@nycework tweet digest: 06/16-21/2013

Last week’s tweet highlights in a nutshell? The secret link between happiness and better work; helping someone is helping yourself; using “unclear” words to connect with your audience; noble computing; they summon your apps with light and sound; your gadget is a marketing spy; whoa, they can hack that, too…

Here’s a quick summary of tweets posted by @nycework between June 16 through June 21, 2013:

  • a list article suggesting ways you can compute and be environmentally friendly;
  • an article about how Internet marketers are silently and aggressively tracking you by “fingerprinting” the devices you use to access the Internet;
  • and, @nycework’s previous digest that includes a video post featuring Avi Rubin talking about how easily hackable all technological devices are.

It was beginning to be an experience just waiting in line for coffee. No one would have thought his or her cell phone would be vulnerable for acquiring harmful software in a coffee shop.
