Moving Forward into 2016

Those of you who follow this blog have doubtlessly noticed that I haven’t posted anything here since mid-December.  My absence has been for good cause, however.  As I’m sure you’ve noticed the main site has undergone a serious reboot with the blog to follow suit shortly.  This has consumed a serious amount of my time around the holidays.  There are several other exciting projects that are also underway that are keeping me busy.  Below is a quick rundown of what to expect in the coming year:


There are three changes coming to the blog.  Most superficially, and as mentioned above, the look of the blog will be changing sometime this month to mirror the look and feel of the main site.  Next, and perhaps most importantly the blog will also be encrypted with https by the end of this month (like the main site currently is).  Finally, I intend to post longer-form articles here in the coming year and as a result may post as infrequently as once every two to three weeks.

Complete Privacy and Security Desk Reference: Volume 1 (Digital)

I spent a couple of weeks with Michael Bazzell last month working on our upcoming joint work.  We made excellent progress but due to legal review and some other unforeseen issues this work will likely not be available until late March.  Rest assured we are working hard to get this book into your hands as quickly as possible.  You may also notice the title has changed since my last post about this work to include “Volume I (Digital)”.  This is because we had such a large raft of content this work will be broken into at least three volumes.
