Blackhat 2007

I'm about 24 hours away from making the yearly pilgramage to Blackhat in Las Vegas. This year is going to be a little different from last year. Yes SPI Dynamics has a booth and we are speaking again on the perils of the Internet but this time around we find ourselves in the middle of making a journey from SPI Dynamics to HP. For those of you who don't know, HP announced their intention to purchase SPI Dynamics about 30 days ago. Over those past 30 days and well, many weeks before it was public it's been an exciting journey. For me however it's also one that started a little over 7 years ago when I learned of a company called Perfecto Technologies. I joined Perfecto shortly aftwards and the web application world has been my entire world since then. It's now with a new excitement that I look around the corner on what will deffinitly be the start of an entierly new era. We find ourselves on a tipping point now and in the next 12 months this market will go farther than it has in the last 7 years.

So Blackhat is going to special this year, it's a time to enjoy catching up with customers and friends in the community but also a chance to let loose just a little bit more than usual for me and the entire SPI crew, so if you see us, give us a shout and come join the fun.

See you in Vegas!
