In this edition of the podcast, I sit down with Jeff Moss (@TheDarkTangent) to talk about all of the interesting evolutions currently going on in the Internet age. As one of the people who has watched the cyber punk culture evolve from the dark culture of hacking for curiosity, through the "dot com boom" and now into mainstream business, and he has some interesting commentary on how we've evolved as a culture and a group. We also talk through some interesting hacker vs. government regulation topics, and IPv6 of course! Listen in, and hear all the really exciting things Jeff has to say.

This is perhaps the most important podcast I've recorded to date, and probably will record for some time. The guests on my show in this episodes are not only privacy experts, but people who deal with digital privacy every day ...and are just as appalled as I am about the rapid erosion of privacy in the modern digital age. From 4Square to the automated toll collection system - you're being tracked when you tweet, drive, and buy discount paper towels at your local market ...and technology is facilitating the privacy you're willfully giving up.
STOP the madness! This episode just scratches the surface on all the different methods we're giving away our reasonable expectation of privacy, and how corporations and governments are hastening its demise.
My guests on this podcast wished to remain anonymous (lower-case A) except for their Twitter handles. Join me in thanking them for their time, thought, and insight.

This week I host Bryan Stiekes, a distinguished technologist with HP ...and not a security guy by trade. Bryan has been a part of IT for a very long and distinguished career, with a background in networking and architecture. Bryan's premise is that Information Security is at its core fundamentelly broken ...and I can't say I disagree. We discuss the different aspects of what's been wrong with modern information security, and whether this is a good time to be in the 'business' of IT.
This is a fascinating conversation for anyone who's feeling lost in IT Security ...and looking for some light at the end of the dark tunnel we've managed to wander into.
