    Re: Donor found among DefCon signups

    Good idea, if you are a full match you get Defcon for Life for giving life at Defcon. Talk about another incentive to sign up!

    Full match, chosen to donate over any other candidate. Based on my own experience as a donor, they are probably nervous as hell, fearing that the day they show up to donate they will be told to go home. Things are "delicate" up to the last minute.

    i'd wait to see what actually happens first... but if the person truly becomes a donor i'd say that's Black Badge worthy, hehe. =) Free DEFCON for life if you donate bone marrow after being matched due to enrolling at DEFCON.

    I think that'd be great. Too bad i have no influence or authority over something like that. :-)

    i don't know how to make this happen, but I think that person deserves a free badge. I'd be willing to donate some funds to make that happen if DT or Defcon doesnt already have plans to do so.

    This is awesome.

    Two words: Fuck yeah! Just goes to show that a few minutes to sign up can make a huge difference in someone's life. Whoever it was who was found to be a match, and for everyone else who's registered: seriously kudos!

    Amazing. What a huge, huge win. This is really heartwarming.

    Hopefully it'll help drive even more signups this year. Should make sure it's mentioned in the opening ceremonies.
