Inside the battle against bad bots

1 Comment

For anyone reading the news about Ticketmaster and Taylor Swift, or Twitter and Elon Musk, the problem of malicious bots might seem insurmountable.

These automated programs can snap up concert tickets in the blink of an eye, or pose as humans on social media, among countless other mischievous tasks. Bad bots are a big problem, accounting for one-quarter to as much as one-half of global internet traffic, or even more, by different estimates. 

But they are not invincible.

That's the assessment of F5 CEO François Locoh-Donou. Seattle-based F5 is one of a growing number of tech companies that offer solutions to detect, deter, and defeat bots. 

"You beat that automation — that bad automation from bad actors — with better technology, and that better technology does exist today," he says.

Locoh-Donou joins us to discuss the issue on this week's GeekWire Podcast. Plus, his take on the economy, and the future of the physical office.

With GeekWire co-founder Todd Bishop. Produced by Curt Milton.

From: tedtalksdirector

You may need to hear this (if you haven't already): your job is not your family.

Mental wellness educator Gloria Chan Packer walks through the exercises you need to shift your perspective and redraw the boundaries between your work and personal life, so you can feel freer and more empowered.

SPOS #838 – Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher On Expertise (And Who Is Truly An Expert)

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #838 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #838 – Host: Mitch Joel. It seems like everyone on LinkedIn (which is everyone who works) considers themself an expert in something (or everything). What is expertise? Who should we consider an expert? Is there one definition to rule them all? Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher is not just an associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Science, Health, and Technology Communication at the University of Waterloo, but is also the author of, On Expertise – Cultivating Character, Goodwill, and Practical Wisdom. Much of Ashley’s current research focuses on climate change communication, and she is a member of the University of Waterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and the Water Institute. In addition to her duties at Waterloo, she is the General Co-Editor, with Carolyn R. Miller, at Genre Across Borders. Further, she served as a Member of the Board of Directors for the Association for the Rhetoric of Science, Technology, and Medicine (ARSTM) from 2019-2021 and as President of ARSTM from 2018-2019. Ashley’s research focuses on how communication practices shape the processes of science and also how diverse audiences engage with scientific and technical subjects through various communication strategies and modalities. Along with being the author of On Expertise, she also wrote Science Communication Online, and is co-editor of Emerging Genres in New Media Environments. Ashley has also been published in numerous journal articles and chapters. If you consider yourself an expert or eyeroll at those who self-describe themselves as one, this episode is for you. Enjoy the conversation…
