DerbyCon Moving to Live Streaming Model

This is a fascinating development. They’re going to stream all tracks live, to the entire Internet, completely free.
I love this for two main reasons:
It shows how much they care about the community above the profit
It will put massive pressure on other conferences to do the same
DerbyCon continues to demonstrate that it’s the premier infosec conference. Not because it has the most attendees, or is the most popular, but because it best embodies the positive values of the infosec community.
Now if we could just have the world’s top universities do this.
The concept of highly paid professors giving private lessons to the privileged, when they could easily stream lectures to the entire world virtually for free, is becoming increasingly repugnant.
DerbyCon lead the way.
