  • From DC-Stuff "Defcon 20 badge on display at the NSA Cryptologic Museum"

    There is a DC-Stuff Mailing list with an email message containing a link to an image : http://dc-stuff.org/ and http://dc-stuff.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dc-stuff

    On this DC-Stuff list this morning, one of the members posted a link to an image:

    I was passing through Maryland recently and stopped at the National
    Cryptologic Museum. Found this prominently displayed in a case close to
    the door:

    I'm not sure if they want to be mentioned by name, but would be happy to cite them if they desire it.
    (Enough information is provided for list members to search archives and find the source if they want.)

    [Edit: Update]
    Received a reply, and they do not care if they are cited or not.

    This was posted on the DC-Stuff list by Izaac. I am not including their email address, but if you want to find it to comment, you can join the DC-Stuff list and check the archives, and reply direct to him or reply to the list.

    To kind of amplify on this, this is (purported) to be the Speaker Badge that General Alexander received for his talk at Defcon. Certainly could be.... Or they could have given him another one 'for display'. Still, pretty cool, and I hope to go and see it the next time I'm out in DC.
    I check my sanity with a wristwatch. What do you check yours with, a dipstick?

      I wonder if they took all the chips off of it. Would love to try to get the badge to sync with mine. ;-)
