I Am Back... Or Am I?

I have been absent from blogging for such a long time (although I frequent Facebook a lot, which is a form of micro-blogging, if nothing else) that I decided to delete my blog editor from the toolbar on my Mac.

In doing so, I started to wander through some of the old posts...fatal, huh? I have no idea if this marks the resurgence of my blogging activity or a one-off experiment to see if I can actually still post to the Web (if you are reading this then you know that I succeeded in that, at least!)

A lot has happened to me in the past year - probably all of the blog-worthy stuff, to be honest. I am not sure how much of my life right now I want to share in detail. And a lot of what has happened to me in the last year or two I am prevented from sharing in detail by virtue of a nasty confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement.

Piqued your interest, eh? Just so happens I retired from NSS Labs, the company I founded 25 years ago, back in June of 2016. The last couple of years there were not the most pleasant of my life, mainly because we took money from a bunch of assholes that had no clue about security, no idea what they had actually bought, and almost ran it into the ground. Luckily the non-disparagement agreement only covers NSS Labs and not any of the investors, so maybe I could get a few interesting posts out of that....

Oh, and before you ask, I got divorced too. Yeah... quite the year, huh?

Looking forward to 2017 and what it will bring...
