      Surprisingly (or maybe not surprisingly) broadcast news still uses tape in various forms. DigiBeta and MiniDV are still popular.

      Hard drive??? That's so early 2000s.... I've been using flash for the last 3-4 years.

        DT - has a decision been reached yet? Do the "press can only do good" people you're having the discussion with have any questions that us "press aren't attendees friends" crowd can answer?

          DT - it's been a week now, and with defcon coming up real soon I know a lot of us would like to know what to expect. In the Shoot Press thread there's a lot of talk about Rebecca Wexler trying to create a story, and I'd really like the Goons to be able to kick a misbehaving reporter out (again). Especially if she's caught secretly recording, baiting people, or anything else underhanded.

            All reporters try to create stories (well, not true, many are handed stories).

            I responded to the Shoot Press thread; https://forum.defcon.org/showpost.ph...5&postcount=30. I'd be happy to address any concerns anyone has with that stance.

            We prefer not to credential misbehaving reporters in the first place. Regardless of the rule change of last year, we certainly still will reserve the right (and call upon the security Goons to help if need be) to remove credentials from a reporter behaving inappropriately. If you have concerns about press behavior, please bring it to the attention of the press team. We decredentialed press last year, but try very hard to make this a rare event by being selective who we credential in the first place (eg: local news crews don't get into DEFCON).

            And if anyone runs across 'hatchet jobs' that have been done in the past, let us know. By and large we've been extremely pleased with the quality of press that has come out of DEFCON for the past few years; a large part of this is due to the willingness of the attendees, the staff, and the speakers to reach out and be friendly with them.

            Please don't confuse this friendly behavior to an attitude that 'the press can do no wrong'; there isn't a single person on the press team with this feeling, and I doubt DEFCON staff (or attendees, or speakers, or hell, even members of the press) holds this belief.

              OK, here is the gist of the updated policy:

              Press are to be treated as humans, no pictures/video in the hallway unless the people being photographed consent, no crowd shots in the speaking rooms except from behind, and I am working with the CTF folks to try and open up access to that room as much as possible.

              We will now work to spread awareness of it. Any comments or things we missed?
