This is another reminder never to click on links in an email and then enter your password! Even if they are legit, you should go to the website on your own without clicking on any links in emails!
An attack that failed still shows some scary tactics.

This is our second year of creating our list of the top 50 people to watch in Southern California's technology industry, and it was NOT an easy task. As we found last year, it's a tough, unforgiving task to narrow down a list of the fo

Love this artwork from Krisitn Bauer! If you've worked with me over the years, you've seen me use this idiom on my company wide emails. About seven years ago we went on an amazing week long backpacking trip with some friends in Dark Canyon Wilderness, UT (http://www.backpacker.com/trips/utah/america-s-best-kept-secrets-dark-canyon-wilderness-ut/). We spent most of the trip talking about peaks and valleys - metaphorically and climbing them physica...

It does not make a difference if you are in a small startup or a large corporation; you have to demand the best from everyone to have a great culture! Would love to hear your thoughts on what makes a great culture... Here are some of mine…

Story
Tagline
CEO at iCitizen. Leader of tech innovation and team culture. Loving life as a dad, high tech exec & triathlete.
Introduction
I am a 20-year veteran of the IT field and am currently serving as the CEO of iCitizen. iCitizen makes transparency and accountability possible in government, enabling citizens to engage directly with their representatives on issues that they, as constituents, care most about.

Through my career and my life, I've enjoyed being a constant student of change. I have been trying to apply (and constantly improve) my leadership philosophy, directly inspired by my family, of course, but also by my own experiences as a dad, a triathlete and, really, a human being just trying to be a better person and, as much as possible, help others live happier, more productive lives.
