I’m not much of a social blogger. That is, most all of my posts are technical in nature. I’m going to make an exception this time. With the current state of the economy, all I ever hear is bad news. I was at the Denver Code Camp today talking with a buddy of mine, Dave Yack, and a few others about, what else, the economy. Predictably, the conversation led to declining budgets. We were discussing how budgets everywhere are getting hacked in half or more. Always the problem-solver, Dave suggested we come up with some sort of “Budget Firewall” that would serve to keep the hackers out. This led to countless add-on jokes like “we’d just need to find out what ports management types come in on”. I hope you take this little joke for what it is – an effort to laugh in the face of tough times.
