Well, well, well... It's that time of the year again:  RSA Conference, the infosec class reunion!

As with my ongoing #TSASongs lampooning of the TSA, I like to drip, drip, drip or death-by-comedy my fellow tweeple with some infosec snark, for the weeks before the RSA Conference, when the vendor-PR spin machines start roaring past oughtta-be-illegal decibels.  I use the main conference hashtag #RSAC to sneak in a few sarcastic, overwrought fake vendor pitches, replete with the latest and greatest buzzwords used (and abused) by infosec vendors, analysts and press. 

Self-employed consultants like myself can do no wrong, of course, so I don't include that essential category in this ribbing ;-)

This is in many ways poking fun at what's going on in the infosec industry on any given day, not just at RSA Conference.  When the tough economy meets daily train wreck headlines of massive breaches... the vendor who shouts the loudest and scariest often gets the most leads:  http://t.co/SZDxchFO

Monty Python really gets it!

Note I didn't say the best quality leads, just the most leads...

Below please find a few of the better #RSAC tweets I dropped into the conference buzz machine.
