So what happened to September? Not a single September post on the Stephen Cobb Blog? That's right, I was busy settling into my new job here in San Diego at ESET North America. I'm part of the research team and, as it says on my business cards, my job title is Security Evangelist. But I did blog in September, seven times on the ESET Threat Blog.
Working a blog with multiple contributors is one of the many things I'm loving about this new position. Another nice thing about the job is San Diego itself. I'm sure that San Diego has "issues" that I will encounter (and blog about, right here). No city is perfect, but sometimes a city can feel like a perfect match. For someone who loves to travel--like me--San Diego is both a great place to come home to, and a great place to travel from. I can look out the window and see cars, trains, boats, and planes. Okay, so sometimes these are noisy cars, trains, boats, and planes; but like all modes of transportation, they create this great sense of possibility, of going places.
And sunsets. San Diego has amazing sunsets. Friends and relatives are already getting tired of me emailing them my San diego sunset pictures, so I decided to illustrate this post with something else that is very San Diego: water bowls for your dog. Such bowls are a common site outside San Diego stores and restaurants (many of the latter welcome dogs in the outside eating areas, of which there are many). This particular eatery caught my eye because they had thoughtfully provided bowls in a range of sizes to suit different dogs.
So, in San Diego you can walk your dog to the local restaurant, enjoy great food in the open air, plus canine companionship and, let's face it, watch a great sunset nearly every day.
