How do you disclose / inform / or get in contact with online companies today?

So, Troy Hunt got the following out; https://www.troyhunt.com/kids-pass-just-reminded-us-how-hard-responsible-disclosure-is/ If we back a bit, we have a communication history in general.

Tinkering with the cheaper Intel Compute Stick

So, a while ago Intel released a “Intel Compute Stick”. It’s kindof tiny, doesn’t perform perfectly – but is quite a nice, quiet alternative for those whack-a-terminal-an-stream-some-music nights.
