KMO welcomes Jordan Harbinger of The Art of Charm to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about social engineering, 419 (Spanish Prisoner) email scams, and the fact that charisma, confidence and persuasive abilities can improve with coaching, study and practice. Belief systems that seem to prevent us from living the life we want to lead may be serving us in another way, by excusing our failure to take what steps we can to do better at whatever it is we say we want to do. KMO concludes by talking about the value of yoga and meditation. Music by Fernando Tarango.

This is the sort of thing you want to be studying. I don’t know if this guy is for real or another huckster, but if there is something there we can use, at least one of us should check it out and teach it to the others. I will certainly see what I can glean from Harbinger.
He has done some exploits. He found out top secret government information by looking at social media profiles of top secret govenrment workers and getting to know them through Linkedin.
The podcast is all about how security measures are defeated by good social engineering. Open Source Espionage! The fact that other people out there like Harbinger are doing it shows that this is a good idea.
