I am Honored!

by kriggins on April 12, 2009

in Conferences, General

As I was catching up on blogs this evening, I came across this posting on the RSA Security Bloggers blog that gives the list of blogs nominated for the 2009 Social Security Awards.  The awards are to be given out at the Security Blogger's Meetup.

Imagine my surprise when I found Infosec Ramblings on the list in the n0n-technical blogs category.

To the person or persons who nominated me, my sincere thanks. I am honored that you consider this little corner of the blogosphere worthy of sitting with the other fine blogs on the list.

Congratulations to all who were nominated and I am really looking forward to meeting many of you at the meet-up.

-Kevin
