Infosec folks in New York, this one's for you - we're seeking speakers for Ignite! It's a similar format to our others: five minute lightning talks consisting of 20 slides that auto-advance after 15 seconds. The deadline to apply is September 30, and Ignite will happen on (boo!) Halloween at the Hilton Midtown. If your talk is chosen, you'll receive a 2-day Bronze pass to the Security Conference, so that's pretty sweet!

Does impostor syndrome keep you from submitting speaking proposals? Reading Lauren Bacon's thoughtful post might help.

Another version of the spoof of TED talks. It's pretty funny, and interesting how the way he speaks does sound authoritative, at least to me. Like the other video, the arc of the preso is instructive, even if there's not a whole lotta content.
