Well, hi there! It's been a while. Sorry about that. It seems my personal site blogging has curtailed the past *mumble mumble* months. ;)
So, here's the deal: I changed jobs in March. It sucked. Badly. I knew by the 2nd day that I'd made a horrible error. But... going back wasn't an option... and so, I looked for a forward step. Which took a while.
Over the Summer I thought it'd be fun to, ya know, once again suffer a depressive episode that included drinking myself into oblivion one night, expressing rather dark thoughts to my wife (while blacked out) that led to my relinquishing my booze for a few months and going dry. But I digress...
The good news is: I'm feeling much better! I've changed jobs, heading over to Ellucian to play security architect for my manager from AOL days (the only person who's managed me successfully for more than 12mos).
The other good news is that I'm finally getting the writing bug back and hope to start contributing here again on a regular basis. I've done some writing over the past couple months, but all for clients, not for myself. Time to change that up a little bit.
Given my security architecture focus, spanning traditional data centers to hosted/colo to cloud/AWS, my hope here is to be equally broad in focus. As such, don't be surprised if I touch a lot of topics going forward.
And, best of all, if there are specific topics you'd like to see address, please hit me on twitter and I'll do my best to produce a post on the topic!
