Fri, Jun 10, 2016 by Zuly Gonzalez Recognized As One of Maryland's Women in Technology Leaders

I’m honored to be in such great company. The Maryland Department of Commerce published a list of 18 women that are leading the charge for women in technology in The State. They recognized standout women leading technology companies, conducting critical government work in technology, and breaking new ground in developing new technologies.

Tech Faceplant: Dropbox Infinite

Tue, Jun 7, 2016 by Tech Faceplant: Dropbox Infinite

Last month, Dropbox pulled back the curtains on their next new major feature, titled “Dropbox Infinite”. However, the details about how they were going to implement this feature left the majority of the audience dumbfounded. This is another one of those occasions where tech companies make a decision against the outcries of their customers, and even in the face of that backlash, just chug happily along.

Dropbox Infinite sounds like a pretty cool idea. It would make your Dropbox storage area appear as its own drive in your OS. It’s an idea that few people would complain about. However, when Dropbox revealed that they would implement this with kernel mode extensions, people’s heads started exploding.

Google Chrome is now the most popular web browser in the world, with an estimated 45% of all website views. Google claims that security is a top priority, which is why they push frequent automatic updates and use a sandbox. But an even higher priority for Google is speed.

Sometimes they need to make the choice between speed and security, and this article lists two cases where they chose a minimal speed improvement at the expense of introducing a much larger security risk.

In October, Ian Duncan, intelligence and military reporter for the Baltimore Sun, interviewed me for a story about former NSA employees that left the Agency to start their own companies. Titled “When NSA employees leave to start their own companies,” the story looks at several Agency entrepreneurs and examines the challenges facing the NSA in retaining the top notch talent they helped to train.
