This is the 1000th TaoSecurity Blog post. Thankfully, after being broken for months, Blogger fixed the post tracking counter in time for me to notice this milestone.
I started the blog on 8 January 2003 as a place to post word of new Amazon.com book reviews. I haven't read a new book since May, because I have been extremely busy launching my new company TaoSecurity. I plan to resume reading books very shortly, probably starting with Extreme Exploits.
The blog has now evolved into a place where I record tips on using FreeBSD and other operating systems and applications. I also post thoughts on network security monitoring and related security topics. I constantly refer back to posts here to remember how I configured a program or what my thoughts were on a certain subject. I detest keeping bookmarks, so I try to store anything of value here. A bookmark has no context and says nothing about how or why I recorded it. In brief, this blog helps me keep a grip on developments in the tech world.
Looking ahead, I have two new projects in store: the TaoSecurity Podcast and a resource I'm calling OpenPacket.org. You can expect to read more about these in the fourth quarter of this year. I appreciate everyone who reads this blog and I especially enjoy reading your comments and emails. Our next milestone is the blog's third birthday in January, so I hope to see you then!
