[Owasp-leaders] Thanks from the Texas Linux Fest to OWASP

I spent yesterday at the Texas Linux Fest [1] and presented on a DevOps +
Security.  I was sporting my nice OWASP polo shirt [2] while presenting
about the problem in general and some software we're developing at
Rackspace (and going to open source) to address some of the issues I raised.

During the day, I spoke with a bunch of people and had several ask if I was
"with OWASP".  After I'd explain that I was, many went on to let me know
how much they use OWASP as an information source and to thank me for all
that OWASP does - including two specific mentions of WebGoat.

However, the truth is it isn't me that should be thanked but the OWASP
community that deserves the praise.  So, for all you on this list, I wanted
to pass on the thanks and appreciation I was given at the Texas Linux Fest
and to let you know your work does not go unnoticed.

I have to say its pretty cool to hang with a  different crowd and hear
their take on things.  I'd recommend it to anyone - especially if you've
got some OWASP gear on.  ; )

Cheers!
