SPYINT_141026_11.JPG: Can a Drone Read Your Email?
Two creative security experts designed and built this unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in their garage using off-the-shelf electronics. They wanted to prove that a drone can be used to launch a cyberattack. With only an internet connection, a hacker sitting on a beach anywhere in the world could use a UAV to intercept cell phone conversations, steal financial information, or access secret government documents. This prototype was a success and the race is now on to develop the next generation of cyber drones.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2014 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used my Fuji XS-1 camera but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Winchester, VA, Nashville, TN, and Atlanta, GA),
Michigan to visit mom in the hospice before she died and then a return trip after she died, and
my 9th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Sacramento, Oakland, and Los Angeles).
Ego strokes: Paul Dickson used one of my photos as the author photo in his book "Aphorisms: Words Wrought by Writers".
Number of photos taken this year: just over 470,000.
