@alexstamos is giving the keynote at USENIX Security 2019. He's starting out by being nervous and saying he's not going to say new stuff.

His title of "adjunct professor", where (as we know) "adjunct" is Latin for "not really a".

But why speak? Because we're not doing so hot.
This is very clear in the way that the public is treating us. Silicon Valley is a whole show devoted to making fun of us. The tone has changed over time; darker

That's something we need to take responsibility for. There are fundamental problems with how we teach and do security
Everything people do over the last 10 years has been revolutionized by technology but the way that we treat people has not kept up.

We're way too in love with complexity. That's how we choose what to do and what to concentrate on.

No me han matado físicamente, no. Es aún peor: me han robado el alma.

Tras haber respondido tantas preguntas, ahora me asalta la más importante: ¿por qué yo?

Me llamo…
… y esta es mi historia.

Hace unos días, Robin [Gandy] y yo estuvimos en Hollymeade.

A pesar de todo no me he encontrado mal y me alegró ver cómo ha crecido la vieja enredadera. Aquella casa, que compré con tanta alegría, me ha transportado, sin embargo, a los hogares que dejé olvidados en la memoria.
Nada me aturde más como viajar a mi más tierna infancia. La oscuridad en el recuerdo es suplida por el frío más gélido, y por la soledad de la casa de los Ward, que nos acogieron a John y a mí, mientras nuestros padres seguían en Madrás.

La madrugada del 9 de mayo de 1945 llegó a Bletchley Park la noticia de la rendición de Hitler.

Unos 10000 descifradores de códigos vibraron entonces de júbilo. Más de 6600 eran MUJERES.

En la Primera Guerra Mundial, mientras los compañeros malvivían, en el mejor de los casos, rodeados de cadáveres putrefactos y diezmados por las bombas y el gas mostaza, el soldado #Hitler, un artista fracasado que pintaba postales, fue destinado a un cómodo trabajo de correo.
El desenlace de la primera gran contienda en 1918 fue el caldo de cultivo perfecto para que aquel anodino personaje, introvertido y solitario, comenzara a batir sus alas hasta desencadenar el más vergonzante episodio de la historia de la Humanidad.
