Linux Journal on Scimax

Linux Journal on Scimax:

Over at the Linux Journal, Joey Bernard has a nice article on John Kitchin’s scimax. I’ve written about scimax before but for those who came in late, it’s a collection of Emacs and Org mode tools to make using reproducible research methods for performing and writing about research easier.

If you’re doing research and especially if you’re publishing your results you really should check out scimax. A good way to see what it can do for you is to take a look at its manual or by watching Kitchin’s video

I love the stuff John Kitchin has come up with. Bits and bobs can work in your config even if you’re not doing research. 

How do you manage your #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #Privacy #Policy #Security news intake?

I’m in the process of reevaluating my news feeds. The method is much the same as evaluating Cyber Security threat intelligence feeds. Is it:

  • Timely?
  • Accurate?
  • Actionable?
  • Updated?
  • Adding value?

I categorize my information intake in several ways:

  • News
  • Analysis, Editorial & Opinion (most blogs, podcasts, and personal social media feeds)
  • Technical
  • Press releases

With all of this, I find myself overwhelmed with data. Much is redundant and not adding value. Some adds value but isn’t timely. Some opinion is fopped of as news. Branded content permeates.

What sources do you use? How to you consume them? How do you value them?
