Food Chain Project coming to Amsterdam

When you are in Amsterdam in the coming month, make sure to go and check Itamar's latest art project called "Food Chain Project". He has made an incredible exhibition of plaster molds from everything he consumed in a year.

Itamar actually used a christmas gift from another friend Gabe Bauer, that I got him in the states one year to make this popcorn piece. An Mi-Ah another talented artist has been helping the replication of all the work. It is amazing the detail of the popcorn on these molds. Little behind the scenes note there.

Bitcoin Explained in 3 minutes Video

There is a lot of buzz nowadays about bitcoin. Some people are saying it is a good investment. But I'm sure you are wondering how it works. I've been following bitcoin on and off for a couple of years now, and it seems it is starting to tip into the mainstream media with lots of rumors running around it. Before you get caught up in the rumors, have a look at what bitcoin is. This is a great video that explains how the system works. Many people are switching due to the distrust that is forming around defaulting and corrupt banking systems. Could bitcoin be the answer, or just a stepping stone to a new type of currency?

How to hack a former employee's LinkedIn account

Linkedin_Chocolates

This is a surprisingly easy way that employers can hack into a former employee's LinkedIn account. They can change anything they want, including password and the former employee wouldn't know until it is to late. This was a discovery I made today when...

I received a phone call from one of my former colleagues. She was having trouble changing information on the company's LinkedIn page. Seeing as how I used to be one of the admins, she tried to login with my company e-mail. At one point  I had added my company e-mail as a contact. I no longer use that e-mail and thought the account was deactivated. However, like with most companies, the mail account can be remade or retrieved.

Now it is important to note that I originally registered with a different e-mail to linkedIn and had a different primary e-mail address than my company e-mail. What I did not know, was that if you have an e-mail address associated to your profile account, you can login using that e-mail as a username.

So she had my username. Then the password was all that was needed. For this a simple password recovery sent to the company e-mail was all that was needed to reset the password and voila, she was in my account. But unfortunately I was no longer admin of the page, so she had to start all over. She was nice enough to call me and tell me what my password had been reset too. To be honest I was really amazed that she was able to do this so easily as she is not someone who I would call technical.

So how to you keep your old employer from taking your account? Make sure to remove any past e-mails from your account. This took a little searching to try and find where it was.
