I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

I subscribe to Bruce Schneier's CRYPTO-GRAM newsletter. It's a very interesting e-mail covering the world of security. He sends it out once a month, and in his October 2014 e-mail, he announced that he had just finished writing a book.

This new book clocks in at 80,000 words, and its title is "Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World" (publisher: Norton). In his newsletter, he writes about what he's going to do now that he's done with the "all-consuming" task of writing. (His answer: write shorter pieces!)

I crave the ending of my own project. I want to get back to playing the guitar. I want to attend more meet-ups. Mostly, I want to dig into new technology. (I have Manning's book on Solr and a book on Ruby internals by Pat Shaughnessy.) It'll be fun to have discretionary time again. Until then, I'll be writing.

Thank You for reading!
