Making something useful doesn’t require genius. You simply have to be just reckless enough to get started, just smart enough to understand the problem, just dumb enough not to overcomplicate the solution, and just stubborn enough to keep going until you get there.

In "Dependency Confusion," security researcher Alex Birsan describes how he made a fortune in bug bounties by exploiting a new supply-chain attack he calls "dependency confusion," which allowed him to compromise "Apple, Microsoft and dozens of others."

Dependency Confusion is incredibly, delightfully clever. It is grounded in the fact that software developers rely on "dependencies" (prebuilt, modular code libraries) when they build new versions of their software.

Good 'ol Marcus

"When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous, and surly. They are like this because they can’t tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own—not of the same blood or birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands, and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are obstructions."
