If Ross Ulbricht had one of these and learned to keep his mouth shut, he might still be a free man.
TBH, I don't think he deserved a double life sentence plus 40 years without the possibility of parole. He was cunning yet stupid. I think the sentence is overkill and he deserves a second chance in life.
Remember when on a job interview, when they ask you to tell them about yourself, be prepared, have much to say, ring your own bell. Nobody's going to ring it for you.
Before going in, ask yourself some of those typical questions and have prepared answers. Your level of preparedness can calm your nerves and impress managers.
Also, you are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you. Ask questions of them.
Showed up to job interview yesterday with script of questions for the hiring manager, many stumped him. He commented that he was never asked that many questions by an interviewee before and was wholly unprepared for my onslaught of questions. Also commented that it was the first time he asked fewer questions than the interviewee.
I told him that I just emailed him the list of questions to save him the trouble of writing them down. He seemed somewhat relieved and impressed at my preparedness.
All you hackers out there help Yonathan out. Even if you're not a hacker or into security, you've benefitted from this man's work. Give him a reason to smile today. Please boost.
Something tells me current boss has figured out I'm looking for a job. He just bridged my time from previous stint with this company even though they told me that would not happen when I came back. They just gave me a 10 year award(swag involved). With the time bridge, next year will be a 15 year award giving me an extra week of vacation(+more swag). Suddenly, I have less demand on me. They must have smelled the smoke of my burnout.
