Squatter 21 - Protect Yourself

 Wow. I was preparing a Google Classroom full of resources, and noticed I never did a full release of Squatter 21. Anyway, I'll be the first to admit. I'm not a cybersecurity expert. I don't even like the prefix "cyber." It makes me think of people from the 80's trying to sound smarter than they really are. Anyway, here's some tips. Most of them are solid, reliable tips you can use (along with a little common sense) to keep yourself safe online. When it comes right down to it, thieves are going after the easiest targets out there. Don't be low hanging fruit.

Squatter 24 - Cognitive Bias vol.2

 Yep. More cognitive biases. In this day and age, it is more important than ever to make sure you are aware of potential bias in an effort to seek the truth, rather than what your brain wants to be the truth. Yes, sometimes those are two different things. For example, find a clock with a second hand that ticks. Look at it. Close your eyes. Count to 15. Look at the clock again. Many of you are now asking yourself, why did it take the second hand so long to move right after I opened my eyes. Here's the thing. It didn't take longer. It was the same time as every other second that clock ticks. That seemingly extra long second was your brain's way of interpreting what was going on. Your brain processes big chunks first, and small details later. Your brain can fool you. Isn't that nice? What's even better is that you'll believe it. Anyway, Here's Squatter 24.
