Chris Hoff, Cisco

Where to start with Hoff? Best
known for his evangelism and criticism on virtualization and cloud
security topics, Hoff is among the more entertaining and educationcal
speakers on the security circuit. And, more importantly as it pertains
to this list, he can fill up a notebook. Hoff has ideas and opinions to
spare, and unlike a lot of vendor security folks, he says exactly what
he thinks. He also isn’t much interested in letting people get away
with opinions that have no thought or reasoning behind them.

a few times in interviews he’s listened politely to a question I’ve
asked, and then said, “That’s not the right question to ask. Here’s
why.” Or, “Come on, that’s a lazy question. You can do better than
that.” Writers need to hear more of that.
