The 2015 Linux Jobs Report Is Out -- Strong Demand Continues
Thu, Mar 5th 2015 7:42p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
"Unstoppable Linux Job Market Shows No Signs of Slowing Down" The Linux Foundation in cooperation with Dice released their March 2015 Linux Jobs report. In a phrase, growth for Linux professionals remains strong once again and is growing stronger. If you are looking for a new opportunity, or to expand your existing skill set, Linux is a great way to do that. As I reported in 2013, the trend line for Linux talent progressed upward from 2012 through 2013 and that remains true today. Cloud ser

"Age is Just a Number..." -- George Jedenoff; 97.5 Year Old Skier In Another Inspriational Interview
Thu, Feb 19th 2015 1:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Last year, I commented on George Jedenoff and how much he loves to ski. Well, the passionate 97 -1/2 year old skier returned for another year of carving at Alta, Utah and did another interview with the Ski Utah crew. The adventurous Mr. Jedenoff skis trees, has a great relaxed form, and loves Wasatch powder. This year, he answered several questions from Ski Utah readers and provided fun candid answers, on longevity, diet, how he preps for each ski season, and how he finds ski buddies. An inspira

IBM ConnectED (LS15) Saturday Community Events Time Changes
Sat, Jan 24th 2015 4:10a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Due to the overnight and morning rain, I started working on logistical changes to get the day's Community events included with minimal overlap to other already scheduled Saturday events. This should serve as the Master Schedule for now... as due to traveling to this event, the wonderful teams for the Totally Unsupported IBM Notes Session Database and the AngularJS and Domino demo site. by Mark Roden and Mark Leusink, will not be able to get their sites updated in-time, which is completely

My IBM ConnectED Speaking Schedule -- With My First ChalkTalk
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 11:11p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
In just a few short days, the next iteration of our annual January conference commences. With all of the other ICS related activities I am doing this year outside of IC15 (LS15), I am happy to take a bit of a back seat with the speaking and run my first ChalkTalk session (formerly Birds Of a Feather (BOF)), plus Linuxfest VI on Wednesday. For my ChalkTalk session, I am co-presenting with the wonderful fellow IBM Champion, Ms. Femke Goedhart. We are covering the Personal Privacy Paradigm. A ti

IBM ConnectED -- Get your Linux Fix at Linuxfest VI
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 5:10a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
After several months of planning, I can officially announce that Linuxfest will return to Orlando, for IC15 for its sixth consecutive year. With the compressed schedule this year and the organizing team working diligently to make the event memorable for all the speakers and attendees, we had to schedule this unofficial session differently. Thus, we are in the Swan and one-half hour after the CGS (Closing General Session). We are listed in the Totally Unsupported IBM Notes Session Database as

Get Access -- Voice of the Partner is Live
Wed, Dec 17th 2014 5:10a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
It is with great pleasure that I announce Voice of the Partner is in production! This tool provides IBM Collaboration Solutions business partners a new feedback continuity site to interface directly with IBM. As alluded to within my beta launch blog post, the past three months proved quite busy, culminating in this promised mid-December launch. Please understand this is a volunteer effort for me and the scope of BPs in good standing is massive. Thus, I am breaking the overall group down into

IBM Mobile Connect POODLE Fix
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 5:16a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
IBM just announced a couple of Technotes dealing with IBM Mobile Connect and POODLE. As this product is quite secure by design and a product that I enjoy as customers have a great track record with it in the field, the option to use TLS 1.0 - 1.2 is supported. The new SSL v3 security changes are implemented under APAR IV66131 -- available for IMC 6.1.5 and 6.1.5.1. Thus, if you have not upgraded IMC in the past ten days, then read below and plan your upgrade as appropriate. Here Are The Tec

IBM Protector for Mail Security POODLE Fix
Wed, Oct 22nd 2014 2:20p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
A day after providing two Technotes on SHA-2, TLS, and POODLE for Domino, IBM released two documents to cover their Protector product. The bulletin covers three vulnerabilities and provides details on each. For the workaround document, mind the side effect mentioned at the bottom, as with some sites, this may introduce a risk assessment against delivery versus the exploit's vulnerability. 1.

Silent No More: IBM Makes Security Announcements on SHA-2, TLS, POODLE
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:12a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Today (21 Oct 14), IBM created a set of Technotes covering what appears to be a first step in helping soothe the customer and partner concern on the lack of offered direction and plan for resolving the SHA-1, TLS, and POODLE exploits that exist from years of community support and a yet to be implemented capability for increased security. I offer first step as no date for the patch is provided, just that they are stating their intentions and scope with a solution by year-end, which is my conjectu

New SSL3 Exploit: The POODLE Is Here and Lifting Its Leg
Wed, Oct 15th 2014 3:38a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Here we go again... another blockbuster security exploit with another clever code name is announced. POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption) CVE-2014-3566 specifically allows a man-in-the-middle style attack utilizing an SSL3 connection. Once again, Red Hat does a stellar job offering full details on background, technical specifics, and testing. Google's Online Security Blog post is exceedingly terse when contrasting. Here is what you need to know. What is It? CVE-2014-356
