BSides Boston 2014: HallwayCon

As I noted in previous posts, LobbyCon is an important part of any security conference experience. At BSides Boston Saturday, attendees will enjoy the ritual with a special twist.

Organizers call it HallwayCon. A description from the BSides Boston website:

First come, first served! (Sign-up and put your name and topic on the board!) These lightning talks are 15-minute each and will go throughout the entire day.

A variation of this happened during one of the SOURCE Boston after-events last month. That time, folks were encouraged to speak on a topic at a table in one of the local pubs. I enjoyed it, though it was a bit hard to hear everyone from the other side of a packed table. The BSides Boston version will surely take it to the next level.
