First, to introduce myself - I'm new to this list, as I just took over
OWASP Northern Virginia from Stan Wisseman, who has provided great
leadership for the past several years.  I recently  joined Cigital as
one of the lead consultants in our federal business (along with Sean
Barnum, whom many of you know).  I've been doing security for 20+
years, and have long regretted a mistake I made about 7 years ago,
when I declined to be on the board for the then-nascent OWASP
organization....  You guys have done great things, and I've admired
from afar.

Anyway, some thoughts on this thread.  I agree with James that a
Federal event would be a great thing.  I'm sure Cigital would be happy
to help organize, and perhaps even get some of our government
customers to talk.  Learning to speak the same language as our
government customers is critical for all of us, both to advance our
Cause, and to help us advance our Businesses.
