2009 – On August 10, 2009, I switched the show from a weekly to daily format. Working out a podcast that was going to publish a new episode 365 days a year was a struggle, but after 4 years of doing it, its become a lot easier.Today marks the 1,500th podcast episode of the Day in Tech History. It hits a very important milestone; this is the only podcast that has been putting out a new episode daily for 1500 days straight!
The next milestone will be January 29th, 2015 when Day in Tech History hits the 2,000 episode mark.
Thanks for everyone that has listened to the podcast and even participated. Its a fun ride and the rides’ not over yet!
2008 -Sarah Palin succumbed to a hacker in a different way – through her Yahoo! email. The infiltrator gained access by using common information to reset the password. David Kernell then posted her email and new password on 4chan.org under the alias “Rubico”. It showed that by using common information to set up an account, it could also turn into a “back door” for someone who would know that information.
