+2, Josh is right.
#1 is important for Chapters, this need to be done now, not just discussed,
agreed... and forgotten without being formalized with facts, models,
That said, #2 is in my opinion one of the main, if not THE challenge for
Most of the time, members or new members, including Corporate and
Academics, remain part of friendly relashionships between dev/tech fellows
that know each other for a long time. In short, OWASP relies only on the
Time has come now for the Foundation to demonstrate why OWASP is related to
the business, and NOT ONLY focused on a tech speech.
As I said many times to some of you I was fortunate to work with or meet
over time, #2 mentioned by Josh is THE real challenge of OWASP. Most
Corporate are still awaiting this from us, this is why OWASP - whatever you
guys my friends could think of it - still remains at the Tech level and do
NOT succeed yet to clearly explain #2 in the wild.
We are a great Community, recognized as such, but I'm from those who think
this is now time to 'market' all this huge value-added so that the Business
can understand why and how the Foundation might help and support business.
#2 is the question I have at every Chapter meeting... since 2003 when I
decided with great pleasure to volunteer with OWASP.
Chapters are the capilarity of the Community. It's up to us to decide if we
are just a community of tech/dev... for tech/dev. In my view, the real
challenge is elsewhere.
My 2 cents anyway.
