Jim: See? In another twenty-five years, you'll be able to shake their hands in broad daylight.
Taggart: God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

The cost of the Cloud is cheap. And for IT, we just say "not as secure, but if you're okay with that, go ahead" and when the Cloud services fail, or get breached or whatever, the CIO can simply say "not my fault, that was your choice". The real cost is hidden.
It's the security of the infrastructure that matters. A company is rarely going to lose their shirt because someone found their marketing material in cyberspace, two weeks before it would be released. Of course your mileage may vary.
Representative Justin Amash unsuccessfully attempted a late bid to oppose the bill, which passed 325-100. According to Amash, the bill "grants the executive branch virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American""

Turns out he thought We're up all night to get lucky sounded like a nice riff about gambling across the border.
Yet, despite common ground with some of the findings of the Committee’s Study, we part ways with the Committee on some key points. Our review indicates that interrogations of detainees on whom EITs were used did produce intelligence that helped thwart attack plans, capture terrorists, and save lives. The intelligence gained from the program was critical to our understanding of al-Qa’ida and continues to inform our counterterrorism efforts to this day.
Just when will the CIA get off its high horse of believing that this program, in its former form, or any newer form, produces value for the American citizen or state as a whole? They need to stop defending this indefensible stance that it's okay as long as the CIA is in charge of capturing, detaining, violating rights, and denying everything it does or has ever done.
Felon = committed a felony, distinctly worse than "several prior misdemeanor convictions". Did you? If not, you probably shouldn't describe yourself as a felon.
My first instinct was if you can't correctly describe your indictment under the law you're not going to do very well in at any data-centric job. In IT, a proper description of the nature of a system, problem, solution or outcome is highly contingent on using the right words. "CPU Cycles" won't do when "Memory Leak" is the correct statement.
One might think that desert sand would be a ready substitute, but its grains are finer and smoother; they don’t adhere to rougher sand grains, and tend to blow away. As a result, the desert state of Dubai brings sand for its beaches all the way from Australia. Huge sand mining operations are emerging worldwide, many of them illegal, happening out of sight and out of mind, as far as the developed world is concerned. "We need to stop taking sand for granted and think of it as an endangered natural resource," concludes Gillis. "Beach replenishment — the mining and trucking and dredging of sand to meet tourist expectations — must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, with environmental considerations taking top priority. Only this will ensure that the story of the earth will still have subsequent chapters told in grains of sand.""
