Hey all,

It’s been forever since I’ve updated this blog and the blame for that is best distributed between finishing up college, work and the host of other things I sign myself up for. After I finish up some pertinent things(namely graduating), I’ll put some time into updating the whole braxtonehle.com domain and tweaking the look and feel of it.

Til then, I leave you with some interesting links for your learning pleasure:

A few basic updates:

Look to the right and you’ll see a live list of the most recent things I’ve found interesting on my Google Reader feeds

I’ve created a new PGP key(what the heck is that?) and uploaded it to the major keyservers. It is also linked to in the main navigation at the top of the page.

Articles, Videos and Books:

Marcus Ranum on how small system insecurities and flaws can snowball and cost millions down the road.

IPillion.com – Have an IP that’s scanning or doing bad things to your server(s)? Check out this list and see where it’s coming from and who else has had issues with them.

Terry Gray’s Staff Page - Terry is an Associate VP for UW IT that has published a series of very interesting papers and presentations that provide a unique insight into things like network security and copyright enforcement

Surprising Science of Motivation - Dan Pink outlines a different way of motivating people in organizations that challenges the idea of more money = more productivity.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team - Recommended to me by a very gifted project manager, this book outlines the fundamentals of an effective team in a story format that is actually interested. This book arrived from the internets today at 4, I innocently started it only to realize 2 hours later that I had not moved from my chair and finished the book. Buy it, read it, use it.

Check back in a week for some major updates!
