Bart Busschots Talks Passwords on Daily Tech News Show

I like to post to Podfeet.com when I’ve had appearances on other shows, but this week I’m even more excited to tell you that Bart was on Daily Tech News Show this week! He and Tom Merritt had a great rapport as they discussed the latest tech news. The main topic though was passwords, and they spent a bunch of time talking about Bart’s xkpasswd.net password generator.
