2013-04-03 Geeking out with Marcus Ranum - Take 2
My last session
with Marcus in February may have lacked "Marcus", but there was enough participation and positive feedback that he
asked me to come back and have a more detailed discussion. This time, we had a chance to dig much deeper into the topic and
came up with a couple of interesting ideas that we are now percolating on. Perhaps this will lead to a new tool in our kit.
2013-02-19 Geeking out with Marcus Ranum
I was looking forward to spending some quality
time with Marcus today talking about logging
and log analysis. Unfortunately, Marcus fell victim to the Webcast gremlins at a hotel in Germany and
was not able to join me. I still had a good time talking with Allan
about all things "logging" but I am looking forward to geeking our with Marcus some other time.

I had the honor and privilege of hosting ISOI 11 in January.
There was an amazing array of speakers and topics. I can't wait for ISOI 12!
