First, I want to congratulate you on a great site! Looks terrific and its good to see some familiar faces (?) here. I’ve missed you all!
Second, I did launch a certificate website at www.white-hat-hacker.com. This is only for certifications. I am still working on a site with tutorials et al for our community.
Third, I don’t believe that my site will compete with this one. I believe we can complement each other and cooperate.
Fourth, I own the copyright to all my materials. Although WHT tried to get me to sign over the copyright, I refused. If you did not sign over the copyright to your material on WHT, you own yours as well.
Fifth, WHT does own a license to my material and to yours, but it is not exclusive so you can take it anywhere you please. You can republish it here or any site.
Sixth, readership at WHT is dropping sharply. That means less revenue. I would not be surprised to see them close up shop within the year. They were already cash strapped and this drop off in readership may push them over the edge. I tell you this not out of malice (well, maybe a little), but rather that you should make certain you have a copy of your material before it disappears. I am.
Seventh, I am still working on my new site. I had attempted to negotiate a contract with an existing site, but they would not give us control. As a result, I am starting my own site. I hope to launch it within a week or two.
Finally, I am hoping we can maintain this wonderful community of hackers and coders. There is no reason to choose one web site over another. We can cooperate and collaborate together.
