The New Guy

A new hire at Apple was announced today.

Given that Apple has over a hundred thousand employees, a new hire there usually doesn’t qualify as news. However, this one did. It wasn’t, of course, Apple who did the announcing, but the various media outlets who make a living from following Apple. Unlike most Apple “news,” which is typically a wild rumor in a very thin “it might be true!” wrapper, this news came straight from the horses mouth, i.e. from the new hire himself.

His name is Jonathan Zdziarski, and, although you can be forgiven for not recognizing (or being able to pronounce) his name, he is justifiably famous in the Apple universe, as he is perhaps the best and most well-known expert in iOS digital forensics and security.

You can be forgiven for not knowing what the heck that means, either. I would explain it to you if I could, but I’m in the same boat you are. Suffice it to say he is a really, really, really smart guy.

Which made discovering this on his blog today all the more interesting. And fascinating. And encouraging.

It is not a short read — give yourself 15-30 minutes. It is not a light read. But it might be the best thing I read all year, and it’s barely March. I wish I could have written it.

Enjoy, and then pass it along to your friends and acquaintances who think intelligence and faith are mutually exclusive. Unless, of course, you’re one of those people, in which case read it again.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

Matt 22:37
