Shit Show Episode #7

IS it Navajo? Klingon? Esperanto? or heavens help us is it Qwghlmian?

No…it’s geek.


Seriously, what the hell is it with our industries ability to make words up, spew out acronyms and do our level best to flummox and alienate anyone NOT like us? WE have a communication problem and yet we keep on inventing more and more obscure words and phrases to describe what we’re doing.

So, this week we’re going to unpack that shit.

We’re going to get out the translators AND break down some of the stupidity that is geek speak and translate it TO plain and simple English that everyone can understand.

We’re NOT dumbing it down, because that implies the non-technical folks “won’t understand” but we WILL demystify, deconstruct and break down some of the language barriers

Oh, and along the way we’re going to help us build a compendium that I’m in the middle of doing!

Join us OR die in a sea of acronyms that rivals that of the Military!!

The Security Shit Show is LIVE tonight (6/25) @ 10pm CDT -

Killer Robots? Oh Shit.

If you missed last week’s episode, the Security Shit Show crew tackled the difficult discussion about morals and ethics. There are two ways to treat you ears and/or eyes (not likely) to Episode #5, "Moral and Ethical Shit in a Shitty World":

It was an really good episode. A little bit of shit-slinging, but mostly just great discussion and opinion.

If you like our shit, you should subscribe to our shit. Subscribe on YouTube or whatever your favorite podcast thingy is.

Rumor has it, the shit will only get better and better!

Episode #5 - Killer Robots? Oh Shit.

Alright, we’re ready for the next episode of the Security Shit Show! Shout out to a helpful (and maybe even loyal) viewer Robert Hodges for calling our attention to a neat article titled “Should 'Killer Robots' Be Banned?”.

Do killer robots sound like a good idea to you? Think about it...

Certainly, Chris, Evan, and Ryan will have a few things to say about the topic.

Catch us live on Thursday (6/11) night at 10pm CDT. If you miss the live show (other obligations, tired, etc.), keep a look out for the recording on the Security Shit Show YouTube Channel.

This is a topic fitting for any shit show!

Shit's Confusing - Episode Four

If you missed the live version of our last episode (#3 – Ego? Fuck Your Ego), we got you covered!  The video recording is here, and the podcast is here. If you want to stay up on these things, consider subscribing to our YouTube Channel or Podcast and get updates (like you don’t get enough email already, right?).

Episode Four Topic

It’s Chris’ go this week and he’s a little (maybe a lot) torqued about all the shit going on in the world right now. Our topic this week is ethics and morals. So far, we’ve affectionately given the episode name “Moral and Ethical Shit in a Shitty World”.

Thoughts on the topic:

  • We talk about ethics BUT let’s talk about ethics AND morals.
  • We’ve seen SO much shit from ALL sides in the last week, some of us are tempted to grab a keyboard and “help” out. Is this stepping over an ethical boundary? Is this stepping over a moral boundary?
  • Is hacking the scammers to retrieve lost money moral, ethical, right, or wrong?
  • Is hacking Snapchat to find someone kid right or wrong?
  • Who gets to decide what’s moral, ethical, right or wrong?
  • How do we navigate a simple boundary, grey area OR is it simply being able to wake up in the morning AFTER handing over video footage of brutality in MSP to “people” and being able to look at yourself in the mirror and justify it, and then WHO gets to rule those justifications?
  • Does it all come down to a “moral compass” and what the hell IS a “moral compass”?
  • What’s the tipping point? I won’t raise a finger if someone kicks the dog, or breaks down my neighbor’s door, but if you touch a hair on the head of any one of my family members, I/we will ensure ALL your digital worlds come tumbling down.
  • Who gets to decide what’s right, wrong, etc.?

This will get juicy, emotional, and controversial (maybe). We've got these tough question to cover and lots more to consider. We’ll get to the bottom of some of this shit and we might have to let some of the other shit just lay for now.

Regardless of what happens in this episode, remember that our primary goal is to be constructive. We want to help whenever and wherever we can; however, sometimes when things get raw, we’ll say things you might not agree with. Just know our hearts are on the side of good.

This is sure to be entertaining. Tune in live Thursday (6/4)night at 10PM!

See you at the Security Shit Show!

Episode #71 You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well, I'm the only one here. Who do the f*** do you think you're talking to? Oh, yeah? Ok.

Every time I encounter an ego in our industry, I immediately think they are channeling their inner Robert Denerio. Or when I run into a vend...
