Tourist in New York


I've been running around like a New Yorker since I arrived in the city yesterday. I had a fantastic tour of Lincoln Center and its security operation yesterday afternoon courtesy of Rob Tarleton, IT director for Lincoln Center and Jeremy Brecher of Diebold (and Tech Sec Advisory Board member.)

Rob and Jeremy and I did a webcast in September about the Lincoln Center"s IP-security project, part of a $1.22 billion overhaul of this world class (and 16-acre) performing arts campus. You can listen the the webcast by going to our homepage and clicking on the gray webcast tab. It's just above my photo.

But before I go, I had another wicked cool tour today Leischen Stelter and I met wiith the World Trade Center Security consultants DVS (Phil Santore, Brian Coulombe and Frank Santamorena) and the WTC security director Louis Barani. We had breakfast at a hotel that overlooks the site, so Leischen and I could see what we were talking about, and then we went over to Tower 7 for a look at some of the security operatiions.

I've got lots more to share about the tour ... and some of my famous foggy iPhone photos to share as well. I've got to run to another event right now
