In recent days, I have switched jobs and made great strides in furthering my personal development.

Classes are going well. Should get a 4.0 this semester. Pursuing that second degree don’t you know.

Attended Indiana Linuxfest last weekend. Not overly impressed with how that turned out. Talked to some others in the local IT community. The plan is to do our own two day track there next year and help make it better. Headed to ThotCon and BSidesChicago this weekend. Looking forward to it. Will definitely try to blog about those when I get back. Then I have tickets to BSidesDetroit on June 1st and 2nd. Night before last I won a ticket to DerbyCon later this year, September 27-29? Tickets don’t even go on sale until this Friday. I definitely lucked out there (as well as saving $150). This year is shaping up to be one of good things.

In InfoSec news, big breaches appear to have temporarily slowed down, not sure if that is a result of the Anonymous arrests, or just that they are not being reported. It is after all bad press when a company or organization gets their name bandied about by big media due to their ineptness or flaw in their security program.

Still involved with the local LUG, that won’t stop either. Anyway, I have to get ready to head to Chicago tomorrow after work. Better get moving.
