When we came up with the Friday Summary, the idea was we’d share something personal that was either humorous or relevant to security, then highlight our content from the week, the best thing’s we read on other sites, and any major industry news. The question is always where to draw the line on the personal stuff. I mean, it isn’t like this is Twitter.

Hopefully this next story doesn’t cross the line. It’s not too personal, but especially for those of you with kids, it might bring a smile.

This morning I was getting my 20-month-old ready for daycare when I may have let loose a little toot. I’ve always known that is one of those things I’ll have to… put a cap on… once she got older and knows what it is. But I’m practically a vegetarian, and that comes with certain consequences.

Anyway, it went like this:

Me: [toot]

Daughter (looking me in the eye): “Daddy pooped!”

Me: Er.

Anyway, yet one more thing I can’t do in the comfort of my own home.

Nope. This has nothing to do with security. Live with it.

  • Rich: Verizon launches VERIS site to anonymously share incident data. I’m on the advisory board (unpaid) and a bit biased, but I think this is a great initiative.
  • Mike Rothman: Indiana AG sues WellPoint for $300K. $300K * 10-15 states could add up to some real money. This is just a reminder that getting your act together on disclosure remains important, unless you like contributing a couple hundred large to your state’s treasury (and everybody else’s, eventually).
  • Adrian Lane: All In One Skimmers. And yes, it’s really that easy. On a positive note, this may be the only piece of electronic gear not made in China.
