Data from Word, Bot Personalities, Secure Hardware, and Launch Checklist
- Use R to Get Data Out of Word Docs — finding the relevant bits of XML in the zip file that is a .docx file.
- Lili Cheng on Bot Personalities — bonus points for not mentioning the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation.
- ORWL — crowdfunded first open source, physically secure computer. ORWL was designed specifically to prevent undetected tampering with any of its electrical components, including the entire motherboard and storage drive. When tampering is detected, ORWL immediately and irrevocably erases all your data, even if it is unplugged at the time. So be sure to carry a USB stick with a backup on it. *cough*
- Product Launch Checklist — very useful, from an excellentl PM.
