Security and Human Behavior 2009
June 11 - 12, 2009 at MIT.
Once again I was lucky enough to be invited to this year's
Workshop on Security and Human Behavior at MIT this week.
Organized by Alessandro Acquisti,
Ross Anderson, and
the workshop aims to bring together an aggressively diverse group
of researchers from perspectives in computing, psychology, economics,
sociology, and philosophy. (I blogged
about last year's workshop
This is a small and informal event, with no published proceedings or other tangible record. But Bruce Schneier,
Shostack and Ross
Anderson are liveblogging the sessions.
As with last year, I ended
up making quick-and-dirty sound recordings of the sessions,
which I'll put up here as I process them. (I apologize for
the uneven audio quality; the recording conditions were
hugely suboptimal. And I didn't know I'd was supposed to be doing this
until five minutes before the first session, using a recorder
and microphone I luckily happened to have in my backpack.)
