So due to scheduling conflicts (ie - making sales, gaining customers and completing projects) I am not attending RSA this year.
No I am not "boycotting" RSA due to it taking $10 million dollars from the NSA to mislead and potentially injure its customers of its products by allegedly creating a potential backdoor so the NSA could eavesdrop on communications.
Running a small business with two locations and 25 employees ( +Milton Security Group
) means I need to be everything to everyone, and to use my time wisely.
For everyone attending RSA, have a lot of fun, wear good shoes, don't wear our your voice talking. Try all the awesome beer in SF (Beer week was just like a week ago)
For everyone attending BSidesSF : I wish I could make it up just for this. I know that fellow BSidesLV members +Jack Daniel
, GK and +Alex Hutton
are working hard to make sure BSidesSF goes off without a hitch !
To avoid ConFlu : Make sure you have a small flask of vodka and hand sanitizer with you at all times. Every time you eat, drink a shot of vodka. Every time you touch anything, use the hand sanitizer.
Now back to 8 Ball Pool.
ps - we were going to give out Raspberry Pis and Lockpick cards to cool people in SF if I did attend, so if you want one of those, leave me a comment and I will send it to you !
