in-security: Azure storage

 Microsoft leaks 38TB of private data via unsecured Azure storage

"The Microsoft AI research division accidentally leaked dozens of terabytes of sensitive data starting in July 2020 while contributing open-source AI learning models to a public GitHub repository.

Almost three years later, this was discovered by cloud security firm Wiz whose security researchers found that a Microsoft employee inadvertently shared the URL for a misconfigured Azure Blob storage bucket containing the leaked information."

no more AWS no-code Honeycode

There is a reason that "real" startups produce more success products than "internal startups" in large organizations. It is called "survivor bias". When there is no option but to survive or die, 
the end result is close to what market / customers "really" need, not what large org, like Amazon,
may "think" the customer may "like". Plus, for a product to be useful for Amazon it needs to make $ billions, and that is very hard, at least not quickly. And that is too bad for Honeycode is an interesting tool, that in some other conditions would be likely to be successful. Instead, it is a "NO" for this "no-code" tool.
