As a bass player myself, I understand that the general rule is, if you show up to an open-mic blues jam, you’ll get to play bass all night, and the guitarists will be relieved that none of them have to ‘do bass duty’. I became fascinated with how this pattern seems to reverse in the infosec/hacker community and started to see parallels between security and this particular instrument. I plan to share my research, ideas and theories that I’ve collected on my journey to understand this strange anomaly and look forward to hearing more.
