Interesting Links 6 January 2014

Back to school for me today after a two week Christmas break. I got some rest mentally and physically and I’m ready to go. It’s going to be a great year I just know it. And to start it off here are some interesting links to share.

Hal Berenson does a great job of explaining why Data Breaches ARE a big deal. Need to explain it to people/students? Point them here.

Did you know that Lyndsey Scott, a Victoria’s Secret model, is also a serious computer programmer? No, really!  Interesting how she writes apps for other models to use.

Hadi Partovi @hadip from @codeorg on how to get more women in computing. I’m constantly impressed with how much Hadi “gets it.”

Did you see my post last week about how Girls Who Code is expanding in 2014 Looks like this program is really gaining some traction. For more details sign up here

Have you heard that the second/latest iteration of @medialab & @MIT_CSAIL's @AppInv is now entirely run from the browser.

CS teachers in or near Boston: check out the @HackMIT event at . Being held at Google’s Cambridge MA office.

Even Tech Crunch is asking the question -  What Makes Girls Fall In Love With Computers And Code?

Interesting technology video on @YouTube The Smartest Elevators with destination dispatch is all about how making elevators smarter can help with customer satisfaction and improve through put.
