We need some nominations

By Jay Garmon Contributor ·
Heads up gang, it's time to point fingers and name names. Oh, and Happy New Year.

TR is venturing simultaneously into the uncharted realms of live events and blogging. As part of these efforts, we'd like some involvement from community members, either as featured event speakers and/or featured bloggers.

Our first event will be held in mid February (location TBA) and will be on the subject of "My User: My Problem" (working title), discussing how to implement security policies and technologies that can prevent the end users from knowingly and unknowingly sabotaging a network.

You guys know the TR cliques as well or better than anyone, so we'd like to know who you think is the king-daddy security guru (or gurus, or guru-ess) within the membership. Feel free to nominate yourself, provided you can back it up. The consensus winner/volunteer will very possibly be flown out at our expense to speak as a featured panelist at the event.

Moving right along...anybody want a big fat digital soapbox atop which to shout about IT and tech-related issues? If not yourself, who amongst the membership has insights and opinions so interesting and/or valuable that you'd gladly tune in on at least a weekly basis? The big cheese-types around here are hot to make somebody famous, so cast your blog-Oscar ballots now!

Oh, and both issues have a major ticking deadline attached, so don't feel the need to mull the ideas for a while. Spout off half-cocked ASAP.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, but up until now, I don't think I've shared a whole lot about my job description with you guys. See my "digital soapbox" message for such a description.

My REAL interest would be to write political-type articles. But I think the powers-that-be at TR have had political messages up to their eyeballs.

Why doesn't anyone tell me these posts get made?

Yikes. I'd better start soliciting and posting articles again, if I'm going to get spontaneous "advertisement" like that. Heh.

Er, "thanks" Jay.

My sides ache from the laughter.

I told you on IM when I sent you some sort of link. I sent it again because I thought that I had sent the "Jay's jab at the @political site" by accident.

You did? Wow. I musta been REALLY busy if I didn't even notice.

Sorry 'bout that.

Thanks bro

I appreciate your honesty when you say, "I wasn't paying any attention to what you were saying!" Just kidding. The only reason I remember that is because I remember laughing at Jay's post. :)

I'm not too proud to stand up and say "Hey! I'm a heel!" Such fun, bro.

I think I have a very vague recollection of your message, now that I've had some time to consider it. I've been slightly scattered lately. Mea culpa.
