Blackhat 2008: Four Horsemen Of the Virtualization Apocalypse – Done!

Today was the deadline for submission for all selected Blackhat presentations. 

I’m giving a 75 minute talk titled "The Four Horsemen of the Virtualization Apocalypse" which is based upon my original blog posting here.

I dutifully uploaded my presentation to Ping and the gang at Blackhat HQ today (on time, that’s a first!) with a sigh of relief and accomplishment.  I’ve done hundreds of presentations over the years, but this one is special.

I have to say that I poured my heart and soul into this presentation.  I went all "Zen and the Art of Presentation" for most of it and I think that combined with the dozens of hours I put into the content, the diagrams and animations turned out purdy. πŸ˜‰

Once BH is done, I’ll be posting it online with my narrative as I have my other presentations.

This cathartic little post is just the final little exhale of this project prior to numerous advance rehearsals, the first of which I will be inflicting upon my unwitting guests (75+ of them thus far) at my July 5th Pig Roast & Mojito festival in honor of another notch in the annual belt I’ve managed to stay alive on this hunk o’ rock.

Speaking of which, if you’re in the MA area and want an amazing cuban or southern-style pulled pork feast with all the trimmings, drop me a line as everyone’s welcome…many of the BeanSec’rs are coming, you should too!

Happy 4th/5th!

    Congratulations on finishing up the talk. I hope to make it to BH/DC to hear it in person but if not then I'll watch it later.

    Vague reference to Gordon Ramsay? πŸ˜‰

    I love the "Four Horsemen" notion – reminds me of this picture: http://tinyurl.com/2czd68
