Some days, my day job doesn’t seem like a job that a real person would have at all. It seems like something out of a sitcom. Today, I have:
- Worn a bear mask in the office (panda in my case; seen below alongside my head of department, in a grizzly mask).
- Chatted about popular TV shows that happen to contain libraries, for inclusion in a future podcast series.
- Experimented with Web-based augmented reality as a possible mechanism for digital exhibition content delivery. (Seen this thing from Google Arts & Culture? If you don’t have an AR-capable device to hand, here’s a video of what it’s like.)
- Implemented a demonstrative XSS payload targetting a CMS (as a teaching tool, to demonstrate how a series of minor security vulnerabilities can cascade into one huge one).
- Gotten my ‘flu jab.
Not every day is like this. But sometimes, just sometimes, one can be.
