  • Official Dunktank Announcement

    To all,

    Defcon will once again be running the Defcon Dunktank as a fund raiser for the fine folks at the EFF (www.eff.org.) This email is a call for volunteers that are willing to sit in the dunktank for 30 minutes and let random attendees attempt to dunk them. The money is for a good cause, the water is nice and cool in the hot desert, and you'll be richer and sexier simply for volunteering your time!

    Please let me know if you would be willing to sit in the tank. I need to put together a schedule, so if you have a specific time slot you'd like, please let me know that as well. It would be most useful if you can provide multiple slots so I have some room to work.

    Please pass this email to everyone you can possibly think of. I'd like to get as many speakers, hackers, and others to sit in the tank at some point during Defcon. And the water is likely to be much cleaner than that in the hotel pool!

    Thank you in advance. I look forward to seeing you at Defcon!

    -Russ

    PS: We're also looking at the possibility of "Arresting your friends" and having them sit in the tank. It will take money to arrest someone.

    Any generic timeframes when the tank will likely be open, or is that all still TBD until the con?
    if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

      Now, that is a great idea!

      Also, on the main website (I just noticed this today.):

Please help this government watch dog that is protecting our privacy. One of the EFF's current endeavors is fighting the White House and NSA from tracking who you have conversation with. All proceeds benefit the EFF's fight to protect your digital civil liberties. All contributions are tax deductible and receipts will be available.

      If you would like to particpate on staff or as a dunkee, contact:
      q-master donotincludethistext ( the"at"symbol ) dontincludethistexteither sanborn (dot) org
      Doing the proper substitution by
      removing: donotincludethistext and dontincludethistexteither
      replacing: ( the"at"symbol ) with an actual "@"
      replacing (dot) with an actual "."

      It is probably safest to deal with sigup through russ (As he requested) and volunteer as staff to the second address to q-master. (Just a guess)

        I, for one, am all for the idea of being richer and sexier. Russ, I sent you an email...let me know if you did/didn't receive it.

          If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

                That seems a bit painful. Oh well, at least it wasn't dry ice.

                  I hope this isn't a stupid question but...

                  how exactly is this going to work inside the riviera?
                  Is there an outside location for it or something?
                  can I dunk kevin rose again?

                    Can we forget the water and add in only ice?

                            I also think it means that rather than dunking a person in water when you hit the target, you make them disappear into a cloud of smoke.

                              I know you guys are joking, but for anyone who doesn't understand, dry ice will burn. It's cold enough that touching it for any length of time can be very serious.
