3 WannaCry Talking Points to Win Security Buy-In

By this point, most tech practitioners — and nearly all security practitioners — know about WannaCry. In fact, you might be sick of people analyzing it, rehashing it, sharing “lessons learned” about it, and otherwise laying out suggestions — in some cases, contradictory — about what you might do differently in the future.

What makes a good speller (or a bad one)?

By the time he was 6 or 7 years old, Sameer Mishra was a pretty confident speller. His memory was sharp, he liked to read, and he actually enjoyed the weekly tests at school. While his parents drilled his older sister, a National Spelling Bee competitor, he’d angle for his own list of words.

Researchers create high-quality graphene with shockingly simple supersonic spray system

Graphene, as metal hexagon things
By using a supersonic nozzle more commonly found at the business end of rocket and jet engines, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have devised a very simple and inexpensive way of producing high-quality, defect-free sheets of graphene on a range of substrates (materials). Other methods at producing large quantities of defect-free graphene have so far been very elusive — and, for the purposes that we’re interested in (replacing silicon in microelectronics), anything less than defect-free just won’t do.
