I have been considering starting to blog for a long time. There were false starts and pronouncements that I would begin that were left unfulfilled. As I write this first entry I realize that I picked the correct name for this journal – Tech Siege. The reason is that since before I left the military I have been trying to grok it all. The more I assimilated the more I realized I was clueless. I have a family and non-technical interests, but I find them shunted to the side often as I pursue that next concept that will finally round out my knowledge.
So with luck this blog will help me (and you maybe) focus on striking the balance. I don’t expect to be gushing very often about non-technical topics, but I assume they will slip in without my being lynched. If I do it right then I will learn as much (if not more) than anyone else who reads here. Isn’t it true that when we look at code we wrote last year, that is when we realize how we have grown as a developer.
Computer Security will be a common theme and that allows for mammoth tangents. We will see how it goes, only time will tell.
