Social Engineering is back at Defcon! HOPE and other conferences have been doing this successfully with a lot of participation for years, and we felt that this was a contest that after so many years should come back to the conference. Thank god we have some help from some veterans to pull this one off (complete with a little red button that cuts audio, in case you get too lucky.) This is being run by DC718 and Telephreak.
