I switched on the radio to hear the evening PM programme (I live in the UK). It was wall to wall Trump; a live broadcast of the choreographed event - public spectacle, not news. Have any more been found alive after that avalanche in Italy, what is happening in The Gambia, ... ?

I'm not anti Trump, nor particularly for him. The news was when he was elected, today was just some pomp and ceremony - but not news.

Are you kidding? Nobody listens to you if your name doesn't ring bells. Publish or perish IS pretty much what makes or breaks your career as a security expert these days. You think any of them have a problem getting a speaker slot at any security conference if they so please? Or get any contract they'd want?

It's sad, but yes, security has become a spectacle. Welcome to the show, watch our CSI-esque presentation of how we penetrate your defenses with style...
