I’m a geek (no surprises there), and thanks to too many hours hunched of the keyboard in the dark coding away into the small hours I’ve come to resemble the stereotype; overweight, four-eyed and (preferably) in black. I always assumed that this was me, and was happy with that; but towards the end of last summer there appeared to be an increase in geeks and hacker-types pushing to get fitter: Hackerrun came and went, and a couple of my clients participated in a local 10k run.

When I first heard about Jayson’s book, Dissecting the Hack: The F0rb1dd3n Network I was really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy. Without going through the backstory, getting a copy could now be difficult. The community response to the situation has been outstanding, I don’t think any other industry would pull together […]
Being the other side of the pond I wasn’t able to attend Black Hat, but I have been keeping a keen eye on the posted conference materials and talk recordings being released after the conference’ close. As I’ve recently been researching the latest buzz of Cloud Computing, naturally I was initially drawn to the talks […]
Going through my inbox, today seems to be a good day for sharing links. So I thought I pass some of these on, may be of use to others too. IronGeek’s Security and Forensic podcasts: Links to the latest episodes of the podcasts that are regularly listened to by IronGeek, in chronological order. Shouldn’t be […]
I recently recieved my renewal reminder for the BCS, I’ve been increasingly disappointed with the ‘advantages’ of being a member. Whilst I don’t like not being a member of a professional body for my craft, I simply cannot justify the cost any longer.
