Happy Monday, kittens! We’re leaping headlong into October’s home stretch and we hope you have put the finishing touches on your Infosec Taylor Swift costumes for Halloween. The atomic clock is ticking, kittens!

Don’t want to go as the same old same old? Peruse our links roundup for more ideas. Jihadi John? Probably not a great idea, particularly in the area around Langley, Virginia. Keanu in the Matrix? Sure, as long as  you’re nowhere near Columbine. Cute Steve Jobs (with hair)? Hmmmm, now you’re talking. You can get the whole outfit at the Gap for less than a hundred bucks, and thrill all your geek girl friends.
