Over the past few months I've used my highly unscientific methods to identify new security startups I believe are worth watching over the next 12 months.

10/22/2009
For the past two days I have been back in Seattle. It was almost two years ago I left the city, and was not sure when I'd get a chance to return. Microsoft's BlueHat security conference was a great reason to come back to my favorite rainy city. What is BlueHat?

Ethics, Integrity, and Playing Nice
