    Re: LulzSec guy in the vendors area –- yeah, I saw some posts about that. He (Sabu) tried to make it sound like he was there at one of the booths; he did have some insider info at least because he did describe the layout in the room pretty accurately.

    Did anyone else see that girl in the bikini on Saturday? She was just lounging on one of the benches near the entrance to Penn & Teller, reading a book. No DC badge. I saw the goons talk to her briefly and allow her to lay down there. My first thought (besides, you know, BIKINI) was that it was some kind of prank, but to what end? Otherwise, seems like an odd thing for a random hotel guest to do, unless she was just really into being an exhibitionist.

    The guy that posts the lulzsec twitter was definitely at Con this year (Full Disclosure on definitely, I didn't read what I am about to say personally but was told by multiple reliable sources that they posted it)...
    He apparently posted to come buy a calendar from him in the Vendor Area, an apparent prank on Emmanuel Goldstein who was in there selling calendars. Decent prank on Emmanuel.

I had forgotten all about it and was sitting at barcon drinking and some guy walked over and started whining to us about how he tried to go to the address that was on the card and it wasn't even a real address. Well duh. Finally saw the card, it was a well made, either someone actually from either group made it, or someone clever not even involved made it as a giant troll. O u guise...
    I got one of those. It did look pretty well made, I'll post a pic online sometime.

    In the 'Defcon Comedy Jam' panel, one of the speakers got one, and read the number out loud. One audience member claimed he had an idea who was behind the cards, and may have known whose phone number was posted.

    it was possibly an attempt to 'prank' someone by distributing their phone number.

    Great question. Those were bullshit right?

    Biggest pranks/hacks/FAILS during the Con?

    Would love to hear stories about anything cool/crazy/scary or just plain stupid that happened. I was only at the Con for a couple days and I was so overwhelmed that you probably could have picked my pockets clean and I wouldn't have noticed. We've already heard about some annoying prank calls made to various rooms, but come on now -- surely some more creative chaos happened somewhere?
