I frequently have prior students, blog readers, forum followers and Twitter twerps contact me screaming, “Hey someone is using your curriculum” or “they are passing off ideas as their own.” via twitter, blogs or in their own classes.
First off, thank you all for your concerns and comments. Second, there was a time that I took this incredibly hard focusing on what work I put into the research and documentation to have someone pass it off as their concept. I now just do not focus on the lack of insight of these individuals but more on the great way to pass on information by duplication. And when concepts are duplicated, what a great testament to your own work! Worrying about who said what, came up with the term “awesome”, or formulated the algorithm to the MSL of MetroPCS. The fact remains, it has been solved, conceptualized and put out for feeding. Let’s focus on the feeding and not sweat the egos of some to constipate the knowledge of us all.
Check out our 101, 202 and new 303 courses not to mention our online courses at Mobile Forensics Inc. I hope to hear from you all soon or better yet see you at a conference or training class.
