I created this video for an internal Veracode video contest. It's intended to poke fun at the abundance of "thought leaders" we have in our industry. I shared it on Twitter yesterday but thought I would post here on the blog as well. A handful of people have asked if it's meant to satirize any particular person -- sorry to disappoint, it's just a composite. Enjoy!

Chris Eng, vice president of research, is responsible for integrating security expertise into Veracode’s technology. In addition to helping define and prioritize the security feature set of the Veracode service, he consults frequently with customers to discuss and advance their application security initiatives. With over 15 years of experience in application security, Chris brings a wealth of practical expertise to Veracode.

I would also like to become a thought leader. Should I move to Atlanta?

This completely rocks - and is so true! Love Xtranormal - was waiting for someone to tailor it to InfoSec profession.

I'm not a Thought Leader, I'm the worlds No.1 Hacker.

I thought about writing a response, but that sound like a lot of work.
Thanks for the chuckle.
