This is a post about posting. Expect changes, deletions, corrections and improvements.
From my first post in July 2017:
I expect much of the content here to be around the subject of what we now call Cyber Security, since this is a field I began researching around 1990 and have worked professionally within for years in both an offensive and defensive capacity. Cyber Security (or just security as we used to call it) now intersects with several of my other interests including geopolitics, propaganda, public policy, and privacy. That’s why I fund a geopolitical think-tank of the Political Realism school.
Where notes lead to ideas, and ideas to projects, I like to turn those projects into companies, make some sales, and solve some problems for paying customers. You can read a little more about a couple of those companies here.
As each post is made it will be removed from this list.
