On today’s episode we talk about Microsoft’s big push towards a world without passwords. We also discuss what it’s been like to live and work in a world increasingly dominated by two-factor authentication (2FA), and sometimes three-factor authentication. Last but not least we talk a little bit more about our favorite game, Dwarf Fortress, and the joys of procedurally generated worlds.

When  2FA just won’t do, 3FA to the rescue. Just pray we aren’t headed towards five factors.
