InfoSec is a lot like Stand-up Comedy

That’s been the best decision I have made so far

So if you are already a researcher, don’t you think you should do it right?

I am really terrible at public speaking. How do I manage? And I am not some established author. Why would anyone care to read my work?

For you, it should come in the form of discussions at events, GitHub pull requests. Blog comments, or even something like size of an audience to hear you speak. It can come quite extensively in the form of rejected submissions to be a speaker at conferences.

Real researchers just do the work. They don’t showboat by speaking at conferences and writing blogs.
