The New March Madness

For many people March is all about brackets, upsets and staying up late watching college hoops.

Every February since forever, RSA Conference has taken place […]

The Ease of Insecurity

“By checking this box I agree to accept the terms and conditions that I have not read.” I’m not sure if I’m a product of my generation or just a product of bad habits that won’t break, but I cannot remember the last time a read a single word of the terms of use or […]

Hack you very much

No doubt you heard about the leak affecting Apple’s photo backup service iCloud, resulting in the release of nude photos of notable celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Lea Michele, and Kate Upton.

Killing K-Cups and Net Neutrality

Here at CHEN we are intimately familiar with the revolutionary, pod-based efficiency of the Keurig coffee machine. Whether it is a sultry summer day in Boston’s Downtown Crossing or a raw New England winter, those single servings fuel our mornings and jolt our drowsy hearts into action.

Post RSA Recap…and Recovery

My friend and colleague Kevin Kosh has just about fully recuperated from his non-stop RSA Conference schedule last week—late nights that often involved banter over a variety of beverages and very early mornings. I suppose attending RSA is sort of like running a marathon. You strategize and train for months. Finally, when the big day […]
