Inevitable Birthday Post: 30

Inevitable Birthday Post: 30

This morning after Dave left the house, my mom and dad called to wish me a happy birthday. While I was talking with Dad, he mentioned bragging about me to a colleague at ISC West, the annual security conference he visits in Vegas. Vegas has featured prominently in my dad’s professional history; it’s a big reason why part of iD takes place there. (In other news: part of iD takes place in Las Vegas, at a casino called The Akiba.)…

Growing up, my mom and I called the month of October the High Holy Days. October was my Advent, each day a little colder and darker and sweeter as Halloween drew ever nearer.

My second "Bebop" post is up at Tor!

My second "Bebop" post is up at Tor!

And you can read it here. I’m slowly figuring out the Tor.com backend. It may sound strange, but at this point I think I’ve worked with just about every major blogging platform there is at one time or another. (I should put that on a CV somewhere, now that I think of it.) Even so, I find that I write most of my posts (for everyone, not just Tor) in HTML. It’s just easier, once you know the tags. Not…
