Where I am currently at in my journey

Monday, August 9, 2010 Posted by Corey Harrell
I have been following a few discussions in the Yahoo win4n6 group that relate to the research and testing I have been doing. This made me realize I did not explain where I am currently at in my journey. My journey began last winter when I first started to do research on this topic. My sole intention, then and now, is to be able to understand the cyber investigation process. As a way to give back to the community, I thought I was going to write an article or two about my experiences. However, I began questioning if two articles would be sufficient when I read Harlan Carvey's thread in the win4n6 group about sharing information with others in the community.

Last month is when I decided to share the information in blog format. I did not want to start this blog where I am currently at in my journey because it wouldn't include a lot of background information. I decided my initial posts will document how I reached the current point in my journey. This will cover a period from the end of last winter to the present time.

I wanted to present the exact approach I took instead of modifying my blog posts to reflect new information. I am writing these posts in advance to make it easier for me to write them because my life is pretty busy between work, school, three kids (one month old, 3 y/o and 13 y/o), wife... I think you can see the picture. I will be trying to post every four to seven days until I am caught up (it will be about seven to nine posts from my second post). Anyway, I will be placing updates at the top of a few future posts to cover any new information or changes that have occurred on the topic being discussed since I completed the research and/or testing. I will only be using the updates until my blog posts catch up to where I currently am in my journey.

If I had known I was going to be using the blog format then I would have started this blog when I started my research. As they say, hindsight is always 20/20.
