Transcending Cyber Risk in the New Digital Age

"What potent blood hath modest May."

-  Ralph W. Emerson

Emerson's few words transcend again.  

I've always liked Emerson.  And, for me,  May is a good time to read his essays and poems for reflecting on the year past and imagining the months that lay ahead.  It helps me stay in tune with time's true seasonal nature and for a moment "transcend" society's pressures of the day.
