Why do we look at our career and accomplishments through the arm’s length lens of a “neutral” mildly, detached, modest observer, rather than stepping up with enthusiasm, owning our career accomplishments (and failures) and injecting professional details with some personality?

Instead of thinking of a phrase and converting it to a password (that won’t be all that random), get a truly random password and convert it to an easy‑to-remember phrase, writes +William Poundstone in his new book "Rock Breaks Scissors: A Practical Guide to Outguessing & Outwitting Almost Everybody."
Security is always about the weakest link.

Story
Tagline
Business | Finance | Technology | Marketing | Social Media
Introduction
Among my primary interests is the evolving impact of social media in developing new business opportunities in the United States and around the world.

Cultural pursuits encompass Shakespeare, musical theater, art-house movies, chamber music, and La Belle Époque. Avocations run the gamut from Tango Argentino to Harley-Davidson Café Racer motorcycles.

An active adventurer in the whirl of life, I enjoy a widely varied assortment of activities and interests. I'm involved in a number of civic organizations, including the Harvard Business School Club of Connecticut, President's College at the University of Hartford, World Affairs Council, MIT Enterprise Forum, and the Simsbury Light Opera Company.

As a volunteer staff member of WWUH – 91.3 FM West Hartford, a public alternative radio station operated as a community service by the University of Hartford, I serve as a producer and announcer in the Classical Music Department. My focus is on modern chamber music and the works of contemporary composers.
