Today, 8 January 2008, is the fifth birthday of TaoSecurity Blog. I wrote my first post on 8 January 2003 while working as an incident response consultant for Foundstone. 2087 posts (averaging 417 per year !?!) later, I am still blogging.
My pace has slowed during the last few months, mainly because I have been spending more time reading in my off hours. I have also found less really gripping security events to report. I try not to jump on the bandwagon, so if you see a lot of coverage for a certain event I will probably not report it. I might chime in if there's an uncovered angle or I particularly want to record my thoughts on the issue.
I plan to continue blogging, especially with respect to network security monitoring, incident detection and response, network forensics, and FreeBSD when appropriate. I especially enjoy reading your comments and engaging in informed dialogues. Thanks for joining me these five years -- I hope to have a ten year post in 2013!
Don't forget -- today is Elvis Presley's birthday. Coincidence? You decide.
The image shows Elvis training with Ed Parker, founder of American Kenpo. As I like to tell my students, Elvis' stance is so wide it would take him a week to react to an attack. Then again, he's Elvis.
I studied Kenpo in San Antonio, TX and would like to return to practicing if my shoulder cooperates!
