We are Louise Fletcher, pangolin researcher, and Jason Derry, professor of science communication, here to chat about the world's most trafficked animal. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5837/happy-world-pangolin-day-we-are-louise-fletcher In the mid nineties, I was the world's most wanted hacker for hacking into 40 major corporations just for the challenge. I'm now an author and security consultant to Fortune 500 and governments worldwide, performing penetration testing services for the world’s largest companies. I am also the Chief Hacking Officer for KnowBe4, a company that develops software to train employees to make smarter security decisions. Ask me anything.

Ok, it's time for me go. Thank you very much for participating in my first AMA. A final answer is to what I've been up to recently besides hacking and speaking. My 4th book, The Art of Invisibility, was released 2 days ago. This book is targeted to the everyday person that wants to protect their privacy or even get off the grid entirely. It's too bad the "fugitives" on Hunted didn't get a chance to read this first. In addition I've very excited to be involved with growing KnowBe4 to over 200 employees in the past 4.5 years. It's our job is to stop the former Kevin Mitnicks of the world. It's too bad John Podesta didn't take the training as he might not have clicked on that email.

My speaking schedule is posted on my website, stop by and I'll get you one of my famous business card for free.

ASK ME ANYTHING! http://www.topiama.com/r/5831/i-have-end-stage-renal-failure-ive-been-through I've had kidney problems since the age of four but the actually failed in February 2016. I got onto PD as soon as I could but unfortunately I wasn't able to get the clearances I needed so I had to go onto hemo in December 2016. To get the hemo started I've started with neck lines then moved to a chest line. Finally I had my fistula made and now I've started using that. Ask me anything :)

Actor / EntertainerHey Reddit, I'm Katherine Ryan! No V-Day Plans? Come talk to me about my Netflix special, Katherine Ryan: In Trouble, out now! http://www.topiama.com/r/5821/hey-reddit-im-katherine-ryan-no-vday-plans-come My bio: Three years ago I decided to get into the fight of preparing children for the workforce of tomorrow. I ran and won a seat on a School Board in Hampton Roads. In that time I've learned a lot about local Education and championed causes that I think make our community a better place.

The Department of Education has limited influence on k-12 education. Local leaders, such as members of the local School Board, make a surprisingly large number of decisions in public education. I believe that public education is the most efficient path to the American dream.

Proof: Here is post on my public facebook page for proof.

If you have any further questions, you can follow or like me on facebook. To be a leader of the people I need to hear from the people, so ask me questions.

EDIT: I want to thank everyone for participating in my AMA. This was a great experience for me to connect with all of you. I plan to do another AMA in June 2017. Want another AMA sooner? Just write a comment on this facebook post. I hope that I was able to give all of you the insight you need to make change in your local schools. I know from talking with school board members from around the country that school boards really want to hear from people in the community. The government should be made up of ordinary people like me and you. Engage with your local leaders and it will be.

W/BOB&DAVID - WHAT'S UP W/ME http://www.topiama.com/r/5818/girlfriends-day-saul-goodman-wbobdavid-whats-up In October of 1997, I was a vault supervisor for armored truck company Loomis Fargo, when I made off with $17.3 million. At the time it was the second largest cash robbery ever to happen on US soil.

A movie based on the heist starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones and directed by Jared Hess (the guy who made Napoleon Dynamite) is out now on Blu-ray and DVD.
