"The Internet Wins: How Hacker Culture Drives Creative Destruction"

Internet-based technologies, and the startups that build them, have radically disrupted almost every aspect of our lives: how we work, play, buy, travel, socialize, etc. In this talk, we examine how the hacker culture of the Internet has also changed the way we innovate -- i.e. commercialized invention -- and created a new platform for economic growth through the globalization of tech culture, collaboration, and community.

Dug Song has a history of leading successful products and companies to solve pressing security problems. He spent 7 years as founding Chief Security Architect at Arbor Networks, protecting 80% of the world's Internet service providers, and growing to $120M+ annual revenue before its acquisition by Danaher.

Before Arbor, Dug built the first commercial network anomaly detection system (acquired by NFR / Check Point), and managed security in the world's largest production Kerberos environment (University of Michigan). He is a 1998 graduate of the University of Michigan, with a BS in Computer Science.

Dug's contributions to the security community include popular open source security, distributed filesystem (NFSv4), and operating system (OpenBSD) projects, and co-founding the USENIX Workshop On Offensive Technologies (WOOT).

The event is followed by a reception; all are welcome to attend.
