Thanksgiving 2010

Time to reflect or count my blessings of the last 12 months (also known as four cycles of 90 Days for those that know me, or four quarters of 13 weeks for the accounting folk among us).

What if your plans to help get America back to work came up short? I don't accept rejection. Not part of one's nature to accept detours or delays... so why do it?

What if organizations that were supposed to help, didn't. At least not really. Saying one thing and doing another sounds a lot like that favorite Ronald Reagan quip about the fear that accompanies that expression, "I am from the government and I am here to help."
Allow me a new twist: I am from the "for profit" side of free enterprise, and together, we can make a difference.
Mark your calendar for December 6, 2010 at 10:00 am EST.

It will be anything but business as usual.

Guess that is the Marine in me talking...

Enjoy the holiday.

be extra careful at public wifi hot spots

public service announcement

last week, a new software tool was released to the public that allows anyone at a "public" wifi to hijack your facebook or other app if you use it in a public access area. so be careful.  yes, you were always subject to this "token hijacking" scheme, but the general public did not have ready access to the tools to pull it off. now, they do. the authors claim to have made the code public to help bring awareness to the problem. i will reserve judgement.

be sure to look for the "https" in URLs to know your session is secure. gmail added this feature to protect people. but most apps are not protected. in other words, be careful. you should also notice the padlock in your browser [see image above] is "locked" to indicate an encrypted session.

of course i assume that everyone running wifi at home has set up the encryption mode and disabled SSID broadcasting... but i digress.

got questions? ask. --ski

P.S. i have not mentioned the tool in question in an attempt to help prevent it's spread until more developers take corrective action...

Did you fall back?

I hate the end of Summer

Are you in Stark County, Ohio

Main St Stark

We are closing in on day 60 of the 90 days required to launch over at Main St Stark. A lot of moving parts... "A lot of ins and outs" as The Dude would say (aka The Big Lebowski, no relation to me that I know of).

So, consider answering these two questions:
  1. Are you living or working in Stark County, Ohio?
  2. Have you been working on a business idea?
If you answered "Yes" to both questions, let's talk.
