Lockheed Martin: Hacked!

Today a few members of our team are coming forward to the story of how they hacked into one of the most secretive and secured privately held businesses in the world. Aliens, hacking, and government secrets are all inbound and slated to release over the next weeks. We have it all, and you want proof, of course. You always put the burden of proof on us truthers, and someday we are going to take the time to tell you how one-sided and toxic this relationship is, but today we are just going to give you what you asked for. With a newly signed pact amongst our group, we have collectively decided to start sharing verifiable details on this site cautiously.

Regular Expressions (“Regex”)

This is a quick explanation of a simple software term for anyone who is less inclined to read a Wikipedia explanation and prefers the explain-like-Im-five approach. Programmers rely on regular expressions (regex) to identify and parse patterns in text or other data. A regular expression allows a developer to specify a pattern and then run that pattern search over a payload and identify any matches. Most of the time, hackers use regex in the form of “grep” to find files on a computer through a console. Or when scraping websites or quickly sifting through a large amount of data.

From Student to Mentor and Back

Some of the best advice I ever received was to always have a mentor throughout life. If you don’t have a mentor, then how intentional or accountable are you about seeking self-improvement and growth? I found my first business mentor at 17 working as a handyman for a successful entrepreneur, Mike. He had built his wealth over time through hard work and persistence. He had slowly worked his way up to 20 or so rental properties, and his full-time business was simply maintenance and improvement of his properties. He wasn’t content to sit on his ass and collect a check like most landlords. He believed that we can only grow if we continue to invest in ourselves. Mike taught me so much about who I wanted to be as an entrepreneur and helped me realize that I could achieve anything if I had the fortitude.
