A friend of mine is giving a security address and has 5 minutes to talk about “Security and the Cloud.” I tried this once for a partner of mine’s customer dinner…and I was awful at it. In my defense, I had the same subject and only 3 minutes.
So I jokingly wrote a response to my friend about brevity and said “you should do a haiku.” Then I thought about it…and wrote one. It’s not good as I am not a Haiku poet. So here is my first attempt:
Mist rises to peaks
Strongest roots from Clouds brought home
Trust but verify
I also once halfheartedly tried to write a requirements document in haiku – but that’s a different story.
Now the challenge. If this works on this topic, I will open it to other topics and think of some prizes. I’ll even get a panel of esteemed judges at some point if it gets big enough and we can do the Poetry of Security at RSA Conference sometime (this is starting to feel like a Kickstarter project)!
Challenge: what is your “Security and the Cloud” haiku?
