Everything I can remember. – jessicashortall – Medium
When I was about 8, my mother took my sister and me to a local state park, a place where we would often ramble among the rocks and trees and streams. I waded up a stream on this particular trip, and when I looked back for my mom, I had gone a bit too far. A man was standing there in the stream, blocking my way, looking at me.

The man ran away.

Why You Should Never Use Google Authenticator Again
There can never be enough security. On the other hand, using faulty or weak protections may merely make you feel safe, while you remain exposed to various threats.
Using passwords only is generally a bad idea, which we have learned since the beginning of the Internet. We are making progress to a password-free world, but in the meantime, many websites offer an additional user account protection with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).

Controlling your own wealth as a basic human right
A few months ago, the Indian government withdrew 86% of banknotes in circulation. Ostensibly, it was to cut down on the black market economy and tax cheats, but it also wiped out a large percentage of the wealth of the poorest people, who hold their wealth in cash. A few weeks later, Venezuela followed with a similar measure.

Venture capital is going to murder Medium
It’s a crying shame, really. I love Medium. It’s the best writing environment on the web, and they sweat the details like nobody else. The community too is just peach. This could have been a love story for the ages.
