Blue Hat summit seems to be a new type of events going on. It's a rare event when you start something from scratch and you get comments like:
"I didn't know if we were going to end up with this massively adversarial experience or if this was going to be something of a collaborative mode between all of us," said Dan Kaminsky, one of the outsiders who presented at the conference. Like others in the hacker group--many of whom are known as "security researchers" in their professions--he noted that the relationship ended up being the collaborative sort.
Hopefully we will have more of these... 🙂
