Sun, sea and o wasps!

My public office hours on Monday coincided with a private event at the Beach House. OWASP held lectures, panels and a lunch. They're not Vespa owners - the Open Web Application Security Project is an advocacy group for open-source web application security. These folks from around the world bring community and communal values to the web.

Thanks to the open layout of the Beach House, and my AIR public office hours, an OWASP board member and former chief of security for Mozilla came up and introduced himself during a break.  He was fascinating, talking about their global efforts, net neutrality and the need for better OWASP graphics. The web is also a public place in need of placemaking.

The best public spaces bring us together with individual and families we don't know we have.
