While browsing DISA's STIG section today, I noticed an announcement for a new STIG for Google Chrome.  Note that the STIG is in draft.

You can get the STIG here.

Striking out on your own

I'm getting that itch to go back to working for myself exclusively.  Partly, I think it is because I'm passionate about the work I do on my own, and not so much the DoD contracting work.  Of course, the big fear is not making enough money.  And benefits.  And the marketing.

A while back, Hal Pomeranz put out a great series of articles about his experiences going it alone.  I'm linking them here as they have helped me, and others can get some benefit from them.

Enjoy.  And I hope they help you as much as they have helped me.
