    DefCon 101
    Speaker Roll Call

    HighWiz will be giving a DefCon Survival Talk and DT will be speaking as an official representative of DEF CON.


    HighWiz

    After being banished to earth by galactic overload Xenu, HighWiz went to work as a personal "fixer" for the pope. He next found employment as an activities director aboard cruises destined for the Gaza Strip. Currently, he serves as an oil exploration specialist / dolphin scrubber.

    HighWiz has been attending DefCon for many years, and maintains the Unofficial DefCon FAQ.

    In his spare time, HighWiz enjoys keeping an eye on the Russians with his gal-pal Sarah, and having tickle fights with other men in his office (which is totally NOT GAY).

    Some of HighWiz's other goals in life include:
    • Figuring out what the frak was up with starbuck on the last season of Battlestar Galactica
    • Adding another face to Mount Rushmore, in the likeness of the Mohammed
    • Locating the fountain of w00t

    HighWiz aspires to achieve world domination through hope, change and a complete lack of planning.

    Probably not. But he did mention two sub-Saharan pygmies, a vat of axle grease, and the airhorn from a GE locomotive.

    Or maybe I just heard it wrong.

    I am a third, and I will be speaking, however the third speaker I mentioned above is not me.

    Next week I'll be posting info on the third speaker from that grouping as well as the other people and maybe even a mini-game.
