Oct 11 | Summer reflections

As it so happens it takes about a month for me to have the time to shift gears between one thing and the next, and as such it’s high time for me to put down to pixel the kinds of amazing adventures I’ve been able to have this past summer. I started my internship at […]

Apr 22 | My iPhone tracker log on video

On April 14, 2011, Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden discovered that iOS4 on the iPhone was covertly tracking the user’s location on the cellphone, persisting that information across backups and restorations.

Dec 3 | A little bit more focus

This is one of those posts that sound more like a rant, but I hope the future me will someday look back on it as a snapshot of who I am today, (like this post). As I continue to evaluate what it is I find most important to my life and what I want to […]

Mar 11 | Scandalous

New York governor Eliot Spitzer has been named as a client of Emperor’s Club VIP, a high-end prostitution agency, after a FBI wire-tap caught him with 23-year-old call-girl ‘Kristen’ last month in a Washington hotel. The headlines have exploded over the scandal, in particular because he made a name for himself as State Attorney General […]
