Jan 05 2010
The year 2010 is starting with a whimper, not a bang. Yesterday morning it was announced that Securosis and Security Incite are merging, so we had Adrian Lane and Mike Rothman on the show to talk about the event. A little over halfway through the show, Martin’s internet access suddenly died and the rest of the crew were left to have great fun at his expense. There was not an earthquake, but rather a ‘backhaul issue’ at the ISP, whatever that means. At least that’s better than a ‘backhoe issue’, which would probably involve a lot of fiber suddenly going dark. In any case, we finished the show, but this not a great omen for the new year. Unless you’re Rich and Zach, who found the whole thing very amusing.
