"the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software"

Why not $8? I'm sure there is a way bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

Like damn, it is depressing how toxic the culture around morally superior, meritocratic minded people can be.

Say what you will about large tech companies (and I say a ton), but at least they are clear about being driven by profit and act accordingly.

In episode 1 we talk password managers. I’ve received lots of replies mentioning Bitwarden.

I do not recommend Bitwarden because it uses Google Analytics in the apps.

Web developers want to build websites. They want to use Git to do that. With JAMstack, everyone has become accustomed to the idea of pushing a git commit and getting the new build/release. That’s why I built WP Continuous Deployment.

Researching for a future episode: how do you feel about employee monitoring software? Why or why not?

Please boost for bigger sample size.

This is for a future Your Secure Life podcast episode. My local tech association has a talk coming up presented by a company that makes employee monitoring software.

I’d like to do an episode (and a talk) on why that’s bad.

I have my reasons. What are yours?

For me, probably 96 as it was the first time I could vote. I spent the next 10 years or so after that trying to figure out who I was before any of it made sense to me though
