"But I'm a plumber..."
I've spent a lot of time with WS-Security lately, partly because of the bruhaha over its use in MsComService, and partly because I'm digging more deeply into WSE 2.0. Like most of my friends (and a penguin Gudge knows), I'm a plumber. I like spending time thinking about how to program with XML messages (feeding my reputed addition). But I realized last weekend that there are limits, even for me. I realized that I want someone else to take care of security for me... It's not that I'm not interested - I think it's a fascinating topic. But I have too many other things going on to lose myself in it, and I don't trust myself to build something secure if I have to worry about all the details of signing, encryption, nonces, hashes, etc. myself. Hopefully a day will soon come when I can simply request a secure channel to a distant service and sit back and relax, confident that someone else has thought about the hard security problems for me. Then I can spend more time thinking about what ...

Changes in the works...
Sam welcomed me back to the blogosphere... Your points are well taken. People here are very aware of the fact that developers may well look to Microsoft.com's services as an example to emulate, so they try to make sure they do the right thing. In this case, there's a been a lot of confusion around the fact that WS-Security really offers levels of protection and, in this case, the level required is pretty low. That said, the guys who built the service are working on the details for replay detection. I'll keep you posted as I find out more... In the same thread, Dare commented that the use of WS-Security in this context doesn't make sense to him and that a token like the one used in the Google service makes more sense to him. The problem with adding a token to every operation is that it goes in the body of the message. Since the goal in microsoft.com's case is to consume the token at a router that then passes the message on, it needs to be in a header so as to avoid violating the ...

I met this new girl in my Chemistry lab class today. She had bleached hair and a buzz cut. She had her ear pierced and some cool sticky design thing on it, too. She had a big wooden ring on, too. She wasn't dressed very fancy, I'd even say a bit drab. But there was something about her highly intriguing. She seems like a nice enough person. She's majoring in creative writing (an interesting subject, but probably not very profitable-- which she admitted. I thought it was cool that she was pursuing something for her own interests, even if it may not have any commercial value in the end. She's all about bettering herself, which is a rather attractive quality. She's also going to minor in music, probably vocal. She's a year ahead of me (if I'm classified as a freshman) which is also kind of attractive. I think it's refreshing to find people interested in bettering themselves with an education instead of idolizing Brittany Spears or WWE superstars like Kurt Angle and Triple H. I'll post ...

Until We Meet Again
Dear People, With some sorrow, I write you this note. Since my front page at the Human Resources site at About.com turned into a blog several months ago, I find that it is a daily struggle to find something interesting and insightful to say on each site every day. This site is most neglected because of the volume of visitors daily to my About site. This, plus, I need to take the time I invest in updating this blog to do four new projects. I need to begin marketing a "How to Mentor" program that I wrote and developed. It was piloted with great success at a major university. It is a step-by-step guide to developing, implementing and evaluating a mentoring program complete with monthly conversation guides for the mentoring pair. Second, I need to begin work on a book proposal. Third, I'd like to start a cooking website. (I'm a spicy, from scratch, almost every day, inventive cook.) Finally, I'd like to start a professional website for change management and for people who must mentor ...

Just an excitable boy
I'm supposed to be packing and scrambling to do 1800 things before I leave for NY in the morning, but the Warren Zevon documentary started, and I just took a peak as I started a snack and it's half an hour in now, and ripping my heart apart. (Before I proceed--actually, I'm writing this last, but hate cluttering up the ending. VH1 will be showing it several times this week: InsideOut, and you want the one specifically on Warren. It runs an hour, and there's a little more on it here. It's absolutely amazing--if you like him--and packed with a lot of his best songs, which are just killing me.) I don't think I explained properly before. I was horrified when John Lennon was shot down and depressed when Joe Strummer died, but the loss there was limited to a great artist, someone whose work I greatly admired. The Clash probably the single most powerful effect on me of any artist ever, so when Joe Strummer died, that was a blow. But nothing quite like Warren Zevon. Of all the artists and ...

Celebrate Life: Workplace Remembrance of September 11
Dear People, I'll duplicate a website post here because it is an important one as we approach September 11. This year in my client company, I think we'll pause for a few minutes of silence in remembrance of September 11, 2001 and in remembrance of all other tragedies experienced by innocent people. People in workplaces around the world will remember September 11 as a day of tragedy, sorrow, remembrance, honor, and celebration. No matter how you decide to commemorate September 11 - and I believe some commemoration is worthwhile in every workplace - take these words from Gary Lear, President and CEO of Resource Development Systems, LLC, to heart. Gary Lear expresses the views of many employers when he reminds us, "I'm not sure how important it is for businesses and other organizations to have some sort of observance. Of course, some will have been more impacted by this event than others, and I'm sure that will also impact upon their decision about activities. Whatever your ...
