I have nothing - What I am Reading 11/3/2016

Ars Technica - The Ars Technica science fiction bucket list—42 movies every geek must see -

Seen just over half and honestly movies like Zardoz and  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind aren't high on my list of things to do.

Dark Reading - It's Time To Address The Cybersecurity Gender Gap Before It's Too Late -
It's well known that women are underrepresented in technology roles. While women make up 47% of the workforce, only 34% of tech industry professionals are women. Within the cybersecurity sector, the numbers are even worse. Only 10% of IT security workers are women, contributing to a projected 1.5 million unfilled positions within the industry by 2020.
I'm all for more women in the cybersecurity workforce, but this article really doesn't give a compelling reason why it's important other than"because..." which may be part of the reason there is a gender gap - in my opinion anyway.  There has to be more of a case than women make up 50% of the population so they should be 50% of the cybersecurity workforce.  Make a decent case for women to be there and they will start to show up.

Cyberseek.org - Hack the Gap: Close the cybersecurity talent gap with interactive tools and data -

To help close the cybersecurity skills gap, CyberSeek provides detailed, actionable data about supply and demand in the cybersecurity job market.           
Sponsored by CompTIA, Burning Glass, and NIST.  I'm betting there may be a product / training bias.

Real Clear Politics - Latest Polls -

Not looking that great for Clinton, although not spectacular for Trump either.  Clinton still holds the upper ground in my opinion because she is likely to carry the counties that will really determine electoral votes but she has to be sweating it a bit.  And... I bet those idiots trying to tie electoral votes to national popular vote are pretty happy they failed at that about now.
