about: THOMAS H. PTACEK hopes, by strict attention to business, combined with moderate charges, to merit a fair share of patronage and support.

Chicago. Software security. Recruiting. Formerly: founder @ Matasano. Now: flounder @ Starfighter.

Cliffs notes:

* Call me Thomas.

* Bill daily, never hourly.

* Just use bcrypt.

* Don't build crypto features; use TLS and PGP.

* Standardize your hiring interviews with work-sample tests.

Things I will nerd out obnoxiously about, Cliff Clavin-style: Hiring / Cryptography / Security in general / Consulting / Alcoholic spirits / Cooking / Criminal justice / The law in general / Electronic trading. I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE.
