7 Deadliest UC Attacks Mentioned at Enterprise Connect

Enterpriseconnect2011I've been very pleased by the comments I've received from people at the Enterprise Connect show this week in Orlando who have read the book. A couple of people mentioned they've bought it for the Kindle while at the show. And analyst Blair Pleasant mentioned the book a couple of times in one of her sessions (Thanks, Blair!).

As an author, it's wonderful to hear that the book is really helping people understand UC security issues.

Thanks again for all the kind words and mentions!

Great (long!) Article on Node.js in The Register

TheregisterWhat is Node.js all about? How did it come about? What prompted Ryan Dahl to create Node? What other languages did he try? Who are some of the companies using Node.js, and why? What does Google think about Node.js, given that they maintain the V8 JavaScript engine used by Node? What are the kind of performance gains you can see in Node?

Answers to all those questions and many more are in a lengthy piece on The Register titled “The Node Ahead: JavaScript leaps from browser into future“. It’s a well done article and rather than excerpt it here, I’d encourage you to go take a look at the full piece. Interesting to read about some of the background of which I was not aware. Good stuff!
