I didn’t make this picture, someone else did. But I considered it an honour. My company recently held a Sales Kick-Off (SKO) for the second time this year in Las Vegas. One of the things that we did was to highlight deals that had been won that were really important for particular reasons. The one […]Read More Old Man Logan (Or, On Getting Old) @sirpatstew
How was my 2015? Pretty spectacular. Life-changing. The big news of the year was the birth of our first child, our son Maxwell. He’s almost eight months old already, and it’s amazing to see how time has gone by so slowly and yet so quickly. It was a rough first six months, because he had […]Read More 2015 in Review
Picture from sigstr.com. It’s that time of year! Time to make predictions for the upcoming year, and as I like to do, I like to try and make them in my field – cybersecurity. These are just my guesses, speaking for myself – I am in no way representing my employer or anyone else. Blockchains […]Read More #Cybersecurity Predictions for 2016
Last year I made cybersecurity predictions, broadly rendered as: An increase in SSL visibility. Increased flight of data and sites from the US. Increased necessity for digital forensics in the mobile platform space. TOR would face more scrutiny and have to harden itself against those. Bitcoin would increase its dominance while Ethereum would become more […]Read More How Did I Do On 2015’s #Cybersecurity Predictions?
It’s 2015, and once again I’m going to take a look at what I think will be the trends in cybersecurity for 2015. I’m going to focus on all of them all at once this time, instead of an individual post devoted to each, since it took me so long to do that in 2014. […]Read More #Cybersecurity #Trends for #2015
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted…. and there’s really no excuse for that. I could say I’ve been busy (yes), on holidays (yes), and a myriad of other things, but realistically, I’ve just been doing other things and not prioritising blogging. I can’t say that will change, but I’m going to have another […]Read More I Get to Celebrate Father’s Day Next Year!
Picture from macharianthunderguard.blogspot.com. So I made it to sixty-six straight days of posting on my blog (in an effort to do more writing, and to get better at it), and at that point, I got sick. I slept for 15 hours straight one day, and that killed my streak! Of course, since then, I’ve been […]Read More Habits!
Night Owl Society Logo from drawsigner.com. Waking up on a regular schedule is difficult for me, unless it’s from 3am until 11am. I don’t know why I am this way, but that’s always been the best way to schedule things. I had a summer job that allowed me to sleep that schedule, and it was […]Read More On Being a Night Owl
Image from goodreads.com. Dan Hurley wants to know what can make him smarter. He’s written a book about the different ways that he can learn to become smarter, including everything from smart drugs to nicotine, to exercise, to brain training exercises. He goes through each in turn, exploring their history and current applications. His goal […]Read More Book Review: Smarter: The New Science of Building Brain Power
My Brain Performance Score, courtesy of Luminosity.com. I’m turning 40 in less than 18 months, and so as I get older I am trying to stave off physical and mental decline. I’ve been doing this since I turned 32, so it’s not a new thing for me. Additionally, I’ve become interested in biohacking, or the […]Read More Brain Training with @lumosity #biohacking #brain #braintraining
