This is the personal website of law enforcement technology and information security consultant Nick Selby. Nick is CEO and co-founder, with David Henderson, of StreetCred Software, Inc, a Code for America Accelerator Company (you can watch a six-minute video, recorded at the 2013 Code for America Summit, in which Nick describes the problem StreetCred addresses and how it seeks to solve it).
Nick and Dave write the Police-Led Intelligence blog, and they also write the Tech Talk column for Law Officer Magazine. Nick is co-author of Blackhatonomics: An Inside Look at the Economics of Cybercrime; technical editor of Investigating Internet Crimes: An Introduction to Solving Crimes in Cyberspace; and author of a boatload of other books on travel.
On this site you will find artifacts from Nick’s life, which together comprise the World’s Weirdest CV. There are articles on travel, information security, technology, and zany things. There are blog posts on a host of topics, including cyber-security and law enforcement technology, privacy and intelligence. And other stuff, like how to be prepare for back-to-school in these allergy-sensitive days; a mentally healthy Australian male, how to use voice recognition technology, where to buy pirated software in Russia, what is the most revolting video in the world and other topics. You know … the usual.
