Would you please tell the readers of Computers weekly more about your job as a security and information protection consultant at IBM?
Security is only one of the directions on which the experts from IBM Global Services (IGS) focus their efforts. IGS is the consultancy division of IBM which deals with the services and the implementation of complete complex solutions, including software, hardware and services connected both with the implementation itself and the evaluation of the necessity of the specific solution, analysis of its impact on the business, changes in the organization processes, and others. As one of the IT architects in IGS, my activity is the sector of the security services and consultancy, infrastructure solutions and open source software. Part of my job is to change the mentality regarding the security among the business representatives in Bulgaria. Help them realize that the care for the security should be looked at as a constant process, that they should think the information security globally. It does not make sense if the companies buy a system for thousands of dollars for physical control over the access to the premises and, at the same time, not to possess a platform for access management through the network and the consumers’ roles.

After the hours of pain, I am alone. Hurting. Empty. There is no peace here, even at night… There is no peace anywhere. My views were formed as a person who had never experienced the reality of being responsible for more than my own life. My core problem anytime… You kept me company on the …

The Day 1

Hm… Welcome to my first daily weblog entry. I have never had a blog before… This is probably the fifth or sixth personal website that I have started but never a blog… Strange feelings… Seeing that the blog has become somewhat of a trendy thing to do on the internet, and considering I’ve wasted a …

One world, one time

What would happen if your watch no longer told the time in hours, minutes and seconds? Why do we have 24 hours in a day, 60 minutes in an hour, and 60 seconds in a minute? What would happen if our clocks showed 10 hours in a day, 100 minutes in an hour and 100 seconds in a minute? Our time is linear, so let feel it linear…

Without time zones – without geographical borders…

Internet time was created by Swatch. How long is a Swatch .beat? In short, Swatch has divided up the virtual and real day into 1000 “.beats”. One Swatch beat is the equivalent of 1 minute 26.4 seconds. Internet time is displayed by ‘@’ and three digits, which range from 000 to 999. That means that 12 noon in the old time system is the equivalent of @500 Swatch .beats. One hour of conventional time equals just over 40 Beats, so half an hour equals 20-21 Beats.
Okay, so how can a surfer in New York, or a passenger on a transatlantic flight know when it is @500 Swatch .beats in Central Europe for example? How can the New York surfer make a date for a chat with his cyber friend in Rome? Easy, Internet Time is the same all over the world. And it also works well for the conference planner who schedules a meeting for business travelers from around the globe who would know they are meeting at, say, @800 in Paris, regardless of time zone and Daylight Savings Time chaos.
