Parent post is well stated.
There really is no benefit to becoming adversarial or doing anything to undermine the future success of the project. And there are many possible down sides, including your rep within that company and your broader rep.
Continue to provide them the best value you can. It sounds like right now that value might be to advise them on the level of complexity of their codebase and the level of talent and experience needed to maintain and continue development on it. Even if that doesn't change their minds, you are on record with your attempts to help them steer a better course. And then, whatever their decision, do the best you can to transition knowledge and prepare the new guy for success.
If you leave with them knowing that you did everything you could to help them make good decisions, and you did everything you could to help them be successful given the decisions that they made, they'll be much more likely to call you for the next project. Or maybe the CTO will call you when he finds a challenging project at his next company. If you help people out, even when there is no angle for you, and create a history of doing this, you'll find that people want to work with you and there are more opportunities coming your way.
If you burn these guys, and do it again somewhere else, and create a history of that, you'll eventually find that people don't want to work with you.
Building a good rep and a network of people who recognize your value and enjoy working with you is a long-term investment worth making.
The Cybersecurity Framework will be a set of voluntary standards and best practices to guide industry in reducing cyber risks to the networks and computers that support critical infrastructure vital to the nation's economy, security and daily life, according to the NIST announcement published in the Federal Register
The first meeting will be held April 3 at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md. Registration information is available here.
If you have concerns about cybersecuirty or privacy, I urge you to participate in these discussions."
Nope. Electrons and photons still moving at the speed of light, which is relatively constant. (c what I did there?!?)
Ok, mostly I'm just being a smart ass. This may improve throughput and/or latency. But our chips are running into constraints due to the fact that the electrons can only go so far in on clock cycle. The stuff is cool, but it's not going to fix those problems.
Maybe. But most of the time they don't prosecute things like this, even though they are technically in violation. This is high profile enough that it might get a different response. My bet, though, is that they let him slip into retirement as quietly as possible.
FWIW, this is what she looks like: https://www.google.com/search?q=Paula+Broadwell&tbm=isch
Forget swallowing or stuffing the c4. The new fear is surgical insertion of explosives. Body bombs. Check out these links:
Yeah, and the "who".
Their thought: "hey, well catch the bad guys who are trying to get around security!"
Reality: they catch the nerds who know how to hack barcodes and want to save 10 minutes of waiting in a security line.
But this is giving them too much credit. They are not thinking that far ahead. They are still stuck on shoe bombs (22 Dec 2001).
