I’m going to be resurrecting this blog for a couple of reasons. The first is that I’m seeing more and more security-related topics being ignored or not explained in a decent manner. I see plenty of white-papers, etc., but very little of that information gets transmitted in a useful way to the public at large, who need to know about these issues. I’m toying with the idea of starting a Youtube channel, and a few other things. Tell me what you think below. Please note that all of these things will be security/privacy related. Currently, Project Obsidian is a pipe dream that I neither have the skill to code (I got in over my head nearly immediately due to the ridiculous complexity of the project), the skill to ensure it’s secure (I’m not a mathematician trained in cryptography….I’m literally just some dude who knows a teensy bit about it), or the assistance from others to accomplish the goal. Should I find any of those things, I’ll resurrect Project Obsidian. I think Obsidian would be an important step towards securing our future from the dangers of Big Data and Government snooping, but I simply can’t do it myself. So, at some point in the future, I’ll add another post outlining my ideas and concepts, and I’ll have a poll where you can vote. I’ll talk about one of them now, though, to whet your appetite.
The Youtube concept I’m currently working on involves myself and a someone who isn’t quite as technically minded. If he/she doesn’t understand the concept, I’ll get called out, and be able to better explain it.
