OT: Walk the Talk – #DefConWalkers

by kriggins on July 9, 2012

in Announcement

I don't talk about it here much, but I've been on a journey over the last couple years to a healthier me. I blather on about my exercise and nutrition stuff on my personal twitter account, @kriggins, and thus the title of this blog post. If you are interested in reading more about that, this blog post gives the detail.

One of the changes I made is I try to get in a walk every day that I don't workout. That's at least three walks per week since I Crossfit three times per week and sprint once per week.

So what does that have to do with DefCon?

I'm glad you asked. I, and a number of others, are gonna keep the habit alive by walking in Las Vegas while there for DefCon 20.

We are going to have daily walks in the morning.

Here's the details as of this moment.

Time: 7:00am Wednesday the 25th - Monday the 30th

Location: Depart from the Rio. More details later.

Length: 3 miles (may add a shorter route and a longer route if there is interest)

Estimated Time: 60 minutes (that's about a 3 mph pace, again may add shorter route if people want a slower pace)

I will have route maps and further information available in the near future.

If you want to be included in updates, let me know via the comments below or you can @ me at @kriggins or, if you prefer to not have to follow a private account for updates, @randommissives (also me.) You can also follow the #defconwalkers hashtag on Twitter.

On a cold cold, frigid, icy, low-temperature, freezing...okay...too much.

One day last winter, Rafal Los, @wh1t3rabbit, Kenneth Johnson, @patories, and I were going to have dinner together. As is often the case with Raf, that means we did a podcast first 🙂

We had a nice chat about software testing, QA, who should do it, and other ramblings. Go ahead and give it a listen.

As always, comments are welcome below.

Here's what went on around here for the last few days.

Tweets are in ascending date order except for answers to questions which are still in ascending date order, but immediately following the original question.

I have been involved with the Society of Information Risk Analysts from almost the very beginning. I think Jay, Chris, and Alex had the idea and I jumped on board a few days later. It is a fantastic organization that has a very active and lively mail list.

The home page for SIRA is here. "Membership" is free and mainly consists of signing up for the mail list and requesting an account on the website.

Anyhoo. We are having our very first conference. It will be the day before Secure360, i.e. May 7th, and it is going to be a day of awesomeness for those who live and breathe risk analysis and risk management or for those who want to know more.
