In & Of Itself extends its New York run through May 18, 2018. Last week we met Ms. Tomorrow in Panera… who invited our friend back to that night’s show. Get yourself a ticket to this one. You want to understand what that sentence means.

Finally, this is a fantastic story on social engineering past security. This is interesting stuff with a lot of real life security lessons.
