Free.fm – Active Age on Air

On 3rd of April 2017 two members of Hamilton Computer Club (Rod and William) did a radio interview on Free.fm for the show Active Age on Air. In the interview with Margrit Neukomm they discussed the history of the club, how they got involved and what the club can do for you. They also talked about subscription services such as Netflix and Spotify and communication tools Skype and Whats App.

The interview went for an hour – a mixture of interviews and New Zealand music from the 50s. You can download (or stream) the mp3 of the show – Active Age on Air-03-04-2017 .

Thank you Free.fm and Age Concern for the interview.

Cyber Security is Everyone’s Problem

Did you miss the demo/presentation that Dr. Sivadon Chaisiri (Boom) of the Cyber Security Lab, Dept of Computer Science,  University of Waikato gave us on November 13th? His picture of what is happening when we go on the internet  helped us understand the risks we expose ourselves to and how we should deal with them.

It is not the same as being there, but Boom has kindly given us a link to his October presentation so you won’t miss out completely.

It is certainly scary out there. Do you have any ideas to add on what makes us vulnerable and how to keep ourselves safe?
