As I went to CES this year, I noticed a distinctive shift towards a new trend that everyone is referring to as “The Internet of Things” or IOT.

OK : +Milton Security Group 's exciting news is here : We felt that the OpenSSL Software Foundation needed resources to make sure things like HeartBleed does not happen again, as thousands of products, and websites rely on OpenSSL. (Banking, Financial Services, Online Stores, etc)


I was also personally amazed that large firms in the USA are not stepping up to at least help a little bit directly to the OpenSSL Software Foundation.

Since Milton Security Group Uses OpenSSL in a range of our products, it totally makes sense for us to help OpenSSL in a sustaining meaningful way.

"With the world becoming an ever increasing online society, I would think (hope) that more companies would be racing to increase their network security in any way possible. The sad reality however is that most companies continue to keep network security as a small line item in their IT budget."

If you run in to this guy at #CES, fear not! He's our CEO.

Actually, we've rethought that. Be afraid.

Getting ready for a 4 hour drive to Las Vegas.  

Since my kids compete in Barrel Racing and Rodeos, they want to see what the National Barrel Horse Association competition is all about (We hear over 1,000 horses/competitors are going to be there)

Birthdays have always been about celebrating the day you were born. I think it should also be a day to thank everyone around you for helping you get through and live life to its fullest for yet another year. 

30 Years ago I started on a journey from my parents home at age 18. I left behind school friends and acquaintances; the first stop was a real boot camp. This 30 year journey introduced me to hundreds (maybe even thousand, so many people its hard to keep track) of super interesting people, each of who had a direct influence on me. Some became my friends, and an even smaller group became my close friends and confidents.  I visited every state in the US at least once, worked my way through all of the EU, CE, Poland, some of the ex Soviet states, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Panama, Peru and Cuba (I know I am forgetting other places I have been). I rode trains all over Europe, CE and parts of Russia. 

I have sailed on the North Pacific Ocean, Bering Sea, South Pacific Ocean, North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and the North Sea. I fell in love with the ocean thanks to USCG.

I met and married the most wonderful person in my life and together we are raising two awesome precocious daughters. I have worked for numerous organizations, (USCG, Fed Gov, City Gov) and many startups, and then went off and started a company myself. Its hard to believe, or comprehend how I got so lucky along the way, of course there are ups and down. Such is my life. Always hope that the ups far outweigh the downs.

This Birthday, I want to take the time to thank each of you for being part of my journey so far.  Each and every one of you has contributed to who I am, and for that I am very thankful.

Thank you for being part of my life - Happy Birthday to you!

So due to scheduling conflicts (ie - making sales, gaining customers and completing projects) I am not attending RSA this year.

No I am not "boycotting" RSA due to it taking $10 million dollars from the NSA to mislead and potentially injure its customers of its products by allegedly creating a potential backdoor so the NSA could eavesdrop on communications.

Running a small business with two locations and 25 employees ( +Milton Security Group  ) means I need to be everything to everyone, and to use my time wisely.

For everyone attending RSA, have a lot of fun, wear good shoes, don't wear our your voice talking. Try all the awesome beer in SF (Beer week was just like a week ago) 

For everyone attending BSidesSF : I wish I could make it up just for this. I know that fellow BSidesLV members +Jack Daniel  , GK and +Alex Hutton  are working hard to make sure BSidesSF goes off without a hitch !

To avoid ConFlu : Make sure you have a small flask of vodka and hand sanitizer with you at all times. Every time you eat, drink a shot of vodka. Every time you touch anything, use the hand sanitizer.

Now back to 8 Ball Pool.

ps - we were going to give out Raspberry Pis and Lockpick cards to cool people in SF if I did attend, so if you want one of those, leave me a comment and I will send it to you !
