Selected comments:

  • Ben was a good speaker with great knowledge about his topic. He and Hannah played well off each other, tackling related topics and bouncing off one another’s words.
  • Even if you think you’ve heard it all before, this presentation gave more insight and more information that was very beneficial
  • We could do have more of this type of thing. I think it’ll be a valuable (and increasingly so) job skill.
  • It was superb.
  • The delivery and content were a nice mixture of internet security and managing your online profile. The format worked well with the presenters taking turns. It made the session more lively.

This would fit right into my Ten Tips to Shockproof Your Use of Social Media Lightning Talk, except that it probably takes more than 15 seconds to read.

We often take for granted (or don’t even think about) the security of hotel Wi-Fi as we travel. For most of us, the convenience outweighs the risk.

There are steps we can take to keep our computers and data safer. The folks at Information Week have published a nifty little article, “9 Tips To Block Hotel Wi-Fi Malware.” Although the article is primarily concerned with travel abroad, we should take precautions anytime we use public WiFi.
