Administrivia: Posting Schedule

I’d like to mention something: I do not intend to have a specific posting schedule. I have been tending to post something in the morning and the evening, but I have been noticing lately that I am having way too much fun blogging and there are projects and code and reports that aren’t getting done in as timely a manner. So, what I may do is drop down to one posting a day (approximately)  If you want to check on what’s up here, 7-8pm EST is a good time to look.

On the other hand, the beauty of blogs is that they are asynchronous. So you’re welcome to drop by whenever you want, and I’ll drop postings whenever I want, and we can all link hands and sing “Kumbaya.”

May Be Experiencing Mild Turbulence…

… I’m going to a small conference up in Chicago the next couple days. So I’ll be driving (to avoid the homeland security fol-de-rol) and otherwise may be too occupied to say much. If I seem uncharacteristically quiet, that’s what’s what. It doesn’t mean I hate you, or you’re the last commenter standing. Whether I post or not is going to depend on my activity level at the event.

Offline –

I’m gonna be offline until the 3rd, and then I am into my crazy busy-season.

Philly the 4,5,6
LA the 14,15,16 for a weeeeding
Atlanta the 17,18,19
Raleigh, NC the 20,21
then home for a week and off to Boston, Vienna Austria, and LA.

These are all work gigs; if you want to grab me and talk computer security, I’ll be being “Mister Security” not “Mister soapmaker and general purpose weirdo.”

I’ll keep trying to post stuff but I may not be maintaining a regular schedule or high quality output* unless something happens like I get stuck overnight at the “Gate 4C Motel” – which is where a lot of my stuff gets written and queued up.

Don’t break into my house while I’m away. There are cameras and other things.

 

(* “High quality output” is aspirational)

By The Way

I don’t intend to try to post stuff every day. I’ve been posting a lot of stuff because I’ve had time and stuff to say.

I may occasionally get busy and have work, house guests, travel days, whatever, and not post as much for a while. If that happens, don’t break out the champagne and canapes, yet, I’ll be back.

I’m assuming you’d rather I don’t post “I’m going to be blah blah blah Chicago blah blah” all the time. You don’t care about my personal life, nor should you. I just don’t want you to see me fall silent, start rejoicing, and then be bitterly crushed by disappointment.

Besides, I may fall silent long enough to write and publish “The Strategic Genius’ Guide to Dating ${preferred_gender}”     It’ll depend on whether I can get Chuck Tingle to write the forward or not.

Administrivia

I’m going to Lavecon in Northhamptonshire, and spending a couple days in London at the V&A and the Brit. So my posting frequency will drop slightly. If you’re a new commenter, or want to argue with me, you may experience some delay but I promise you a full measure eventually.

Normal ranting and raving will resume after the 19th.

I will delete this posting upon my return.

A Sort of Editorial Calendar —

I don’t intend to have a magazine-style “editorial calendar” but rather more like an “editorial agenda.” There are some topics I really want to get into, and greatly look forward to discussing with you. But some events are going to haul me haring off in different directions (like Elie Weisel’s death) so I don’t want to be strictly on a clock. Here are some of the topics I intend to dig into, and how I intend to do it:
