Please share and vote for your favorite through Friday, January 25, even if it’s not me.  :-)

From Alan Shimel’s blog:

A little later then we wanted, but the preliminary round of voting for the 2013 Social Security Blogger Awards is open as of today.  As I wrote in an earlier post we are doing something a little different this year.  In addition to finalists nominated by our judges, we are also letting bloggers and podcasters nominate themselves for the preliminary round.  The top vote getters in each category of the preliminary rounds will be added to the finalists.

Voting for the preliminary round will continue for the rest of this week.  Then voting in the finals will commence.  We hope this will allow a new generation and some "fresh faces" into the award process.

Of course the winners will be announced at the Security Bloggers Meetup at RSA Conference this year.

Thanks!

Peter Silva covers security for F5’s Technical Marketing Team. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, Peter decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, he soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T managing customers on the original ATT WorldNet network.

Now having his Telco background he moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. After losing a deal to Exodus Communications (now Savvis) for technical reasons, the customer still wanted Peter as their local SE contact so Exodus made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. As only the third person hired in the Midwest, he helped Exodus grow from an executive suite to two enormous datacenters in the Chicago land area working with such customers as Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone, uBid, Orbitz, Best Buy and others.

Bringing the slightly theatrical and fairly technical together, he covers training, writing, speaking, along with overall product evangelism for F5’s security line. He's also produced over 200 F5 videos and recorded over 50 audio whitepapers. Prior to joining F5, he was the Business Development Manager with Pacific Wireless Communications. He’s also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others. He earned his B.S. from Marquette University, and is a certified instructor in the Wisconsin System of Vocational, Technical & Adult Education.
