding Podcast: Ryan King, Twitter’s Flight School Founder - Quick Left Boulder Colorado

    Quick Left Chief Product Officer Joe Stump, talks about the business of coding in this series of podcasts. Twice monthly, we will feature a new podcast with different industry experts that explore not only the challenges that face the technical side of business, but the business side of technology.

  4. Podcast Squared #187- Tim Pritlove from Podlove | Podcast Squared

    Podcast: Play in new window

    | EmbedThis week we are taking a look at a new approach to the publishing side of podcasts, specifically the new WordPress plugin and web player called Podlove. Our guest is the creator of Podlove and long time German podcast super star known for the shows Not Safe for Work and Newz of the World as well as the Metaebene Personal Media group it’s Tim Pritlove! We talk in depth about how Podlove can make publishing easier and more dynamic for podcasters as well as the real benefits it can provide to listeners especially when it comes to accessing extra content and data from a show. We also get into some of the major issues facing podcasts and some of the really top notch groups working to solve them. Here are some of the groups we discuss:

    Hate all that fiddly knob production crap? Try out Auphonic to get European radio quality sound automatically.

    Finally, a Google for podcasts, Poodle.fm is hoping to solve the problem of discovery the same way search engine pioneers figured out the web.

    The world of social network apps is to big to navigate on its own so let app.net connect you to the latest social apps that you need.

    I know those all read like advertisements, but that’s basically what we say in the episode anyway.

  5. Color Perception Switches Sides In Brain : NPR

    Scientists have known for years that people categorize colors using the left side of their brains, but a new study reveals that before toddlers know the names of colors, they use the right side of their brains to categorize them. Anna Franklin of the University of Surrey talks with Andrea Seabrook about the study.

  6. The Undercover Economist Strikes Back: How to Run — or Ruin — an Economy | Cato Institute

    In his new book, Tim Harford attempts to demystify macroeconomics in the same way his earlier bestseller, The Undercover Economist, demystified microeconomics. Using his characteristic conversational style, Harford will discuss abstract macroeconomic ideas, explaining the most common models of recessions and the difficulty of discriminating between them on empirical grounds. For example, was the crisis of 2008 driven by supply- or demand-side factors? And why do failures of the financial sector seem to have such severe economic consequences? He will not shy away from other topics, including income inequality, or the growing interest in alternative measures of economic well-being, such as self-reported happiness. Please join us for a discussion of what macroeconomists believe about the economy and of why those beliefs often seem to lead to bad public policy.

  7. Extracting keys from FPGAs, OTP Tokens and Door Locks

    Side-channel analysis (SCA) and related methods exploit physical characteristics of a (cryptographic) implementations to bypass security mechanisms and extract secret keys. Yet, SCA is often considered a purely academic exercise with no impact on real systems. In this talk, we show that this is not the case: Using the example of several wide-spread real-world devices, we demonstrate that even seemingly secure systems can be attacked by means of SCA with limited effort.

    This talk briefly introduces implementation attacks and side-channel analysis (SCA) in particular. Typical side-channels like the power consumption and the EM emanation are introduced. The main focus is then on three case studies that have been conducted as part of the SCA research of the Chair for Embedded Security (Ruhr-Uni Bochum) since 2008:

    The first example are FPGAs that can be protected against reverse-engineering and product counterfeit with a feature called "bitstream encryption". Although the major vendors (Xilinx and Altera) use secure ciphers like AES, no countermeasures against SCA were implemented.

    As a second example, a wide-spread electronic locking system based on proprietary cryptography is analyzed. The target of the third case study is a popular one-time password token for two-factor authentication, the Yubikey 2.

    In all three cases, the cryptographic secrets could be recovered within a few minutes to a few hours of measurements, allowing an adversary to decrypt FPGA bitstreams, to clone Yubikeys, and to open all locks in an entire installation, respectively.

    In conclusion, we summarize possible countermeasures against the presented attacks and describe the communication with the respective vendors as part of a responsible disclosure process.

  8. 048 – Achieving Money Zen. An Interview with Leo Babauta of ZenHabits.net

    Hi Jesse,

    I’ve really been enjoying the Podcasts, listened to them all since the beginning. They feel like a great use of my time driving to work, it’s nice to be learning something.

    On an earlier blog post you said to mention any podcast discussion requests and I have one. I am interested in starting up a home business or a side business because I am a seasonal worker and I have parts of the year when I have a lot of time on my hands and I would like to put this to good use. I have a lots of different ideas some seem a little unrealistic and would be very easy for an outsider to dismiss but then I am reminded about your own story with the YNAB spreadsheet and how you received and initially less than enthusiastic response from those around you.

    So some bullet points: Formulating your business idea, finding a niche, when to make the leap from fulltime work to your own business, getting started in general, initial success and failure, motivation and overcoming failure, your progress from your initial business idea with a time frame of how the first few years developed. That kind of thing.

    While not strictly related to budgeting I feel this might fit in with the general YNAB philosophy because while you have discussed many topics about controlling costs and minding money on the other side of the equation of building wealth is increasing income.

    Yours is a seemingly good example of a side enterprise/2nd job being turned into a reasonable living and I think there might be those of us out there that could learn something.

    P.S Bring back the YNAB book club in the forums. I’ve been learning a ton from Dave Ramseys reading list like “The Millionaire next door”
