Home for a week after the PASS Summit before heading back out to Seattle on Sunday for the Microsoft MVP Summit. It's the one week a year where I get to attend an event as an attendee and not working a booth or helping to manage the event. That means, for a few days I get to put my learn on and immerse myself in all the new stuff coming to the Microsoft Data Platform.
As usual, here's a bunch of links I found on the Intertubz that you might find interesting, enjoy!
I've been digging around for a day or so on this new threat and from what I can tell it is nothing new. This is how malware works, and the user still needs to allow for the code to have access in the first place (click a link, etc.). I can't imagine who among us falls for such attacks.

We now live in a world where Microsoft hardware costs more than Apple hardware. Oh, and it's arguably better, too, considering the Surface still has the escape and function keys.
Am I the only one that's a bit creeped out by this? To me this seems to be getting close to having machines think, and work together, and I think we know how that story ends.
Beautiful in its simplicity, these tweets could serve as management 101 for many.
I wasn't going to let anyone use the SQL Sofa at PASS last week until I had a chance to test it first for, um, safety reasons.
