How can we trust the internet of things?

Originally posted on Gigaom:

The internet of things (IoT) promises us a world of intelligent fridges that automatically order groceries from the supermarket, smartwatches that relay our blood pressure to the doctor, and connected ovens that preheat when they see that we’ve left work. But amid all the breathless speculation about our connected future, little attention is being given to how we will ensure that the internet of things is safe.

Cisco predicts that by 2020 there will be 50 billion connected devices around the world, all communicating with a variety of systems, databases, people and machines. This represents a hugely expanded network of potential vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, the nature of IoT communications makes the consequences of a successful attack even more harmful.

Who are you, really?

We need the ability to establish the true identity of any device that connects to the internet, and any system or person that communicates with a device. Without…

Mramor.
Taj Mahal, ovaj svjetski poznati spomenik
načinjen je od mramora.
Mramor (latinski iz grčkog) je stijena nastala
metamorfozom karbonatnih prolita
(sedimentnih stijena vapnenaca i dolomita) pri uvjetima povišene temperature i litostatskog
tlaka.
Mramor je zrnate (granoblastične) strukture i
homogene teksture, sadrži kalcit i/ili dolomit, a
od primarnih nečistoća u sedimentu nastaju
metamorfni minerali (fosferit, pirokseni, tinjci). Škriljavi varijaritet mramora bogat
filosilikatima naziva se cipolin.
Mramor se rabi u kiparstvu i graditeljstvu, lako
se reže, obrađuje i polira. U likovnoj umjetnosti
je cijenjen zbog svoje mliječne boje,
poluprozirnosti i toploti koja podsjeća na ljudski dodir.
U antici najznačajnije građevine i skulpture
nastale su od čuvenog mramora s otoka Para
(grčki: Parosa) i brda Pentelikona.
U Italiji je cijenjen mramor iz Carrare od kojeg
je izrađen i Michelangelov David. Brački mramor (pučiški kamenolom) je cijenjen
u cijelome svijetu te su mnoge građevine
koristile upravo ovaj kamen (od Teodorikovog
mauzoleja u Ravenni…

Novi podsjetnici na ugašene ljubavi u Muzeju prekinutih veza

Muzej prekinutih veza

Kako je nedavno Zagreb postao druga najbolja destinacija u Europi, za očekivati je da će u grad uskoro nahrupiti turisti željni onom što im je takva titula obećala: povoljan smještaj u centru Zagreba i nezaboravan provod kojeg će prijateljima i poznanicima prepričavati mjesecima kasnije.

A nakon što pronađu smještaj u Zagrebu i udobno se smjeste, sigurni smo da će dobar dio njih pohrliti u sad već glasoviti Muzej prekinutih veza koji je ljudskom toplinom osvojio mnoge ljude u Hrvatskoj, ali i svijetu. Ovaj je muzej prije dvije godine zasluženo osvojio titulu najinovativnijeg muzeja u Europi, a čini se kako ne namjerava živjeti na staroj slavi već neiscrpno radi na tome da svojim posjetiteljima uvijek ponude nešto novo i svježe.
