Here’s a great talk from last year’s Defcon fromĀ  Pieter “Mudge” Zatgo, a prominent figure in the hacker/researcher field.

Stories include how government classification created WikiLeaks, the origin of Anonymous’s war against the government, and how insecurity can actually lead to more innovation. Mudge concludes with a plea to members of both the government and the hacker community to work in educating each other. If you are dissatisfied with how the government is handling cyberspace, the best course is to work your way in and help define the correct way.
