The Past:

Stagnant Truth

“Do not mistake acquirement of mere knowledge for power. Like food, these things must be digested and assimilated to become life or force. Learning is not wisdom; knowledge is not necessarily vital energy. more…. (will take you to my personal blog, for the rest of this sentiment.)
–J. E. Dinger (Lyte, Clyde Francis., ed. Leaves of Gold. Coslett Publishing, 1948. pg 59)

The Present:

With nearly 30 years of experience helping people with computers, I still cannot tell you how you got that virus. Wisdom is the ability to inject humor into the situation with: “I would have had to have been watching your every move, to know what you did to get that bug.”

The Future:

There are tools I may have to learn, if I am to become part of the force that would protect us from cyber threats.
