If you never did malware analysis before, the material presented can be overwhelming.

It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).

Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.

The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.

And the bond between them is as human as it is electronic. But recently, as I handed down my old i Phone 3G to him to use basically as an i Pod touch. A headline immediately stood out: “In China, microblogs finding abducted kids” with the subhead, “A 6-year-old who was snatched when he was 3 is discovered with a family 800 miles away.” Apparently, the occurrence of reclaimed children through the use of China’s version of Twitter — and other online forums — has become triumphant news over there.

First, on my way to go sit down and read the newspaper at my coffee shop, I got a message from my 10-year-old son, just saying good morning and letting me know he was going to a birthday party today. We both installed an app called Yak, so we could communicate with each other when we’re apart. I’m reading about the father's tears, the boy’s own confusing set of emotions, the rapt attention of the town and country, and I’m again marveling at the human side of the Internet.

The network/app operates in a similar way to many dating sites: there are "like" functions, photo browsing, profile building, and ways to interact and chat.

The app focusses on accountability to encourage respect and uses social network analysis for making connections.

As we have now laid witness to in recent news, the Internet has quickly become the atom of cultural media; intertwined with our familial and cultural bonds, and destroyed only at great risk. As advanced today as a sharpened stick was a couple million years ago.

I think if we search our own souls and consider our own personal way of navigating, we know this is as true personally as it is globally. Looked at through this lens, perhaps we should re-frame our discussions about technology from how it is changing us to how we are using it.

Even when we’re not here, the room is drawing a lot of power.
