  • Mudge's First Industry Day

    Here’s something that might be of interest to you all. DARPA’s STO is hosting an industry day for a new BAA that is coming out. Mudge is the program manager! This broad agency announcement is for stuff related to insider threat research, which while not my bag might be yours! Mudge has in the past talked about getting DARPA and hacker spaces, small firms and other cool type together. If you can make it to either day, please check it out. Press release below the fold. I’ve attended one DARPA event in the past and I have to say it was on of the most enlightening times I’ve had. If you have any question about this feel free to contact me, I don’t have all the answer but I’ve got some.
