I attended the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (m3aawg.org) meeting in Brooklyn, NY.   I expected better weather to wander around the city while enjoying the conference and the neighborhood’s wide selection of food. I had been so confident of clear skies that I did not bring a rain jacket.   It rained most of the week. This left me somewhat stranded in my hotel room with free Wifi service and both my research laptop and my work laptop.
