I was so busy last week with my frantic Japan trip that I didn't have an opportunity to blog about VeriSign's EV SSL bundle with ScanAlert HACKER SAFE. ScanAlert will be offering VeriSign Extended Validation SSL Certificates to its HACKER SAFE customers at a discount off the regular price.

I won't be able to make it myself, unfortunately. However, I'm anticipating a pretty detailed report on what PayPal discusses, and I'll pass along whatever I learn.

Turns out I've been doing this blogging thing for a year now. A year is an arbitrary milestone in terms of something like running a blog. Nonetheless I can't help looking back to see how I did.

In my very first posting I decided to take a stab at what I was seeking to accomplish, at least at that moment. In part I wrote,

I read and hear and think about this stuff all day, and it's clear to me that some demystification is in order. I see things in writing that simply are not true. I look at sites (including major sites) that still seem to misunderstand why we use this technology and how to follow best practices. I hear statements spoken aloud by my friends and neighbors that indicate the negative effect these bits of misinformation are having on the average online user.
