Jason Fried on work ethic
Work ethic is about showing up, being on time, being reliable, doing what you say you’re going to do, being trustworthy, putting in a fair day’s work, respecting the work, respecting the customer, respecting the organization, respecting co-workers, not wasting time, not making work hard for other people, not creating unnecessary work for other people, not being a bottleneck, not faking work. Work ethic is about being a fundamentally good person that others can count on and enjoy working with.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued an update to its password guidelines in June 2017 titled Digital Identity Guidelines (SP 800-63-3). Many of the guidelines that previously existed in the industry as best practice with credentials have been replaced with simpler, more user-friendly approaches.
Examples of new guidelines in the Digital Identity Guidelines (SP 800-63-3):
- Length of passwords between 8 – 64 characters are recommended.
- Character types of nonstandard characters, such as emoticons, are allowed when possible.
- Long passphrases are encouraged and should not match entries in the prohibited password dictionary
- Password reset frequency should be primarily triggered on if the password is compromised or forgotten
- Multifactor Authentication is encouraged in all but the least sensitive applications
