Atlantic Media's Defense One Hires Patrick Tucker as Technology Editor

Tucker joins rapidly growing media franchise to lead expanded coverage in defense technology

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Defense One Executive Editor Kevin Baron today announced the hiring of Patrick Tucker as Technology Editor. Launched in July 2013, Defense One is Atlantic Media's digital and events media brand serving the national security and defense leadership community.

Tucker comes to Defense One after a nine-year stint with the The Futurist, a bimonthly magazine published by the World Future Society. Tucker most recently served as deputy editor at the magazine, which explores the technological, scientific, environmental, social and policy trends shaping our collective future.

"Patrick brings a fresh, smart angle to covering technology for the defense world. I'm very excited to get him on board and help Defense One craft a unique position in the defense technology space," said Baron.

At The Futurist, Tucker wrote extensively on topics such as artificial intelligence, cybernetics, nanotechnology, emergency management and cutting-edge technology. His work has also been published in publications and sites such as Slate, MIT Technology Review, The Wilson Quarterly, BBC Magazine, and the Discovery Channel. Tucker has appeared as a guest on WTOP, BBC News, BBC World Service, Fox and Friends, and CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, and he has authored a book entitled "The Naked Future: What Happens in a World That Anticipates Your Every Move?," which will be released in the spring of 2014.

Tucker joins a rapidly growing Defense One team that has driven explosive audience growth. Following its July 2013 launch, DefenseOne.com eclipsed 500,000 unique monthly visitors in November and its Defense One Today newsletter now reaches over 65,000 subscribers. In December, Defense One launched its first mobile app to serve over 200,000 readers accessing its content via mobile devices.

"The hiring of Patrick signals the next wave of investment and growth for Defense One," said Tim Hartman, President of Government Executive Media Group which produces Defense One, "After shattering our six-month goals, this staff expansion will build out coverage in critical areas, such as technology, which are defining the future of defense."

The Defense One audience spans the national security community, including the Department of Defense and other national security agencies, the halls of Congress, and influential professionals, stakeholders and citizens with an interest in the national security issues.

Defense One's first six months also are marked by the highly successful Defense One Summit in Washington, D.C., where an exclusive audience of 400 national security and defense leaders convened on November 14th to look deep into the unprecedented transformation of defense strategy and operations. Keynote speakers included the U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Acting Secretary of the USAF Eric Fanning, and Under Secretary of Defense and Comptroller Bob Hale.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues.

We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
