  • n00b impressions and badge help request

    Hello everyone,


    First let me say that I just got back from attending my first Defcon, which was awesome. I'm normally a software guy, and never really soldered anything in my life, but I'm now inspired to start learning some of this stuff. Unfortunately, I arrived after all the regular badges were gone. I don't mind the paper badge, as at least it is something. However, I lost mine on day 3. I am inspired, however, by the honorable mention of the paper badge hacker, and the whole "work with the tools you have" mentality, so I've decided to try to make myself another paper badge, and laminate it myself. Can anyone point me to an online image of the front and back of the defcon 18 paper badge? (I know there are schematics and part definitions on the CD for the "human badge", and that theoretically I could make myself one of those, but I think my ability is more toward the former for now.

    Nice to meet you all,

          Way solid of you Versus. DEFCON people are awesome. It really is a community and we look out for each other.

            There is a LAX hackerspace. Many of them went to Def Con. IIRC, the bac badges came from thereabouts. Go meet them. :)

              That would be "Null Space Labs" http://032.la </shameless plug> ;)

              a member named arko made them.

                I don't have a scanner or I'd post images of the paper badge. On a related note, my tamper evidence team and I found the Fedex/Kinkos where they were printed. An employee saw mine and her eyes glazed over, thousand yard stare, as she recalled spending 4 hours cutting them out of the laminate sheets. The extent of my social engineering was asking to buy one (to write something funny on pre-laminate) and it was refused.
