Well, my good friend and blogging compatriot Martin McKeay has finally made it to the big time by actually having a press release issued about his move to StillSecure. I can honestly say that I have never known someone personally that had his own press release. Wow. I can count the Great McKeay as a close friend!
In all seriousness, Martin deserves this. He is a very well known figure in the security world as a security guru, he is a great writer and security journalist, and he is an all around nice guy. I count myself lucky to have him as a friend, and this could not have happened to a better guy.
All that being said, what about the title of this post? Well, I think StillSecure also deserves congratulations. I have known Alan for about a year now, and I have known Mitchell for quite a few months. And I have to say that these guys deserve Martin just as much as Martin deserves this great move. Alan and Mitchell are great guys, no matter what everyone says about them (sorry, I can’t be nice to people without jabbing them a little – I’m sure it comes from my terrible childhood, which led to my total lack of self esteem and utter lack of respect for my fellow humans, but in retrospect helped developed my writing skills because that is all I had to do in that closet I was locked in for most of my teenage years, but I digress – **sniff**).
But seriously, Alan and Mitchell have done so much to move the security industry forward. Even if you don’t count their work at StillSecure, you still have two guys who are blogging and plugging away at trying to make the security industry a fun and exciting place to work. They deserve to have a great talent like Martin out there evangelizing.
So I say congrats are deserved all around. God bless and good luck to all of you.
