I’ve been meaning to load up my presentation that I gave at BarCamp a few weeks ago, but it kept slipping my mind. I had a decent turnout, made harder that I was running against one of the more popular panel session!

My session really did pose more questions than it answered, and one of the suggestions made during it was that we ask Simon McGarr to take over the topic at a future BarCamp (hopefully more about that soon!). It’s a fascinating topic that is really only rearing it’s head now.

A related article showed up on Gizmodo yesterday about how to crack a Windows password – while it’s something that can be used for wrong-doing, it’s something that we need to be able to do in the case of the death of a partner….

PowerPoint is available here.
