My website hosting changed on the backend quite a while ago, and I decided to redirect terri.toybox.ca to here rather than continue to maintain it. I have all the data, but the site was written in the age of php when I was a web dev and not a security professional. It was time to let it go. For the most part, I’m ok with letting some old content disappear, but one thing that was useful was my (mildly incomplete) list of presentations, teaching and speaking engagements. So that’s been moved to the new site now.
It looks like it’ll need some formatting fixes and I haven’t figured out how I’m going to handle storage of old papers and talk recordings so some of the old links won’t work, but it’s a start.
It really strikes me how much I’ve left academia when I can leave my publication list offline for months and it’s no big deal. Okay, not really offline, it’s still on Google Scholar and LinkedIn, but publishing used to be such a huge part of what I did and it’s weird that it’s not? I’d never intended to stay in academia, but I do miss research and publishing even as much as it is a lot of work. I guess I need to spend some time trying to find research and publication opportunities as part of my day job, but honestly I haven’t even had the energy to do more than one talk this year (thank you pandemic, thank you lack of childcare, but also thank you incredibly ridiculous series of hoops I have to jump through at work to talk about security publicly). But I’m listening to industry security talks today and feeding my brain with other ways of doing things, so it’s not like I feel like I’m stagnating, just that I spend more time incrementally improving on best practices and security communication and less time on “novel solutions to novel problems.”
Huh, maybe that’s where I need to go next: research into security communication and practices? There’s so much to do in here but actually getting data that you can track, let alone publish, is an issue. Oh well, things to noodle on for now.
