InformationWeek
Today we're using our voice to engage with our smartphones and cars, and in the not-so-distant future, voice interfaces will extend to other areas of our lives, perhaps even to our favorite appliances as part of a more intelligent connected home.

In the end, the entire security community is benefiting from a lot of these investments, as many of these firms make these tools available through open-source projects. Over the past few years, some very useful tools have come from the security and engineering teams at Facebook, Twitter, Google, Netflix, Etsy and even AOL.

Preparing for a data breach: Think 'stop, drop and roll'
InformationWeek
When there's a fire, most of us know what to do. We have practiced for decades — at school, home and work — because if we immediately know how to respond, we can significantly minimize the damage. What about a data breach? How should businesses respond? From what we have seen, after conducting hundreds of post breach forensic investigations every year, many businesses do not know how to respond, leaving ample time for an attacker to move throughout their infrastructure stealing data.

STEM education: 7 awesome ways to get girls excited, from apps to clubs to cool websites
Cool Mom Tech
Julie Marsh, a mom of three and a project manager, writes: "I feel pretty lucky to have a couple of daughters who dig STEM — that's science, technology, engineering and math, in case you've seen the acronym floating around. While there are so many exciting developments in the last few years designed to get girls eager to explore STEM education and all its facets, it's still a lopsided field; check out even the most progressive schools' robotics or science clubs and you might be surprised how imbalanced the boy-girl ratio is. Hey, we need you girls! You're our future!"

He is talking about your brain. Your ability to think on your feet and make informed decisions has helped you become a true expert in your field. But as you move up the corporate ladder, you can become further and further removed from the heart of your business — so much so that it can affect the way you think about it.
