Hey All

here's something that might be of interest to you all. DARPA's STO is
hosting an industry day for a new BAA that is coming out. This broad
agency announcement is for stuff related to insider threat research,
which while not my bag might be yours! Mudge has in the past talked
about getting DARPA and hacker spaces, small firms and other cool type
together.  If you can make it to either day, please check it out. Press
release below the fold. 
I've attended one DARPA event in the past and I have to say it was on of
the most enlightening times I've had.
If you have any question about this feel free to contact me, I don't
have all the answer but I've got some.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will host two
Proposers' Day Workshops in support of the pending DARPA-BAA-10-84,
Cyber-Insider (CINDER) program. These workshops will be held on both the
East and West coast.

Please note that the East Cost Proposer's Day Workshop, previously
scheduled for August 31 - has been changed to September 9, 2010.

The West Coast Proposer's Day Workshop: Sept 2, 2010 Hilton Union
Square, 333 O'Farrell Street, San Francisco 94102 from 8:00 AM to 5:00

The East Coast Proposer's Day Workshop: September 9, 2010 at System
