I Need an Exit
Unfortunately, no one can be told that we take security seriously.
You have to see it for yourself.
You take the blue pill – the story ends, you change your password,
And have credit monitoring for the rest of your life.
You take the red pill – and have your eyes opened,
Mostly because you’ll be looking for that Yubikey you always misplace,
And I show you how deep the appsec goes.
Remember…all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.
The Matrix was released March 31, 1999.
It’s a story about humans and machines, which makes it easy to see the metaphor for appsec. But it’s also about identity and self-determination – something that progresses to even to the machines in Resurrections.
And, of course, there’s style. Style in clothing, in hair, and in self-expression. This is the more important metaphor for appsec – collaboration and community building that welcomes self-expression, including gender, and embraces the diversity of groups.
This wraps up another year of the podcast. Thank you listeners!
