It’s been a year, and I thought this marked a great opportunity to revisit my positions of a year ago, when I was naive to the inner workings of the organization, and see if they’re still valid and in my cross-hairs.

Each year we go through the same cycle of love and hate during the annual (ISC)2 Board of Directors elections. Across the social media worlds, the apathy and frustration come head-to-head with excitement and hope. Disenfranchised members ask “why vote?” and “who cares?”, or make comments about how “nothing will change”. The more engaged crowd, led by hope and motivated by incremental change pushes for engagement and participation.

The great Nothing at Security Uncorked

I hesitate to post here today. I’m looking at my recent blogging history and I’m saddened. It’s as though The great Nothing has come and devoured this digital land of mine.

I didn’t fall off the face of the Earth though, and the Nothing hasn’t completely taken ownership this spot. I’ve been writing, as usual for other media outlets and analyst groups. Some of that content is publicly available and I have failed you, my readers, in linking those posts here.

And so, my sad eyes look now upon a single grain of sand; the sole remaining piece of my digital home, seemingly consumed by The Nothing. As I imagine this blog restored to its full potential, with more content, education and hilarity, I see a glimmer of hope and a landscape manifesting in front of me.

“We can’t wait for a snail. Can I carry you?”
“Don’t worry, it’s a racing snail!”
“Oh but, but, we can’t even wait for a racing snail.”
“Tally ho!”
“Hey, it really is a racing snail!”

Help Bail JJ Out of Jail – MDA

Help Bail JJ Out of Jail! 

They’re coming to take me away… Not to the funny farm; they’re locking me up for good!

I’m proud to tell you that I’m going “behind bars” to help in the fight against muscle disease. I’m joining other community leaders to help raise critical funds for MDA, and I need your help to reach my bail!

As many of my friends already know, in 1999 we lost my Grandmother, Virginia Jabbusch, to her fight with ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Read more at Anyone who’s gone through that can tell you it is undoubtedly one of the most painful and difficult things to experience.

One day, in my lifetime, I hope to see a cure for ALS and other muscular diseases. For today, what I want to do is help raise money for MDA to help families living with MDA. Among other things, this 2012 Lock-Up will help send kids to MDA Summer Camp.

ANY amount helps, no matter how small. I say this because, I fear my getting locked up will be a little bit like the Ransom of Red Chief, and I’m going to need all the help I can get! There are at least 3 people paying money to keep me IN jail.
