A SURE SIGN THAT THE HOLIDAYS ARE APPROACHING is the sudden quietness that falls over offices, phone lines, and e-mail on a day like today! A sense of expectation sets in as one begins thinking about tomorrow's Thanksgiving plans.
This Thanksgiving, I have much to be thankful for both professionally and personally. I am fortunate to be supported by an expert staff of professionals who work together to produce SDM in print and electronic formats; and our hard-working family of feature writers and columnists who always put their best effort into their research and writing.
SDM exists because of the loyalty of our readers -- professionals such as you. I am thankful that you are willing to share your ideas and business concerns with us, and that you consistenly place your trust in SDM as a source of credible information that helps you develop and grow your business.
My best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving, and for continued good fortune in the security market.
