    Of course, you'll have to have all the signs in English and en francais, or face a heavy fine.

    And therein lies the problem I'm solving. There are several spaces across the country and I met about two dozen people who were from Canada. It's a big country, we are fairly well represented, but we dont know each other. I want to solve that.

    DC 20 - Canadian Consulate?

    So I'm just tossing this idea out there. At DC19 I ran into a fairly large number of fellow Canadians that I had not met before either that they were new to Defcon, we'd not crossed paths before, or just geographic distance.

    This got me thinking we need to get to know one another a bit better which means some kind of Defcon gathering. Hotel rooms are not conducive to this, but there are a bunch of the meeting rooms in the con space that are up for grabs for just such events.

    Idea: Have a meet and greet type gathering one night for the Canadians attending Defcon. Obviously not going to exclude anyone else, but at the very least a place for the Canadian hackerspaces to connect and anyone else in the hacker community up above the 49th parallel.

    (Note: I am already working on how to get Tim Hortons to ship a metric ton of coffee for us, so dont bother suggesting it)

    Still just a very basic idea, I have not looked into logistics yet, but wanted thoughts from my fellow Canadians (and anyone else for that matter) if this was worth persuing for next year?
Working...
