Larry and I attended (virtual) DEF CON for the first time this year, along with our can opener, Graylog Founder & CTO, Lennart Koopmann. You can read our reports (and trust me, you should!) here:
DEF CON was a hacking conference (and we hacked the hotel kitchens late at night for mice–it was a smorgasbord), and this is probably why the hackers were a bit confused about what exactly is log management. Now, of course, we live and breathe log management in our home because the can opener (Lennart, in case you’re not keeping up) got mad in 2009 and developed the Open Source project that is now Graylog. Everyone, except cats, was happy. But when we discovered that even the hackers didn’t understand after we explained it with supporting evidence, we got mad. Instead of developing a new product, we did what cats do best when we need to make a point.
The unforgettable conference caterwaul.
Do you get it now?

He’s agreed to stay mostly awake during DEF CON 28 to write daily reports about the conference.
