Ep 1386: Back to the Nokia Future?

Having been involved with podcasting since the beginning on Nokia smartphones from the 2000s, I often think about how I miss those old phones. But it’s really not the phones themselves I miss, but…something else about that time.

Ep 1381: Dystopian Fiction?

A lot of the dystopian fiction I’ve read, including It Can’t Happen Here isn’t seeming like fiction anymore.

Ep 1380: Lacking a Shared Context

We used to sit around and listen to music. Or at least watch the same TV shows. Or, to go farther back, we sat around the campfire and shared stories. These days…we do none of that, and I think we’re worse off for it.

Ep 1377: Government Efficiency?

I’m actually shocked at how quickly I got my passport back from the local Social Security office…and got a new Social Security card. Considering I couldn’t even go into the office.

Long ago, this site used to be the home for a well-visited FAQ site on Check Point firewall products. This site has served many other purposes over the years, but is currently the home for the PhoneBoy Speaks podcast.

Some other projects I'm doing include: CheckMates, Check Point's user community site, PhoneBoy's Security Theater, a blog where I discuss computer and network security-related topics, as well as PhoneBoy Says, an infrequent personal blog where I discuss more personal issues.
