OSU gymnastics: Three seniors taking the next step in life
Mary Jacobsen heard that Google interviews were tough and that other companies used the same techniques as Google, so she figured it would be a good idea to practice by going through the process with the company. To her surprise, she wound up with a job. She will start in September as a software engineer. “I sort of started a trend because I decided to major in (computer science with the computer systems option) and then my two little sisters, I talked them into it as well,” Jacobsen said. “So hopefully they like it.” Corvallis Gazette-Times

DARPA Is Building a $10 Million, Open Source, Secure Voting System
The first-of-its-kind system will be designed by an Oregon-based firm called Galois, a longtime government contractor with experience in designing secure and verifiable systems. The system will use fully open source voting software, instead of the closed, proprietary software currently used in the vast majority of voting machines, which no one outside of voting machine testing labs can examine. More importantly, it will be built on secure open source hardware, made from special secure designs and techniques developed over the last year as part of a special program at DARPA. They’ll also be working with a number of university teams over the next year to have them examine the systems in formal test environments. Motherboard
