But I did I promise to tell you what I wanted to get…Read More Security is about outcomes: RSA edition

Graceland was a collaboration of the…Read More I Know What I Know
My smart friend James Thomson of TLA Systems has created a new benchmark in iPhone applications, Twitkitteh.

I’d like to talk about why I see it as a tremendous positive, and will be doing it again. First, it engages the audience. There’s a motive to pay close attention and…Read More All atwitter

When I say others, I mean this blog. Justin found Emergent Chaos back when it was a solo gig and I was…Read More Congratulations, Justin!
In this week’s CSO Online, Bill Brenner writes about the recent breaks at Kaspersky Labs and F-Secure. You can tell his opinion from the title alone, “Security Vendor Breach Fallout Justified” in his ironically named “FUD watch” column. Brenner watched the FUD as he spreads it. He moans histrionically, When security is your company’s business,…Read More Who Watches the FUD Watcher?
