Reading list from “How IT will change in the next 10 years”

At Windows Connections two weeks ago, during my keynote speech “How IT will change in the next 10 years and why you should care,” I mentioned several books worth reading. Many of you have asked for the list; here it is: The Cathedral and the Bazaar by Eric S. Raymond The Wisdom of Crowds by…


TechEd 2009: Never too early to start planning

What’s on your mind? What do you want to learn more about? Tell me, tell me… Oh, and for 2009 I plan to stay at TechEd US for both weeks. I want to start spending more time with developers — they need some security love too 🙂

My presentations at TechEd 2007

Hello everyone! Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve written. I’ve been pretty busy lately with a security roadshow in Southeast Asia. It’s become an annual thing, it’s a lot of fun, and I get to spend a good amount of time in what’s becoming my favorite area of the world. Anyway, the planning for…


Speaking at TechMentor and WinConnections again

Looks like this is becoming a regular thing for me. I like both these events very much. Their smaller size allows me to spend more time with individual folks between sessions. TechMentor is 9-13 October in Las Vegas. I’m delivering three presentations: Windows Vista system integrity technologies Windows Vista firewall and IPsec enhancements Attacker trends…

My music

Those of you who’ve seen me speak at various events know that I like to play my own music before the presentations begin. In industry parlance, this is called “walk-in music.” My experience, though, is that many times the music they provide is better described as “walk-in, lie down, and go night-night music”! Think about…
