Scott writes on a very regular basis and often publishes his thoughts on his blog 10GbE.net or Linkedin. Here are some selected writings from the recent past:

  • If The Glove Doesn’t Fit, The Role Of Lossless Capture In Cyber Security” was a quick thought leadership piece I crafted for Solarflare’s executive management. — May 2017
  • Cyber warfare: How to fix dumb?” another thought leader
    ship piece. — April 2017
  • Three technology challenges, trends and predictions for 2017” — January 2017
  • Networking: Performance vs. Function” — November 2016
  • For RSA in February 2015 Scott published an article in Cyber Defense Magazine titled: “Detecting Data Breaches in Real Time
  • In October 2014 Scott was approved as a LinkedIn author, so he’s begun to blog on this platform as well.
  • In September 2014 to help promote SolarFlare’s SolarSecure Filter Engine Scott wrote “Your Server as the Last Line of Cyber Defense” for Cyber Defense Magazine.
  • Back in August 2014, Scott wrote up an Instructable how he used his Raspberry Pi running Nginx & linked it to Cloudflare to get world-class hosting for his three websites, this one included, for nearly nothing.
  • For SuperComputing 2013 Scott authored “Crash & Boom: Inside the 10GbE Adapter Market” for HPC Wire.
  • In October 2013 Scott wrote about how Arista Networks switches support data capture similar to Solarflare’s SolarCapture but at 1/320,000 the data rate.
  • Early in September 2013, Scott authored a piece for 40GbE.net explaining the difference between ASICs, processors & FPGAs.
  • In August Scott drafted a piece for 40GbE.net that addressed GPS Jamming & Spoofing, that included a quote from the CTO of Spectracom (a GPS driven clock manufacturer).
  • Scott authored two blogs during the summer of 2012 to support a press release concerning Sniffer10G and Suricata. Here is the high-level Emulex one, and the more detailed one found on 10GbE.net.
  • In the spring of 2012, Scott edited both Taekwondo America student manuals. He included in them clips from the optional DVD, and other TKD America sources. Also, he worked with the TKD America staff to create a number of interactive quizzes to improve the student’s comprehension. All this effort produced two enhanced books for the Apple iPad platform, and these products can now be found on Apple iTunes: Taekwondo America Colored Belt Student Manual & Taekwondo America Black Belt Student Manual.
  • In his position at Myricom Scott has chosen to become a leader in the field of 10GbE. He regularly blogs, and sends out eZines, eMail blasts, postcards, etc… to his customer base of well over 1,200 contacts.
  • Scott was the one man effort behind 10GbE.net, a sort of bleeding edge Consumer Reports type site for people interested in learning about 10Gb Ethernet.
  • For the launch of Archer’s Mark in 2009 Scott authored an Archery Magazine article that appeared in December 2009 / January 2010 issue. He also regularly maintains the FFX corporate website as well as several others.
  • For his Masters in Computer, Science Scott wrote a paper entitled “Classical RISC vs. Second Generation RISC – A Comparison of the MIPS R3000 to the IBM RISC System 6000.” In this paper, Scott compared both the hardware structure, the evolutionary development of the compilers, and the resulting efficiency of their code. Scott authored a simple Fortran example, reviewed the resulting Assembler and using an instruction profiler evaluated optimizations. Scott received a “C” on the paper because the professor thought it was plagiarized. The professor’s logic was that there was no way Scott could have had access to all those tools and resources. What he didn’t know was that Scott was the manager of IT support at IBM Watson Research, and for the past seven years had come to know many of the key members of the project America team that developed the initial ROMP, RT/PC and later RS/6000 chip and compiler architectures. Scott also supported the Graphics Department that had several state-of-the-art SGI workstations with the latest MIPS processors and compilers.
