Barbarians at the Gate!

Today we had a 'specialist' come by to give a seminar on computer security.  I thought it might be a useful way to spend an hour, and I went in with high expectations.

Warning bells went off when the dude giving the seminar looked about 70, and the intro slide to his presentation featured a picture of Dokdo.

He rambled on about the need to protect corporate and private information, pretty general stuff that anyone should know.  But then he went off about Evil Foreign Data Thieves who targeted the peace loving Korean people.  I thought he was going to talk about the need to stop being so Explorer and Active X reliant, the reasons why so many data thieves are able to flourish in Korea to begin with; instead he started to make some point related to how North Koreans were the happiest people in the world.  At this point I walked out before I could hear where he was going it.  I'm a busy guy, what can I say?

I'll ask someone about it tomorrow, but judging by some comments overheard around the water cooler, it was a huge waste of time.  Most of my coworkers have given up on Explorer; Chrome seems a favorite.

Maybe I should get into the seminar gig.
