With Thanksgiving approaching, there’s a good chance you’re agonizing over what dinner topics to avoid so your holiday meal isn’t ruined. You’ve endured too much in 2020 to let a debate with your uncle ruin dinner.
Rather than stoke conflict at the dinner table, let’s inspire family togetherness by discussing a safe topic: passwords.
You read that correctly. This Thanksgiving, talk to your family about passwords. The world is united in an unbending dislike of passwords, so jointly denigrating them is a reliable way to promote a sense of community even among distant relatives.
Here are some conversation starters:
There you have it. A Thanksgiving dinner everyone will remember. And in between bites of beans, greens, potatoes and tomatoes – make sure you remind people that passwordless authentication is finally happening.
Unlike topics that alienate people, a rigid contempt for passwords is the underlying truth that binds people together even when they don’t agree on other matters. This is without doubt and without exception, since across the known universe, people from all walks of life can unite in their contempt for the password.
So this year, let the venom about password flow like so much turkey gravy. Your guests will thank us for the suggestion, and perhaps an unyielding hostility towards, say, hardware security tokens will make New Year’s Eve all the more memorable.
