Bruce Schneier is the world's leading security researcher. I was pleased to see him say this

"I run an open wireless network at home. There’s no password, and there’s no encryption. Honestly, I think it’s just polite. Why should I care if someone on the block steals wireless access from me? When my wireless router broke last month, I used a neighbor’s access until I replaced it."

From my side, life is work, but work is very good. My article about Amazon EC2 was published, and I've got a second one in an upcoming issue. If it that sort of resource sounds useful to you, but a bit too complicated you might be interested in RunBlast.com. SNPedia.com continues to grow, and attract attention from the right people. I've been able to distill some of my experiences building it, into a WikiLIMS which has so far been purchased by National Cancer Institutes, a Navy facility, and CSHL.
