Today 1st January 2010 this blog is three years old, and at the end of 2009 I expanded authors to this blog to include esteemed colleagues in the realm of information security and privacy. I hope that you will enjoy the richness that they will surely add to “Virtual Shadows, the privacy blog” in 2010. Authors added since my last post are Jack (USA) and Martin (Sweden). Jack I see has already added his bio, as has David (Australia), more are to come 🙂
In reflection, and for myself, 2009 has been a good year for my publishing: the book “Virtual Shadows” was published in January. What’s more in 2009 I have been busy publishing articles: in March (Right for Privacy) and May (Talk Differently) with the BCS ITNow, September with FUMSI (Get to Know Your Plumbing), November “The Hindu” (Being invisible online is no longer an option) and December ISSA (A Simple Guide to Data Privacy). Check them out if you feel for some bedtime reading 😉
What’s more my writing has been somewhat influenced by the MBA I am studying with Henley School of Management during the last 1½ years. I have been inspired and driven by my studies, the dynamics of how we communicate and are sharing information on ourselves is changing not only how we reach out and network in our private lives but also within and outside of the organisations boundaries, both physical and logical.
The blog has suffered a little in 2009 as I was busy also preparing for my daughter who was born in September. She is quite beautiful and has added a new dimension of richness to my life.
Hence, it has surely been a beautiful year for myself, both professionally and personally. I am looking forward to an amazing 2010, and I am looking forward to sharing this year with you, regular visitors to Virtual Shadows and with the newly formed Virtual Shadows research team!
Happy New Year!
