Ask Slashdot: Is It Time For SyFy To Go Premium?

j0keralpha The entire sci-fi market has been shrinking (607 comments)

The public appetite for space travel, battles, and true sci-fi (as opposed to War of the Worlds: LA) has been shrinking for years. It's not just syfy, but every true space opera franchise has been slowly dying for the past decade or so, to be replaced by garbage like the "V" reboot. Even is syfy transitioned to a premium model, they may not get enough subscribers without the ghost chasers and such (I won't walk about wrestling).

Finding Student IT Security Placements in the Industry?

j0keralpha Financial and Insurance Services (273 comments)

These companies are both expanding their security apparatus and also are both industries known to be in love with the college intern concept. I interviewed for several security positions at insurance firms (specifically car insurance) who were hiring something like 5 or 6 security architects in one shot. Try to apply to intern programs there or at big Financial.
