Friday Eating & Reading

by Jenny


What I’m eating and reading this week:

On the dinner line-up: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches with Salsa Fresca, one of my most favorite summer meals. (How to Celebrate Everything owners, page 158; for everyone else, here’s a version that’s close.)

A new science podcast for kids (ages 5-10) from NPR: Wow in the World

How to raise a reader.

Dragonfruit Vodka Tonics. Could these be prettier?

Crash Course: The most excellent resource for curious kids.

What to eat before, during, and after a workout.

Anyone read Murakami’s latest novel?  Would love to hear your thoughts. (Remember Murakami?)

Fascinating: The Right Way to Practice.

What leaving social media taught one writer about our broken news cycle.

The Cloud Egg Craze: Have you tried it?

From the Archives: Hatch Burgers

Lately, I’ve been loving (and using) this Eater list of fast casual restaurants in Midtown constantly.

The Joys of Eating Out With a Toddler (not satire!)

The New York Public Library 2017 Summer Reading Challenge

How a hard partying chef got in the best shape of his life.

On a personal note, after working from home for seven years, I finally joined The Workshare Revolution. And now that I’m here, I’m not really sure what took me so long. Check it out.

Lastly, I’m traveling for a bit starting next week and hope to chime in, but if I don’t, see you in a few! xx

Researcher Finds Critical OpenVPN Bug Using Fuzzing

by EditorDavid
"Guido Vranken recently published 4 security vulnerabilities in OpenVPN on his personal blog," writes long-time Slashdot reader randomErr -- one of which was a critical remote execution bug. Though patches have been now released, there's a lesson to be learned about the importance of fuzzing -- bug testing with large amounts of random data -- Guido Vranken writes: Most of these issues were found through fuzzing. I hate admitting it, but...the arcane art of reviewing code manually, acquired through grueling practice, are dwarfed by the fuzzer in one fell swoop; the mortal's mind can only retain and comprehend so much information at a time, and for programs that perform long cycles of complex, deeply nested operations it is simply not feasible to expect a human to perform an encompassing and reliable verification. ZDNet adds that "OpenVPN's audits, carried out over the past two years, missed these major flaws. While a handful of other bugs are found, perhaps OpenVPN should consider adding fuzzing to their internal security analysis in the future." Guido adds on his blog, "This was a labor of love. Nobody paid me to do this. If you appreciate this effort, please donate BTC..."

Google Will Stop Reading Your Emails for Gmail Ads

by John Gruber

Mark Bergen, reporting for Bloomberg:

Google is stopping one of the most controversial advertising formats: ads inside Gmail that scan users’ email contents. The decision didn’t come from Google’s ad team, but from its cloud unit, which is angling to sign up more corporate customers.

Alphabet Inc.’s Google Cloud sells a package of office software, called G Suite, that competes with market leader Microsoft Corp. Paying Gmail users never received the email-scanning ads like the free version of the program, but some business customers were confused by the distinction and its privacy implications, said Diane Greene, Google’s senior vice president of cloud. “What we’re going to do is make it unambiguous,” she said.

This is terrific news. Not just because it’s a good policy change in and of itself, but I take it as a sign that Google’s leadership is starting to realize how much damage they’ve done to the company’s reputation by playing fast and loose with their users’ privacy.
