Since our Imperial Federal Government wants more of its “fair share” of taxes from me for 2008, I’m focusing on minimizing my overhead this year. This means no traveling out to RSA for this week’s show.
I was originally going to go – especially since I can get in for free on a press/blogger pass. But once I started adding up the other costs (plane, hotel, transportation, meals, and other fees/taxes/etc. in the big government town of SFO) I just couldn’t justify it. It came down to spending that $1,500-$2,000 on networking and furthering my career and the field we work in OR me contributing that money to Obama so he can, in turn, spend it on one of his (and Bush’s) ridiculous government programs we don’t need. They have the guns, and thus, they win this battle…But not the war.
Pardon, I just had to get that off my chest.
Anyway, I’ll be tracking the goings on in SFO this week and if I see anything worth mentioning I’ll be sure to put in my two – I mean one – cent worth.
Have a great week!
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
