Editor's Note – A Revamped Format
Over the spring, I've been grappling with how best to restructure The Cybertraps Newsletter to make it easier to produce and distribute on a regular basis. While I like the long-form structure of my earlier newsletters, they were time-consuming to write and I need to devote that drafting time to some other projects.
I'm switching to a curated format, using the same basic structure that I already use to store articles for use in my lectures and Cybertraps writing. (I highly recommend the web site that I use for collecting and organizing information, called Workflowy.com; I've been using it for about a decade and it is wildly useful.)
