Lewis Black: The Rant Is Due 2013 Tour

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 16

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the long and arduous journey of the presidential election, Grammy Award-winning standup comedian, Lewis Black announces "The Rant Is Due," his 2013 standup tour. Tickets for "The Rant Is Due" go on sale Friday, November 16 at LiveNation.com.

Black is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs over 200 nights a year to sold out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and United States. Black is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently a sold out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in NYC.

His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience.  He is a passionate performer, more of a pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Black is the rare comic who can make an audience  laugh while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.

Black came into national prominence with his appearances on The Daily Show in 1996.  His appearances on The Daily Show led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won the award for "Best Male Standup" at the American Comedy Awards. Black has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning "The Carnegie Hall Performance." He won his second Grammy Award for the album "Stark Raving Black."  He has also published three bestselling books, Nothing's Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear.

Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.
