Nothing gives my wife the Screaming Meemies like dates in spreadsheets. Unless she formats the target cell in advance as text, the spreadsheet will turn a perfectly innocent, non-date string like 23/2/6 into '23-Feb-2006'. When she types 6420-11-3, according to both LibreOffice Calc and Gnumeric, she really meant 3 November 6420. And nothing she can do will persuade the spreadsheet to re-format '23-Feb-2006' as 23/2/6. Once a date, always a date. Our house regularly echoes with "I HATE spreadsheets!". But there are workarounds...

When security researchers Adam Caudill and Brandon Wilson publicly released attack code two weeks ago that takes advantage of an insidious vulnerability in USB devices, they argued that publishing their exploits would get the problems fixed faster. Now they've released a partial fix themselves-albeit one that's so messy it includes coating your USB thumb drive in epoxy.

Data and Goliath is about digital surveillance, its scope, implications and what you can do about it. You don’t have to be a tech-person to want to read this book. If you’re a participant in the digital age (who isn’t?), I think this is one book you’d want to read.

How do you find the right open source project to jump into? Here's a guide based on my jouney to find the right fit. In the guide, I wrote about doing your research by casting a wide net, then evaluating yourself (your skills, your goals, and your time). In this evaluation to find the right fit, I looked at my motivations and skills, made a list of goals, and named a few target projects. Because this isn’t my first rodeo, I take a good, hard look at my track record. What can I learn from the ones that didn't stick to find the one that will? I notice patterns I can avoid and see how they line up against my new list of goals and skills. Then, I evaluate four open source projects and their communities to see if they might be a good fit. See the winner at the end!
