It’s not about yourself anymore; we’re all connected.

Great interview! Runa Sandvik is a badass. Here’s another one of her greatest hits: https://www.wired.com/2015/07/hackers-can-disable-sniper-rifleor-change-target/

Also, this podcast reminds me of one of the LFI lectures we did last year with Micah Lee from The Intercept: https://vimeo.com/295657318

Holy sh*t, that’s scary about the rifles. Vimeo didn’t load; something about the magical forest is out of sorts. (I’ll check later.)
