The Secret Life of Passwords

Passwords – we all have them. It can be a point of stress for many of us, but we can’t get away from them.  I came across this interesting article, The Secret Life of Passwords by Ian Urbina in The New York Times. It’s rather lengthy but well worth the read both for entertainment and for information on how we choose to protect our information.

  1. Michelle, I am so sorry to hear news of your son’s passing at such a young age. A close friend of mine is struggling with the holiday season after the loss of her child this past March. There are no words to heal this type of wound. Thoughts, prayers, and so much love go out to you, my friend.

    1. Thank you Julie.It is something I will struggle with all of my life. Your friend needs lots of hugs, especially this time of year. It was the hugs of family and friends, and even strangers, that got me through. Hugs say what words cannot.


    1. Marianne, thank you for your beautiful words of comfort. Losing a child is the one grief that never goes away; it is just something you learn to live with.
      Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas.


  2. Very interesting article, Michelle. And coincidentally, my mother’s cousin and his wife lost their 23 year old son in that tragedy on 9/11…he worked for Cantor Fitzgerald.

    1. I am so sorry to hear. It is a life long journey learning to live without a child, one that has no end. We lost a son in 2004 at age 26.

      Merry Christmas to you and yours.
