I had a good number of requests for write-ups of the material I presented in the Streaming XML session, so will try to put something together over the next couple of days. The session went over by just a bit so if I missed addressing any questions, please feel free to email me with them.
Did you ever think you would have to worry about your data while visiting the grocery store? Less than 3 months ago, I was one of the victims of the Hannaford data breach where my credit card number was stolen and fraudulently used. This is kind of ironic. I talk about the digital identities and keeping your data safe. I never thought I would end up on the receiving end of this. Discover card has an excellent fraud department, imo, and immediately of detecting fraudulent use, contacted me. I was issued a new card and it was sent overnight. On Saturday, while in Chicago for php|tek, I received another message from Discover card about fraudulent use. It really sucks when this happens while traveling because the card gets shut-off. I was leaving on Sunday morning, so an overnight delivery wouldn't even reach me. Anyways, I got things settled and was able to check out of the hotel - even paying my bill .
