Wrote this post for Web Insecurity on the weekend and scheduled it for Monday... But on Monday I was busy drinking water and getting ready to donate blood, so I never posted something here. Oops.

The advertising social contract vs malvertisements: how can online advertisers earn your eyes?

It's mostly musing about how ad blocking actually makes you safer while web browsing, and whether advertisers will wind up rising to this challenge by giving us ads that are worth unblocking or ads that go beyond banners. I gave up my TV years ago, and I still have people telling me about great TV advertisements I missed. Very few people tell me about banner ads I missed. And I think the last time was those Evony ads which is an entirely different category of "you've got to see this!"

In other web security related news, or perhaps Terri-in-web-security related news, I found out last night that my W2SP talk has to be 5-10 minutes long rather than the 15-20 I expected. This presents a challenge, but I can rise to it. Just not in time to do a practice run at 3pm today as I'd planned. I actually have under 10 minute slides from my presentation the week before last, but I skipped some stuff in that talk that I need to put in to the final one, so we'll see how that goes.

Anyhow, if you're curious here's the W2SP schedule -- Apparently there's still space in the workshop if you're in the bay area and interested in attending a web security workshop next week.

In just-Terri related news, the blood donation went well yesterday, but not without hitches. This may be TMI for some, but I find it fascinating.  Also, it's handy for me to record this stuff somewhere, and here's a good a place as any.

Turns out my veins are hard to find, but they work )

There's absolutely no bruising on either side, so despite the two pokes, I'm feeling even more awesome than usual!  Nice to feel like a superhero for a day. :)
