    Re: DefCon 101

    I guess one can only be surprised and worried when the stotan wizard is put in charge of an event. I myself am personally looking forward to it. =)

    Yes, but I'm not ready to release those details yet.


    * Will people that attended previous DC101 learn something new this year that they have not seen before?
    I think repeat attendees take something new away every year. More so, it will happen this year as well...As for the why? See above.

    Depends on the way you look at it. Many will say that Defcon 101 is the start of Defcon for them so that makes it on Day 1.

    Others who have been working on setting up for a few days before many of us get there will say its on Day 2, 3, or more.

    Either way do not miss it!

    On the Thursday before. After you get your badge, but before any "talks"

    Having a good question to ask will usually help in getting a prize, as will participating in one of our "mini-games" during the event.

    Also, t-shirts are thrown out to the audience throughout the happenings.

    Since it is DefCon 20 besides throwing out T-shirts this year, I'll be giving away some Exclusive DefCon Survival Kits. I may post the contents of the Survival Kits before hand or I may have them be a surprise.

    A fun time will be had by all. This is one of the few "talks" that I always make a point of attending.

    I'll feed you some information about the Wireless Village and what is planned for this year as plans finalize.

    I wear a size medium or small.. Doesn't everyone?

    If it's half as enjoyable as the forum meet you put on last year, then I take that as a very nice compliment.
