I moved away from Chicago but all my friends are still there … and they are all in the same information security groups. Yesterday was an event called ChiSec (Chicago Security?) and Damon, eGleb, Jason, and Sherrod were all there. The only one missing? Me!

Well, I have settled in with another great crowd, Midnight Research Labs (MRL), who meet once a month in SF.  The only problem is that due to my travel, work, school, etc schedule I have not been able to make one of the meetings.

At least I'm back, safe and sound, from São Paulo, Brazil.  This week and next I'm working on school.  The following week I'll be on the beach in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a vacation.  The big question is, will I be allowed to bring my laptop?  I'm saying yes, but the boss says no.
