Reputations are Real
Quite an interesting incident happened this evening, which I feel compelled to share. A colleague of mine asked me, while I was at work yesterday, if we could connect on LinkedIn. I said that’d be fine, and sent him an invitation. This evening, he accepted it, but also noted that someone else had created a LinkedIn account using my name and face.
Mnikr at ACM CCS 2009: Digital Identity Management
I was pleased to be able to present the Mnikr project at the Digital Identity Management conference at the ACM Computer and Communications Security conference today. In addition to being one of the best academic security conferences, it was fun for me to see several of my professors from Hopkins; in addition to my advisor, I was able to see Professor Rubin and Professor Monrose, the latter of whom has actually moved on to UNC-Chapel Hill, but who was presenting work with some of his students from Hopkins. A great time, all around.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been working on a fun personal project: I’ve been building a wearable computing rig.
