#EventprofReads: Week 41

Here’s the latest #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

More pseudo-ransomware attacks are probably on the way, in TechCrunch:

“…we should expect to see more hacks targeting energy companies and infrastructure. That kind of attack is designed for maximum damage and can even paralyze an entire nation”

What North Korea can actually reach with its missiles, in the New York Times:

“The first test appeared to show the North could hit Alaska, and possibly San Diego, while the second pushed the range to somewhere between Denver and Chicago.”

From blockchain to drones, we need to stop obsessing about tech megatrends, from Wired:

“… If more men did the laundry, washing machines would be as hyped and alluring as drones. But, because they have been domesticated and are typically used by women, they don’t get their share of the glory.”

The truth behind that Google memo about why there are so few women in tech, in The Guardian:

“…While only 16% of computer science undergraduates in the UK – and a similar proportion in the US – are female, the balance is different in India, Malaysia and Nigeria.”

And finally… How to successfully launch a business in your spare time, from Stylist:

“…The worst thing is feeling vulnerable, I think. It’s quite a big deal to put yourself out there and tell everyone you’re starting a business, because if things don’t work out it could become quite a public failure.”
