I am indebted to the always helpful and extremely informative Lesley Carhart @hacks4pancakes for many things but in particular for spending 90 minutes on a crazy day explaining ICS security for my book. Here's an excerpt of our discussion.

Crypto.com, which froze withdrawals yesterday, announced that someone hacked the platform for $15 million in ether (4,600 ETH). This money is now being laundered through Ethereum mixer Tornado Cash in batches of 1,000 ETH coindesk.com/business/2022/0…

Think about this next time you give that pass to that toxic person because they're a 10x engineer. It's a debt, not unlike technical debt.

Just got a confirmation email that I ordered my free Covid tests. I did not order them yet. Someone used my name and one of my emails, and ordered them to an address in a different state. Not sure what to do right now, but I have a bad feeling I’m not the only one.

Everyone else is still debating if we should or should not add “arts” to STEM education programs, and while I believe the arts are tremendously essential, I’m over here wondering why we can’t just say that we’re failing to adequately teach kids anything but sports and reading.

Isn’t that what that means, though? When we have to make concerted efforts to re-teach or supplement all areas of education relevant to any competitive careers, doesn’t that mean that they’re all being neglected?

In the real world we do all sorts of totally normal things to protect our privacy. We send our mail in envelopes. We lock our doors. Nothing about this is remotely strange to anyone. Encryption is the absolute best tool that allows us all the ability to do the same online.

covidtests.gov seems to be semi-live (sometimes it says ordering starts tomorrow, other times it links to the order page). It seems to be uneven about how it handles apartment buildings, with some people being rejected if someone else in the same building also ordered.

This gives Microsoft a $292.7mil incentive to investigate and find cause to terminate Bobby Kotick. That’s not even counting all the good press that would come with it.

In an email, Crypto[.]com refused to confirm the Peckshield tweet estimating that $15 million of user funds were stolen yesterday. They stand by what their CEO said, that no user funds were stolen
The @cryptocom loss is about $15M with at least 4.6K ETHs and half of them are currently being washed via @TornadoCash etherscan.io/address/0x6e121…

Elle gave a keynote at PancakesCon on Sunday. It was absolutely awesome. They absolutely crushed it. The PancakesCon volunteer video editors are working feverishly to get it edited, captioned, & posted as soon as humanly possible. Promise me you will watch it.
Replying to @ElleArmageddon
My sincerest gratitude to @hacks4pancakes @mxshift @RayRedacted @abaranov and everyone else who not only worked to host a lovely virtual conference, but who also bent over backwards to make me as low anxiety as I possibly could be, and to @breanneboland for the sweetest pep talk.
