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!
