“Instagram API Lock: How your Automated Tool Will Fail You in 2018”

You’ve done it: you’ve found a subject’s pseudonym and online alias, you’ve loaded their (public) Facebook, and you find their Instagram account that breaks the timeline they’re suggesting. You are ready to preserve your social media evidence! You add their account information into your favorite automated collection software, when – nothing….

“Deconstructing Digital Evidence to Understand Defensibility”

There is generally no argument that social media and the web represent a valuable source of digital evidence for legal and fraud detection professionals….

Once seated, the service was quick, and the food was a very tasty upscale twist on American fare. And with over 90 beers and ciders on tap – including many from Pittsburgh – it was easy to not only find something that complemented our plates, but also try something new. My personal recommendation: the Duck Confit Nachos which seemed to accomplish the impossible task of having every nacho loaded with the correct amount of food, and nary a naked nacho seen on the plate.

Open for lunch and dinner everyday, plan your visit to City Works by visiting their website here
