We launched a number of press releases at my day job, Interset, yesterday. This was a big deal for me: the most personally rewarding parts of being in a startup are innovating technology, creating value, and generating jobs. We’ve done all three at Interset in a very short period of time, and I could not be more proud of the team.
So, I’ve been very busy lately!
Back in January (has it really been that long?) I formally accepted a role as the Chief Technology Officer of a really cool startup, FileTrek. I got the opportunity to do real-time, big data analytics, in a very exciting field: behavioral analytics as applied to the enterprise security space. I’m working with some great people, and inventing some great things. Check us out!
As part of getting our story heard, I ended up spending a lot of the past six months travelling. Here is, as best as I can reconstruct from my calendar, my life since January as defined by airport codes:
January: YYZ-YOW-YYZ, YYZ-YOW-YYZ, YYZ-YOW-YYZ
February: YYZ-YOW-YYZ, YYZ-MSP-SAN-JFK-SFO-DTW-YYZ
March: YYZ-BOS-JFK-LGA-YYZ-BOS-YYZ, YYZ-YOW-YYZ, YYZ-CLT-SFO-PHL-YYZ-YOW-YYZ
May: YYZ-YOW-YYZ, YYZ-LGA-CLT-IAH-ORD-YYZ, YYZ-ORD-SAN-ORD-CVG-IAD-YYZ
June: YYZ-YOW-PHL-DCA-CMH-DCA-YYZ, YYZ-MIA-IAH-MIA-YYZ
To be clear, this sort of travel schedule is nothing compared to my friends in Field and Sales, but for a technology guy like me, this was something else!
