These people I've worked with have been kind enough to write about me.
"Nicely done! Cool to see this kind of monitoring on an app level. Places like akamai and their WAF services cost so much. We implement this kind of detection on the edge since we want to do internal daily scans." Penetration Tester (name withheld from wide publication due to the nature of infosec).
"Disa consulted me when I led SEO globally at Motorola. Disa was one of the first people I turned to for expertise. A true subject matter expert's expert, she possesses amazing depth on SEO. I just like to give credit where it's due. The depth of your insights always blew me away (I never met anyone whose depth of knowledge exceeded yours)."
"Disa's search marketing knowledge and experience are superior. She is innovative, creative and a fantastic communicator. Disa is a highly esteemed member of the search community, respected by peers and clients alike." Jim Stob, President of Position Technologies Inc.
"If you've read about search marketing, you've come across Disa Johnson's name. Former moderator of the famed I-Search mailing list, Disa jumped back into the world by launching SearchReturn. A big welcome back to you Disa. Now that you've resurrected the I-Search mailing list that was your claim to fame. People know you as the longtime moderator of that mailing list, and you're back, and out doing it again.
I just got my first issue (SearchReturn #005: Microsoft AOL) and lots of good stuff in it already. It's just kind of nice, we had things start off with mailing lists, that's how we all connected in the SEO world. I'm sure you remember at the first Search Engine Strategies show, all these people who read I-Search were walking around going: 'Are you so-and-so?' and 'Are you so-and-so?' We didn't really have search forums and stuff."
"Disa stands among the best known and universally respected personalities in the industry. She is certainly one of the most colorful and outspoken. One of the dozen or so pioneers, Disa started her career in Bend Oregon in the mid 1990's. In the early days, Disa shared her discoveries, knowledge and innovative techniques in hundreds of articles and at countless conferences, establishing herself as one of the primary teachers of second and third generations. Through her support and participation in many of the annual conferences and her collaborative way of thinking, she is considered a close friend by many people in the industry. Disa is one of the first people we contact for advice and opinion."
