My Blog is called "Security Thoughts" which is rather plain but explains pretty much what it is about.

It is about Information Security more than physical security but those of you who, like me, have a CISSP or other such qualification know that physical security plays a big part in Info Sec. As does having a "security conscious" mindset.

I would like to just dump all the thoughts in my mind onto this page (and from now on I will use Firefox ver2 with its spell check function). But I am interested in Information Security so that will be the main focus of this Blog. But I don't want to limit myself.

Stay tuned.

Initial Thoughts

Right, here we go.

Post number 1.

According to the blog article on Wikipedia:

"Gartner Group forecasts that blogging will peak in 2007, levelling off when the number of writers who maintain a personal website reaches 100 million. Gartner analysts expect that the novelty value of the medium will wear off as most people who are interested in the phenomenon have checked it out, and new bloggers will offset the number of writers who abandon their creation out of boredom. The firm estimates that there are more than 200 million former bloggers who have ceased posting to their online diaries, creating an exponential rise in the amount of dotsam and netsam (i.e. unwanted objects) on the Web."

So, is my Blog just for jumping on the bandwagon? Or is it more than that?

Well, at least by submitting this one little comment onto the huge Internet for Google to preserve for ever I become Time magazine's person of the year. Which is not bad going for a few minutes of playing around while on the Company's payroll.

It means I join such greats as JFK (former president), Nelson Mandela (former president) and Rudi Giuliani (for President!). Of course, also in the same company is Stalin and Hitler.

This is not the first time I have left my footprints on the virtual sands of the Internet, if I google (lowercase "g") myself I find little traces of Me all over. Some are surprisingly insightful, (incite-fool?) and some are quite embrazzering.

Blogging is new to me - this is my first geniuine post. And I am amazed at how easy it is. Well done blogger. I look foward to doing more posts as soon as possible. Starting with the next one - what this blog is all about anyhow.
