Today you have two options over lunch:

1. Left-over spaghetti at your desk listening to the person in the cubicle
next to you prattle on and on about some inane topic....


2. Come to OWASP and hear Matt Tesauro give a kickin' presentation on OWASP
ROI and eat a really awesome cookie courtesy of National Instruments.  The
spaghetti will be there when you get back.
