Tracy will present at BSidesCharm, “The Battle for OSINT: Are you Team GUI or Team Command Line?” with friend of the show, Joe Gray.

An Update

Dear Friends,

Ed, Paul & Tracy have a heck of a time coordinating calendars to get a show recorded. It is an unfortunate consequence of their success.

And so we are in the current situation – the team is weeks behind in getting a new show on the books.

Several ideas were floated to address the gap: going twice or once a month; changing the session schedule; making the shows shorter.

We are looking at these and other ideas, like: a more of a host-lead show with segments; more contributors; narrowing focus.

You will see and hear some experimentation of these ideas.

Your input is welcome.

BTW, we are still looking for engineering & production help. Interested parties reached out to our Help Wanted post. We haven’t forgotten them or you. We are this far behind where we need to be.

Let us know your thoughts at [email protected].
