Daily Thoughts 8/28/2011
Last night I finished reading Ghost In The Wires by Kevin Mitnick. I found it amazing that someone was willing to break into computer systems to get code simply because they were interested. I guess this is why I am not a hacker. I also was amazed that people would buy Kevin Mitnick's books The Art of Intrusion and The Art of Deception after he spent so many years in jail for hacking.
I also read some more Made to Stick. Right now, I am reading about how to make your ideas more concrete and understandable. It is useful information, but not particularly exciting.
This morning, I took another course from Lynda.com instructed by Jill Whelan, SEO Search Engine Optimization Getting Started. I have two months of training for free coming from my job on Lynda.com so I figure that I might as well take advantage while I can for free.
I also spent a bit of time on Facebook and Twitter this morning.
