Here's the third part in this interview series. The best thing about HD Moore is that for all of his newfound fame, he is still a very down-to-earth kind of guy. He is very approachable and has a clear love for technology, and it obviously shows if you spend even 60 seconds with him.

I once had a conversation of Ed Skoudis regarding career choices and advice. He indicated that he often gets asked how others can have a career like his. Barring the inevitable warnings of "careful what you wish for," he graciously shared a story with me. In short, he and a number of other friends in the industry sat down for dinner to answer the same question that others now put to Ed. "Hey. I want to do what that guy does. How do we do it?" This special set of interviews will give you a brief glimpse into what will be explored at the summit itself as well as a look into the how these gentlemen "Did it." Each of these three superstars agreed to answer a few questions to help you with your career. Here we go!
