Hello Baby!

Frantic in Dallas I’m back…after a long absence. The last 3 months or so have been crazy in my life. After my trip to London and Edinburgh in mid-September, I returned home patiently awaiting the delivery of our son in late-October. We went to the doctor on Monday, September 29th and the sonogram looked great….

Batten Down the Hatches Texas!

Well, I’ve been pretty much just keeping only a cursory interest in Hurricane Ike once my family on the East Coast was going to be safe. Now I have to pay attention again. A friend of mine sent me this today, which means my flight on Saturday will either be arriving early or departing really…

The Security Show: Episode Two – Stopping James Bond (Part II)

In this part, we get some good advice from the FBI on how to have that talk with your executives who like to travel out of the country and don’t really understand the risk that they assume when they carry that laptop, cell phone, or other electronic device with them. Good stuff!

Back from vacation!

RSA 2008 – Day 3: Breakfast with the MSAT and Cruising the Expo

Who Doesn’t Like Breakfast? Sort of a slow day here at RSA today. My guess is that all those parties sort of took their toll on the majority of the attendees. I got up early to catch up on some schoolwork (yes….the quest for the elusive MBA continues, even when I’m traveling…..) and then headed…

TechEd Australia and TechEd New Zealand 2007: Mission Complete!!

Well, I’m sitting in the (very nice) Qantas Business Class Lounge here at the Auckland Airport, and I’m happy to report that the two events that were delivered in Australia and New Zealand were a huge success! Both events were sold out, and I can see why. The sessions were really well done and provided…
