Mix on Campus Wrap Up

Great line up today.

We had a chap from Qantm speaking up the semantic web, virtualisation technologies, mashups and more. He was followed by the Faraday Media guys talking about APML, but more generally talking about some of the issues surrounding a Web 2.0 startup in Queensland. We had a great presentation by Nick Hodge on Mashups using PopFly, I have created some already - watch out for them on here soon. Silverlight got a background explanation and also some cool demos - mind you PopFly uses Silverlight also. We also had lunch hosted by Microsoft, and I scored a cool shirt. In the morning there were 2 web development companies presenting some information for graduates who may be looking for developer roles. Clearly Speedwell were a cutting edge design company  while JSA was far more of a design company, firmly ensconced  in flash technology.

Everyday Security

Meryl Evans has written a rather long story on everyday security. She
discusses barriers in the way of organisations getting their security
right and some solutions to these problems. I think the most important
thing from this article are the ten cost-effective security measures
Meryl talks about. These are:

  • Firewalls with an Intrusion Prevention System
  • Secure email filtering gateways
