    Playing devil's advocate, having the calendar in GCal format might be nice for the Android users. You can sync google cals directly with the android calendar app.
    After some researching I solved the Android schedule mystery from last year. Khanfu makes a really sweet mobile friendly HTML based schedule that you can just download for offline viewing. I used it all con last year. Simple, yet elegant UI and very intuitive. He made one for HOPE 2010 and BSides Las Vegas is up now here: http://mobile.khanfu.com/iphone/11#_home.

    I'm sure that DC will go up soon, here's the main schedules page: http://mobile.khanfu.com/#_top

    @Nikita, thanks! I managed to drum up what looked like some, possibly abandoned Foursquare locations.

    Here: http://foursquare.com/venue/5198345 and here http://foursquare.com/venue/83167

    Not to many checkins, but then again the app was really new last year as just being unveiled at SxSW.

      Using the tab-delimited data XEON gleaned from the online schedule (thanks!), I've generated this public Google Calendar:

      http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/recursivesquirrel.com_nvlq4nc6mh98gcahn2tm4dgn9s%4 0group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics



      I gave it a quick once-over, so holler if you guys find anything that needs to be fixed. If you have a better idea on how to format this, just let me know.

      Also, I put this together with PHP, so let me know if you'd like the source.


      EDIT:

      Ohh... I just saw the link to Khan Fu's stuff... pretty freakin slick. Lots of good options this year, I guess. :)

        No problem, treef()rt. Made the compiling go quicker.

        Ahh, PERL and PHP...

        Anyway, if anyone wants the PERL script, you're better off banging your head on your keyboard. It will be far more readable and will likely work the same anyway.

          Speaking of the Defcon iPhone app... What's with the v3.1.3+ requirement? I'm at v3.1.2 and don't particularly feel like performing a useless upgrade to v3.1.3 (and certainly not to iOS 4).

            +1, just tried to get it for my iPod. I would really like to not have to install iTunes again to upgrade and install this.

              Do you jailbreak? Have you tried the Fake 3.1.3 app?
