SOURCE Boston 2008 was a huge success. We could not have hoped for a better outcome from a first-year conference. The conference hit great niches, namely application security and the business of security, as evidenced by our attendees' responses.
Some important points:
- Dan Geer's talk made my trip. In what was probably the most intellectually stimulating hour I have had in a long time, Dan examined the current and future state of network security leveraging lessons from evolutionary biology and economics. It is a must read.
- The L0pht panel was hugely successful, and it was probably the first time I have seen a standing-room only crowd at the last talk of a conference. Here are some solid pictures of the event.
- All the attendees had a blast, as evidenced by multiple Flickr photo pools.
- Twitter was the communication mechanism for the conference. Jennifer Leggio herded the numerous security cats into using it, and it worked extremely well. She has been continuously updating a list of security twits, many of whom you may know, if you want to get into the game. Here is my feed.
