Blogging from RSA

RSA is just a week away. We’ve missed the past few shows. But this year, Anitian returns and I will be blogging every night from the show. The security industry is still pretty hot these days, so there should be plenty to write about. I plan on spending plenty of time debunking the FUD spreaders and other frothers. Should be fun.

Anyway, stay tuned for more RSA fun.
