In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry features picks from Jack Daniel, the self-proclaimed security curmudgeon and peer-described “glue” of our industry.

Perhaps best known as the co-founder of Security BSides, there are many accolades of Jack’s professional success, and I might say the more subtle, softer side of Jack is often overshadowed by his well-developed curmudgeonly persona. The short version is that he wins awards, does great things, helps lots of people, and will never turn a blind eye or hurried goodbye to a friend in need. He does all this while sporting an exceptionally long beard and skeptical brow, both of which he’s well known for. (more…)

Mystery Solved: SQUIRREL (An Ode to…)

For months I’ve wondered
with eager anticipation
how Hoff, Jack and crew
created this new SQUIRREL Nation

I prayed, I questioned, I pondered
for mental emancipation
but the enigma just grew
until I clicked the Disney station

And so now I’ve uncovered
the source of SQUIRREL’s creation
I bet no one ever knew
about the SIMP-elation

I present to you all
for your viewing pleasure
the definitive source of SQUIRREL

Happy Friday !

Well, I’m getting more and more excited about the upcoming Security Bloggers Meetup at RSA.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having a brief run-in with Alan Shimel and Ryan Russell just this week, so I can cross them off my ‘yet to meet’ list and add them to the ‘looking forward to seeing again’ list.

With my recent addition of (and addiction to) Twitter, I’ve had the opportunity to chat and swap semi-meaningless banter with a variety of other SBN members, especially the ‘glue’ of the event, Jennifer Leggio, and some of the main ‘characters’… a fitting term I’d say… including Martin McKeayThe Hoffmeister,  Rich Mogull, Ryan Naraine, Mister Brad Feld, the second Jack Daniel I now know, plus our recently-crowned greatest live-tweeter everBen J and several others- I’m still learning who’s who and who’s going to the Meetup at RSA. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone, but please hop on the SBN site and check out the latest blogs and member links.

You’ll definitely be seeing more info and updates from me as we get closer to RSA, and I plan to try and blog regularly while there to let you all know what shenangians are going on. Until then, here’s a little more info to stay in the loop!

Want to know more? You can find more blog links on SBN and a fit-to-twit list at (the other) Jennifer’s Security Twit post.

Want to watch the event Live? If you’re a regular reader of my blog, or any of the other SBN group, you’ll get a chance to join us virtually. Evidently they (or I guess ‘we’) will be streaming live with conferencing and video blogs. Check this link for details on live event streams. Guaranteed to be entertaining!
