IoT Hacking, Virtual School Fails, Neural Network NLP, and Using Logical Fallacies Reverse-Engineering IoT Devices -- nice step-by-step of how the author figures out the protocol used by a Bluetooth lightbulb (oh to live in such times) and thus how to control it without the Approved Software. Of Course Virtual Schools Don't Work -- that graph. The horror. Once seen, cannot unsee (or ever claim virtual schools are a good idea).
