Who Is Up For A Bloggers Meet up At InfoSec Europe?
Every year after our RSA Security Bloggers Meet up I am asked why we don’t have bloggers meet ups at other large security conferences. (I think we had one once during Black Hat. I remember Rich Mogull, Amrit Williams and David Maynor and drinking at some Star Trek themed bar. But that is another story.)
Anyway, many people ask why don’t we have a bloggers meet up at either RSA Europe or InfoSec Europe. With so many of our finest bloggers living on that side of the pond, it really does make a lot of sense. The only thing holding us back is that I don’t think any of our organizing committee attends these shows on a regular basis, so logistics and such are difficult. But where there is a will, there is a way.
My friends at Firemon have volunteered to sponsor a Security Bloggers Meet up at InfoSec Europe. They are already having a cocktail party and there is a secluded private area they are going to allow us to use as a bloggers meet up as part of that party. Many thanks to Jody Brazil and the Firemon folks!
Brian Honan had said he will try to help, but we will need more than just Brian. So any of you bloggers out there who will be at Infosec, are you up for a party? Would you be willing to help organize a bit. It really won’t take much, but we need some feet and eyes on the ground.
Who knows, if it goes well, next year we can expand and make it more like the RSA bloggers meet up at RSA. But for now we have a sponsor and host willing to give us room and pay for drinks. That is a hell of a start in my book.
So if you are interested in please either twitter me, comment on here or contact me at email@example.com. I need to let the Firemon folks know what they got themselves into
