Ask Slashdot: How To Bequeath Sensitive Information?
I registered deathapi.com a while ago, after an acquaintance passed away, for this reason specifically. At the time, I had imagined a system that you OAuth against w/ all of your relevant accounts w/ full admin access, and specify a recipient of those keys after some pre-determined length of inactivity (a year, say). The idea still has a lot of relevancy in my mind, but it's so morbid to think about.
How Does a Self-Taught Computer Geek Get Hired?
I was in the same boat as you, having had a decade of experience making web sites and programming for NSCA Mosaic, but with no schooling to speak of that was relevant, no-one in my home-town would take a second look at my resume. I moved to NYC (but know that SF is similar, regarding qualification judgements), and found that everyone I talk to in the tech industry cares about what you're capable of, not what's on your resume. Now I'm a director at a fortune 500, and teach at one of the most prestigious design schools in the country. I still don't have a degree.
Why IT Won't Like Mac OS X Lion Server
Fantastic find. Makes a lot of sense, and basically means the app that ships with 10.7 server is an upgrade for the "basic" server administration app if you use the simple 10.6 configuration, but that all of the underlying services we know and love continue to exist, and just need a different app to admin them. This is no different than how it worked with 10.6, except now the apps don't come with the OS.
