Rich and I were joined tonight by a former co-worker and friend of Rich’s, Amrit Williams. Amrit is the CTO of BigFix and blogs over at the Observations of a digitally enlightened mind
blog. This was less of an interview and more of three security
professionals getting together on a Saturday morning to talk about the
events going on in our sphere of influence. And as you might expect
from us, the podcast went longer than we aim for, but only a little.
But most importantly, we had good audio quality for the entire
podcast. Or at least Rich wasn’t fading in and out. The bad part is
we don’t think we changed anything, which means we’ve just been
operating at the whims of Skype and the Internet, but we’ll be keeping
an ear out for problems in the future.

Has it really been two years since I started the podcast? Looking at
the date of the first MP3, it really has been. If you want to listen
to a blast from the past, stick around for the last 10 minutes of the
podcast where Rich and I listen to my first podcast and pick at it
Mystery Science Theater style. Or you can save your eardrums and 10
minutes of your life by quiting before then. I hate listening to my
Thanks to Rich, we have a new site dedicated to the podcast, netsecpodcast.com.
This is where you’ll find the show notes and can subscribe to a podcast
only feed. We’ll occasionally work on joint projects here, but it’s
going to be almost entirely podcast related for the most part.
And congratulations to Paul and Larry
who’ve also reached the two year mark for podcasting. This makes us
some of the earliest security podcasts out there, if not the earliest.

Two weeks ago there was no podcast because I was in Chicago. Last
week I was at a clients until late and Rich took the opportunity to
interview Glenn Flieshman from TidBITS and Wi-Fi Networking News.
But this week I’m back and despite rumors to the contrary Rich has not
had me offed so he can take over the podcast. Not that such rumors
really existed, but sometimes it’s fun to start them.
We have a
good show tonight, since there’s a lot going on right now with huge
purchases, web enabled video cameras and security company founders
being arrested. That’s one of the things I love about working in
security: never a dull moment. Of course, that’s often what we hate
about security too.
