English T-Shirts In Asia (20+ Pics)

English T-Shirts In Asia (20+ Pics)   One of the great things about the world we live in is the rich and diverse variety of languages that you can find across the globe. The only problem is that, as you can see from these pictures, sometimes these languages don’t quite translate… In homage to hilarious translation fails, shameless has compiled this list of t-shirts from East Asia that don’t quite say what they should (“Texas state it’s a triangle OMG so hipster triangle”, for example). Some of them don’t say anything at all (well, not unless “temmby woroing terrislylastly” means anything…

The IoT Files: The need for cryptography

The IoT Files: The need for cryptography One of the main arguments that should be touched by IoT discussion is cryptography. There is an undisputed consensus that cryptography is a mandatory requirement to preserve security and privacy in the IoT world, but we are far away for a general consensus on how to operate. The need for cryptography in IoT comes from two main aspects: Data security Data privacy The first need is clear; encryption is a mandatory requirement when we want to implement any form of authentication and non repudiation. Encryption is widely used even if we don’t know…

Our memories are all we have

I am in China for work, with a few connection to the real world outside, so Italian news usually comes to me late, when I am able to connect to internet from hotel; great firewall allowing. Being isolated from the Italian reality put things into a different perspective, allow you to keep less news with more time to digest and think about. It happened a few days ago I learned of the death of Umberto Eco, one of the greatest Italian tinker of our age. He was a great writer, a great thinker, a truly free spirit. The first thing I did…

Bunch of anniversaries, lol, thanks for reminding LinkedIn

So basically I receive anniversary wishes for my blogs, my activity as a trainer, journalistwriter and for my current Job. let’s talk a bit about my…

Pavia – Shenzhen 4:I think what I need here is a surviving guide

View image | gettyimages.com I think what I need here is a surviving guide 🙂 I have had the chance to talk with some western colleagues, apparently we share, more or less, the same difficulties. Language Barriers Let be clear, if you want to take shenzhen metro, well it is a piece of cake, all indications are in chinese and english, the train are modern as the stations. Every stop is clearly described on the train (and announced in both languages) so it is a great way to travel here. The things get differents when you need a cab. you have…

Pavia Shenzhen step 3

[发怒][抓狂][骷髅][弱] OK I am pissed off. Sometimes apparently the easiest things are the hardest to solve. I am trying to get my second visa to China and I were hoping this time things would have goon smoothly. Yesterday I took my train, went to Milan and, happy-go-lucky the whole computer systems was down, spent there just a 5 hours waiting for the system turning back, no luck… So I took my train today, hoping for a better result… Guess what… Murphy’s laws …. The invitation letter was wrong (same old story), states 30 day stay not 60 as needed, and…

Are we using a double standard in IT security?

Are we using a double standard in IT security? In the last years Cyber Security has raised as a major concern in any sector of our lives, from government to business and even at private and personal level. But I am wondering if there is a sort of double standard when we judge facts happening when they are related to cybersecurity. Let’s make some example: We all have read concerns rising form the rumoured new rules that china will impose to companies selling IT equipments in some sensitive sector like financial, western expert have raised all so of questions pointing out that…

After a few days in Shenzhen

OK time sto say something about my first days here in Shenzhen. I passed a whole week now and I have a better vision. I have to admit I like this place, people is kind and the work environment here in Huawei is great. The Hotel room is not the most luxurious (I’m at Elite Garden Hotel) but the overall impression is really positive, clean and good service, outside there is a lot of trees and it is a pleasure to walk around. Services like gym, swimming pool, areas to play basketball (not for me of course)…everything looks great. Then the…
