The publications below are compilations of material originally written for CCN Magazine and Lamas Beautywalk from 2002-2004, covering many of the topics that were discussed on radio.  At the time of their original publication, CCN Magazine was a tabloid-sized peridocal distributed throughout the greater Sacramento area with a sister publication named Government Technology.  CCN republished the material on their website,   Lamas Beauty, through a common relationship with Mary Jane Popp, also had an interest in the privacy and security topics, and published many of the same articles in the Beautywalk lifestyle section of the Lamas Beauty website.  From time to time I search for references to my name and find that my articles have been further republished on various blog sites, or presentations that I gave as a security analyst (like this one) are still available to the public.
