FEB 10

I spent a lot of time in 2006 and 2007 working on the WiMedia Logical Link Layer Control Protocol specification (WLP spec for short). Publishing a specification like WLP is a lot like filing a patent. You do a lot of the work early on, and then the actual publishing process takes a really long time. It's almost anti-climatic when it does finally get published.

In any event, it's available on the WiMedia web site if you're interested (unfortunately there is a click-through license agreement that you must fill out to read the spec). I worked on the security sections, sections 6.6 and 7.2 and annexes A and C.

My shingles are famous!

A Buffalo TV station ran a segment on a new Shingles vaccine a few days ago, and the producers of the show contacted me to ask for permission to use one of my photos. The original video is available, but requires Internet Explorer.

Various medical professionals have contacted me a few times before to ask for permission to use my shingles photos. I'm sure it has something to do with the popularity of the image on the Google image search "shingles" (currently number one!).
