[Owasp-board] OWASP/WASC working together moving forward

Okay, so do we want to cobrand the conference?  I'm thinking that we should
just do another cobranded meetup like what we did at BlackHat.  Or perhaps
we use this to work a deal where we would help them redo their threat
taxonomy and cobrand that in return for cobranding the conference.  Or
cobrand the mailing list.  

I'm a bit worried that cobranding will stick forever, and we'll be some
weird Lockheed-Grumman-Martin thing.  Ultimately I think we want to have one
brand... OWASP.

             Our black hat party was a wild success, no question  
about it. The turn out and level of excitement among the crowd  
surpassed any expectations I had. A job well done by all involved and  
I appreciate you guys from OWASP willingness to work with us and make  
it a success. Judging from conversations that took place during, I  
also think its safe to say we should look for more occasions where  
OWASP and WASC can work together. The most obvious opportunity being  
the San Jose conference in November.  Perhaps you'd be open co- 
branding the event as we did with the party and allow WASC the  
opportunity throw our weight behind it.

I want to be careful here since we do not wish to step on anyone  
toes. We know you guys probably have a lot of time already invested  
in the project already and we're not looking to piggy back on your  
work for free. All us WASC guys listed are local to the Bay Area, we  
know the people/companies on the ground very well, and have deep  
contacts in the community. Our pull in the area should be  
considerable if we could advertise an event with a solid line up and  
had the appropriate market messaging and collateral. I've also shared  
several more of my ideas previously, but first things first.

If this is something you'd like to do or discuss further, please let  
us know.
