For those of us old enough to remember seeing "Back to the Future" on the big screen, one year from today will be Wednesday, October 21, 2015 -- the date that Marty and Doc jumped ahead on the space-time continuum in the DeLorean. Time sure flies ... figuratively and literally!

Game-winning RBI in his last #Yankees game; thanks for the memories, Derek Jeter! #FarewellCaptian -- Billy Crystal Tribute: http://grab-media.com/premium-videos/5340228

I'm always grateful to be included on industry lists for my professional efforts, but it was very cool to be highlighted in one on +Forbes   yesterday ... and I didn't know until I saw +Cheryl K. Burgess post it on +LinkedIn  and started to get congratulations messages and tweets from people. Nice surprise and cheers to all! :-) http://bit.ly/Forbes50SocialCMOs

I'm completely and utterly devastated about Robin Williams. Despite fame and being a comedic genius, he lost the battle with depression and apparently committed suicide. RIP, Mork -- Mrs. Doubtfire -- "O Captain! My Captain!"

45 years ago tonight, 99% of the televisions on planet Earth were tuned in to #NASA's TV signal (via @NBCNews). #Apollo11
The Eagle Prepares to Land: It was 45 years ago today that Neil Armstrong took the small step onto the surface of the moon that changed the course of history. The years that followed saw a Space Age of scientific, technological and human research, on which we have built the modern era. We stand on a new horizon, poised to take the next giant leap-deeper into the solar system. The Apollo missions blazed a path for human exploration to the moon and today we are extending that path to near-Earth asteroids, Mars and beyond.

This image is of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle in a landing configuration and was photographed in lunar orbit from the Command and Service Module Columbia. Inside the module were Commander Neil A. Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin. The long rod-like protrusions under the landing pods are lunar surface sensing probes. Upon contact with the lunar surface, the probes sent a signal to the crew to shut down the descent engine.

As we embrace, adopt and expand on the "nexus of forces" (as Gartner calls it) with cloud, data, mobile and social, security becomes an increasing concern. Here are some thoughts about "staying safe in the cloud." http://bit.ly/SafetyInTheCloud
