New look

Welcome to the new look & Feel of the blog. In fact, I changed the engine of the blog. I use now FlatPress. The reason is simple. simplePHPBlog was not anymore maintained and active for two years. FlatPress is active and some developers are even writing new plug ins.

The second reason to change the look and feel was to be more consistent with my personal site.

For a few weeks, there may be some minor adjustments. Do not hesitate to report to me some eventual bugs.

Happy new year 2009

I wish to all my readers a prosperous and interesting year 2009. I will not take the risk to make some forecasts. Nevertheless, I will share some thoughts with you.

Will 2009 bring new initiatives in content protection? How will evolve music? Totally DRM free at the end of the year? As long as we will not see new business models appear there will be a problem.

The battle will continue between User Generated Content sites (YouTube, WAT, DailyMotion, Tudou, …) and content owners. Everybody has the feeling that the solution is to share the advertising revenues. But who has an idea on how to make a positive business with UGC? Are we sure that advertising revenues will be sufficient? And the fight with be on the ratio between UGC and content owners. Meanwhile, UGC sites will need to filter out copyrighted contents.

It will be interesting to see at which speed some candidates for the succession of SHA will be dismissed.

And you, what do you foresee?

I make the move. I open my blog. You will find news, analysis on these news and thoughts about topics related to security.
To start, it will be Web 1.0. You will not be able to directly edit your comments. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to share them with me through mail. I will switch to Web 2.0 as soon as possible.
