Anybody could not hold my heart long enough to use of the tripod on live from the Atlantic security conference day to obviously bit of a mobile rig, you saw quick shot of the beautiful house. I asked I burn off in the raspberry mobile app for audio and which hopefully is working quite well here a couple things.

I want to talk about any saw in a title. I want to talk to the hallway car and this is really con is in conference not, as in confidence camp and this is really what a lot of these conferences are about so I'm the Atlantic security conference has multiple tracks jam-packed full of phenomenal speakers.

I'm Saul good chunk of another talk this morning, and I'm at Middleton software tester coming into the security World sharing his educational Journey yesterday. I saw fennel stalks from my Dave Lewis from Acoma. I saw and a manly phenomenal legal experts and legal mind in cybersecurity here in Canada.

Just great talk after great talk after. That's wonderful. And that's really sort of the draw for the conference. But even more important as you know is the hallway conversations that you have at these conferences and I know sometimes people feel a little awkward about approaching strangers or I talking to folks.

They don't know necessarily our kind of recognized maybe from Twitter. But this is a huge Advantage about being here on site at a conference like this. So at the Atlantic security conference is over seven hundred people here are split across two floors in and multiple rooms. We all keep coming back together for brake vacuum for lunches things like that.

There's a wonderful opportunity to talk simply Explorer see what's going on and get a different perspective a different point of view were all here for the same thing. We're all obviously very interested in cybersecurity were interested in technology. And if you were in a talk with somebody afterwards or waiting for the speaker to start you have even more in common, obviously something about that title something with the app start something with the speaker Drew you both in why not? Just turn it to hey, I'm Mark.

This is what you don't really excited about this talk or afterwards for the talk thing. Like hey, what's going on? Here you go here, you don't like it. Wasn't that an interesting point. I'm just so funny, here on Twitter wasn't an interesting point that the speaker made about how they found it challenging to find great educational material.

You know, what I found useful was blah blah blah blah blah a huge amount of the value of that is unfortunate. One of the things that doesn't necessarily translate online attempts like this live streaming. I follow the Twitter stream. So I'm #a TL s e c c o n a tour at Battle II which we discussed this morning has really difficult to say but these are great ways to follow along.

I'm sort of the vibe of the conference of what's going on from a fart when that's better than nothing. But really if you're here if you're not talking to people if you're not putting yourself out there, you're really doing yourself a disservice because the vast majority of Venusaur the serendipitous crazy meets of like how I talk to so-and-so And I heard are we going to really crazy idea and I followed up on and it seemed really interesting good example.

That was the speakers dinner last night. So every year of the team here posted speakers dinner, all the speakers are invited and I'm you can get a ticket as an attendee to come and mingle to chat and some of the discussions were absolutely phenomenal. I'm at a researcher from go secure Sahara II post it out.

Then of course, I can't say your name in English. I posted a research paper that she was the lead author on this morning on Twitter. I'll retweet that in a few minutes, but you have a fascinating conversation on how she has a criminology background. She's a threat researcher now and she was tracking down a Bitcoin payment networks never would have necessarily stumbled across that but because you know, everyone was having a good chat talked about her research and you walk me through what she's going on and you know a big table discussion ensued around the challenges of attracting payment of the legalities of it ran somewhere in general and just a phenomenal amount of energy and ideas.

That's really what this stuff is all about. This ties very deeply to what I was talking about yesterday what Ted was talking about in his keynote of being educators of sharing remember there's always somebody behind you on the ladder of learning is always people ahead of you. If you're not sharing I'm if you're not out there engaging you're missing a huge opportunity.

So make sure you put yourself out there. I'm getting back out there so that I can talk to some folks if you see me say hi. I never shy despite being sometimes feeling awkward about it. But if you don't put yourself out there, what are you going to gain? Right? You got nothing to lose go for it.

Will talk to you soon. Have a great day. It's Friday. I will talk to you guys on Monday. Enjoy the weekend if you're here. Say hi.
