Passwords

Tonight on GeekNights, in light of updated NIST guidelines for password best practices, we talk about the current state of passwords in 2017. Sure, 2-factor is important and so forth, but what about the passwords themselves? Are you using passphrases instead?

In the news, big names are backing the royalty-free AV1 codec, Pokemon GO Fest was a technological disaster (just as much as it was an event planning disaster), MS Paint is dead, Snopes might be in trouble, but it's not clear what that trouble is, an evil VC-funded firm is undermining open source projects, and the next GeekNights Book Club book after Dune is The Fifth Season!
