Talisker and Matjes take their bodyguard duties seriously.  Nobody is getting to this baby.

We didn't have the full eclipse here in Hannover, and I'm not really equipped for solar photography, but hey.. I gave it a go.

Ha.. nice.  Well, I guess we'll be in the USA someplace come the autumn.  Enjoy Malta in my absence!

It's interesting the attitude presented in this article. It's great that business leaders are suddenly taking a very great interest in (cringe) "cyber security". However, it's unlikely that when they're asking the awkward questions they'll end up pointing the finger back at themselves, but they should.

The awkward reality is that IT security isn't a 6 month project, to get it right you have to be actively working on it all the time. Sure, you can make improvements with a big push, but it will all be for nought if you don't then learn to work differently. You have to make it a priority, and accept that it impacts on your ability to execute your plans at the optimal time-scale. Accept that it is an overhead on everything you do.   

In a few weeks time all the fuss about the Sony hacks will die down, and people will care less about information security again. If the balance between delivering projects and maintaining security is to be reset, the world will need business leaders who really understand both these issues and the day to day realities of their businesses as a whole. It seems that the need for good CTOs and CIOs is greater than ever, and I suspect that the supply of such people is vanishingly small.
Why cyber security is now on every board member’s agenda.

... also it attracts the unicorns that live in the sewers to climb out of your toilet bowl and leaving it smelling unicorn fresh!

This morning on Littlestone beech. Matjes was enjoying the freezing wind whipping across the Dungeness peninsula.

What does the Ubuntu Phone have to do with Docker and cloud applications? More than you might imagine...
 
And again, with hand signals!
