While ranting about security, I should note the increasing number of "phishing" emails arriving in my in-box. Not just the usual stuff from Nigeria. And now, phishing robo-calls are interrupting dinner. A lot of these emails and calls are referencing "rebates." I'd say greedy scammers are getting worried about the upcoming elections and making the most out of the last few months of their 8-year free-ride, but you'd call me cynical.
In any case, The Author is going to re-boot. And that means less about politics, and more music, economics, web 2.0 & travel posts. So stay tuned. A special shout-out and thank-you to my new subscribers.
