Someone slipped a sheet of paper into my mailbox. It looked like junk, and, in my haste, I almost threw it out.

The Federal Government Needs a Cybersecurity Marathon, Not a Sprint

Our agencies have been defending against tens of thousands of persistent attacks for more than a decade. We have seen intrusions at many federal agencies. Yet it took us this long to initiate a 30-Day Cybersecurity Sprint to do what everyone in the data and privacy business has been screaming for since 2005.

Great Conversations: Clive Owen

Owen was direct, perhaps a bit shy, and possessed of a dry, sardonic sense of humor. He continues to be one of the most interesting actors working today, never playing the same type of role twice.

'Top Gun' in 3D IMAX: A Live Blog

Mike Ryan | Posted 04.07.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

On Tuesday afternoon, I attended a screening of Top Gun presented in 3D and IMAX (well, the fake IMAX that's not quite as big as the real IMAX, but it costs the same amount). In my life, I would guess I've seen Top Gun around 15 times. Though, I can't remember the last time I really paid attention to Top Gun. Top Gun makes great background noise while one pays his bills, naps or surfs for Internet porn. (I am not admitting to any of those three things.) Anyway, to mark this occasion, watching Top Gun on the big screen, I kept a diary of my experience.

Mike Ryan

Over the next few days, we'll certainly learn more and more about why Mr. Scott made the decision that he made - reports are already surfacing that he had inoperable brain cancer. But, I always assumed that the man who made the first movie that my father and I both enjoyed together had more left. I just always assumed there would be another Tony Scott movie coming. And now, knowing that there won't be, makes me incredibly sad.
