"I have always liked the concept of universities as they were in Ancient
Greece, where folks who had something cool to say would just come and say
it. It wasn't about recognition; the impetus was the thought that you were
resonating with ideas."  –Professor Knuth


When I think about OWASP, it is the social aspect that fascinates me the
most. I often think of our meritocracy as something very innovative. But
perhaps what we have rediscovered is the concept of a University as
imagined by the Ancient Greeks.
