  • theNURSE...

    I have just seen that theNURSE (a DEFCON goon and speaker) had a stroke and heart attack yesterday and is in a coma in hospital.

    I wish him the best of luck and I hope to God that he pulls through!

    I also send my regards to his family.

    I must also mention that it was thanks to the immediate response from "Blak Dayz" that we did not lose a member of the DEFCON community.

    Re: theNURSE...

    If you have an information where we can send best wishes, letters of support, or just hugs please let us know here!

    Let's see a groundswell of support from the DEF CON community, the Nurse (Brad) is such an inspiration in his enthusiasm for everything he does.


    I am about to fly back from Africa and have been out of touch for the last week.

      From what I understand, he's at Jackson Memorial in Miami. It's a world-class emergency/trauma hospital. He's in good hands.

        Only best wishes and hopes for rapid recovery out to Nurse and his significant other. He's a highlight of my journey to Vegas each year and DT's sentiment of the inspiration he provides is point but almost inadequate. Anyone that has been around Nurse for 5 minutes will understand. He's pretty much the male version of mouse; a true evangelist for security, knowledge, and general life well-being.

        For those in concern, both blak dayz and noid are noted information sources, I've seen them posting what scarce updates they can get. Other than that, I'm just as shocked as anyone .. finding this out only minutes prior to typing this post.
        if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

              still in comatose, but condition is stable. Doc says next few days will be most crucial. Let's all pray for "The Nurse".

                    Re: theNURSE...

                    when calling Jackson Memorial i was told that they didn't have a "Brad Smith" per se, but rather someone listed as "Brad Smith <additional name>"

                    the age range seemed correct, but i don't want to post too much here if there are additional privacy matters involved.

                    when i spoke to the nurses on staff there, the details of this particular patient were serious enough that he was in a care unit that does not accept gifts or cards at the present time. they could not release specific patient details, but i was able to infer (and slightly SE) that this is indeed theNURSE.

                    everyone else's sentiments about him are correct. he's an absolutely stellar individual and a wonderful man. the scene is much richer for his being here and i wish him and his family the best. let's hope for good news soon.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                        Defcon Security will be putting together a donation shortly.

                        Also I wanted to call out the folks that run the Hacker Halted conference. They paid for Brad's wife to fly in and they are picking up as much of her tab as they can. Good, solid, people in my book.

                          I met their CEO in Dubai, good guy. Not sure if he had anything to do with the decision, but supports my initial feeling about him.

                            Just spoke with theNurse's wife, She is optimistic! He is resting more comfortably but has yet to awake. Thanks to Blak and RJacksix along with a few others whose names I didn't catch. We caught the symptoms early and he survived what most people do not. He is a strong man and continues the fight. He's been a mentor of mine for years and I can't wait him to show off that rfid buster.
