He was a good speaker and provided a nice skeptical vision of the future of computer security.
One unstated message in his talk was that embedding networked computers in all consumer electronics and household devices is a fait accompli. It's happening and no one can do anything about it. I found this to be an odd point of view, since it seems clear that a large fraction of the buying public prefers "dumb" devices. This implies that the move toward networking is driven by marketing hype (and the need for manufacturers to push these products). If his solution into the security problem is government intervention, why not just ban networked electronics?
While some of the information was relevant, the speaker was very verbose and did not always make clear connections between the jargon and technical terms and how it could be applied to our experiences as undergraduates
Wasn't very helpful for students who do not attend U of R. It was very specific to those programs and didn't have any applicable information for people who aren't sure if they want to get involved with entrepreneurship
