This year at RSA Conference in San Francisco we introduced a new format for session presentations. Tucked away behind Crypto Commons was a fully equipped studio with a professional crew. We had a stage, great lighting and audio, and even a live audience. The sessions presented in this studio were 20 minute shortened versions of the full presentations. We picked a few dozen of the highest rated speakers and the videos were both streamed online the week of the conference and were also made available on YouTube after the event (full session video list here). The studio was my home throughout the week and I loved being able to get the highlights of the best presentations of the week.
One of the speakers we had was almost like a rock star in our studio. The audience on the day Mark Russinovich presented was mostly college students studying computer science. Many had just come from buying his book in our book store and waited around after the session to get autographs and take pictures with him. It was great to see the next generation of RSA Conference stars so excited about the event and the content presented.
