This week I am in Manhattan attending the Information and Network Security (IANS) Forum.

Fueled by interactions among IANS Faculty and end users, IANS provides actionable advice to information security, risk management, and compliance executives. IANS powers better, faster, technical and managerial decisions through experience-driven advice.

Parking at Princeton Junction is often a challenge for me. If I arrive too late I miss the opportunity to use one of the non-reserved spots. I made sure to get out early and catch the 6:39 express. Most of the people on the train were dressed in business suits. I have not worn a suit in a long time and I started to wonder if I could get used to this sort of morning commute. Something to consider.

Despite my best planning, I felt I was running late and started walking frantically to arrive at my destination — the Roosevelt Hotel near Madison and W45th St.. As I walked along 5th Avenue and I looked up and felt compelled to stop just for a moment.
