So I was having lunch with one of the organizers of the Source Boston 2008 conference yesterday (Spicy Beef Bowl, mmmmm) and realized that this is going to be one really great conference. Not only are there big name speakers like Richard Clarke, Steven Levy and Dan Geer there are some well respected security industry luminaries as well like Carole Fennelly, Frank Rieger, James Atkinson and a host of others. But I think the big thing that will set this conference apart from the big ones like BlackHat or RSA, (besides that the fact that it is within driving distance for me) is the size. There won’t be tens of thousands of people in attendance meaning you will probably be able to get a lot of one on one time with some of the smartest security minds in the country. If your in the Boston area at all you should probably stop by for a day or two or even all three.
Oh, and the L0pht renion panel is scheduled for Friday, the day after the Pub Crawl, which ought to be interesting.
