Field notes: Bogotá
Quite excited to be in Bogotá Colombia. This city is absolutely beautiful. From my vantage point (admittedly a narrow strip from the airport to the hotel, and then a walking-distance circle around the hotel), it´s quite impressive. The streets are clean, although not antiseptic clean. Everything is super green, from the medians on the main thoroughfares (like the 11) to the local park. And to...

Botnets harvesting host machines' email content?
One of the most successful approaches to spam is when the sender creates the spam using snippets of text that are unique to each message. This can make it fairly difficult to mechanically parse what is spam and what’s real email. I noticed an interesting development recently, though. While trying to figure out what allowed a recent batch of spam through the filter, I was looking at the...

Driving traffic through being memorable
I went to the movies today (to see the sequel to Crank, which was excellent), and before the trailers they had a long series of ‘behind the scenes’ shorts on upcoming movies, interviews with actors, and related material. It was engaging, actually, and might even draw me into the theater a bit early again next time. At the end of the shorts, they showed a brief clip that said something...
Sitting at the Apple store, wanting to slap the smug out of some folks (while waiting for an *ahem* genius to look at Sam’s iPod).
In that no-man’s land between “will my bag be the last one off the flight?” and “is the conveyor about to shut off?”
