Do you have racy photos on Twitter too?

If you're on Twitter you may want to check out your followers - at least their pictures...I'm getting a lot of people with racy photos. Maybe I'm just developing a new fan base of people who feel really comfortable around me! ;-)

And to think that I could have a few hundred more followers on Twitter if I didn't filter out the junk!

Quoted in today's WSJ

If you can, check out today's Wall Street Journal - page A20. I talk about sensitive information being mismanaged on mobile devices. You may already know how I feel about mobile security...what's it going to take to fix this issue?

Swimming in Atlanta

We're getting completely drenched here in the South. Pouring rain nonstop for four days and it's not supposed to let up for another few days. Must be all that "global warming". Seriously we've been hearing about reduced sun spot activity as of late (just not so much in the mainstream media because that would go against their religion). Some scientists (likely the ones whose jobs aren't tied to taxpayer funding) believe sunspot activity affects weather here on the really cold weather we've been having over the past couple of years...and all this rain.

I've always thought that it's quite cocky of man to believe he's powerful enough to change the climate but this guy has beat me to the punch. Some food for thought. That said "man changing the climate" is not what "global warming" is about anyway. But you already knew that.

Anyway, lots of homes and buildings flooded here in my neck of the woods should remind us all that business continuity - even if you work from home - is not something to take lightly. Have a great week, stay dry, and wish us luck!
