Thanks for the kind blogging, Keith! I thoroughly enjoyed the Gartner conference and met a lot of interesting folks there. Rob Sawyer and Arlan Andrews also spoke much wisdom.

"We spend so much time responding to -- or reacting to -- daily security threats and challenges that it's all too easy to overlook (or just plain avoid) taking a long-range look at the security future."

This is due to the animal brain pervasive in the species. Just as changing one's dietary regimen can normalize the metabolism, and hence the body, disengaging from culture's demand is similarly unfettering. Of course, emotional attachment prevents this. Sorta chicken an egg scenario, alas.
