Today, may I introduce you to our youngest daughter, Holly, who is serving a  mission for  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in England, the country where I served my mission 40 years ago.  This week, we received a nice collection of photos taken since she arrived in mid February.  This is my favorite.

Godspeed, my beautiful daughter!

Please join me in saluting the veterans of World War II. My dad and dad-in-law are but two member of this extraordinary group of brave individuals. They both celebrate their 87th birthdays this year. I take my hat off to them and all those who served with them in defense of our freedom.

BBC NEWS | Camels’ milk could hit UK shelves.

My son lived for two years in Mongolia.  We enjoyed the photos he sent of himself riding on camels and of camels hauling wood into little town where he lived.  It would be great to see camel milk to become a growing export for the impoverished Mongolians.

Hyper-Connected Christmas Eve

A great tradition of our family is to gather at the kitchen table after Christmas Eve festivities, drink hot chocolate and talk with each other. As we did so this year, we suddenly realized that we were all connected to the Internet, interacting on Facebook, Twitter and blogs using a variety of devices – extending our Christmas Eve chatter to people far removed from our physical home. Not shown in this photo are my iPhone and the desktop computer on the kitchen desk behind me as I was taking the photo.  Just another example of how technology has changed and enriched our lives. 

With sincere apologies to Holly for a very unflattering photo!

My dear wife give me an Amazon Kindle for my birthday today! What an enjoyable little device! I am looking forward to loading it up with books and reducing the weight of my briefcase a bit. Plus, I’m experimenting with the basic wireless web access it provides and have some interesting ideas on how it will help me in more ways than just being a cool reading device.

Thanks again, Claudia!

Identity Deserves our Best

Author: Mark Dixon

In his NetworkWorld Identity column today, Dave Kearns quotes Ping Identity CEO Andre Durand speaking about the Golden Guardian comic strip. I particularly like Andre’s comments about “life, energy and passion”:

“I believe we’re at an important juncture in our industry, one that will require everyone do their part. If we fail, we could become like so many other industries where life, energy and passion have left, and all that is left is apathy. Identity is so important, it deserves our best.

Yes, Identity is important.  It does deserve our best.  This industry impacts so many facets of our professional and personal lives.  The threats to privacy and security are real.  But the benefits for successful Identity management implementation are also real.  It is a great time to be involved.

Thanks, Andre, for your profound words.  Thanks, Dave, for sharing these thoughts with us.
