    Skytalks were probably my favorite part of DC21. It had really great content and a chilled out atmosphere. Content was so good that I had deep internal struggle to catch a Skytalk vs some of the other speakers. Very glad this is coming back. Will volunteer for "Skygoon" anytime (I'm short and quiet, but.....).

            In about 1 to 2 weeks, I plan to roll out forums for all of the above announced contests/events, as returning to DEF CON 22.

            Remember, just because you have a forum, doesn't mean you have a green-light from Pyr0. As soon as he has info and deadlines on how to apply, I'll send an email to each of your forum-registered accounts to remind you about this and where to go and any info related to this process.

            This option is only open to returning contests. New contests will have to wait until the process for application through Pyr0's department (contests and events) is announced.

            Forums follow his decisions, so if he yanks a contest or event, I close the forum for it. Get him to agree to allocate resources for a contest or event and I'll make a forum for it.

            Thanks!

                I neglected to mention in my original reply... The DEFCON Shoot will return again, for sure. Had a fellow write to ask me about when the forum will open up for planning, etc.

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."

                  They were supposed to go up 2 weeks ago, but I have it on great authority the Admin responsible for that (me) was busy over the last 2 weeks, and the few time he had time to do it, instead wimped out and slept, that lazy bastard. ;-)

                  This weekend is my next planned time to roll them out. Sorry about the delay.

                      Too much work this weekend. Now, planning to get this done tonight.

                        DEFCONBOTS will be returning in 2014 after a 5-year hiatus.

                        The competition will be a real version of tower-defense. Competitors will build autonomous robots to shoot lasers at moving targets on a track.

                        More info: www.defconbots.org or https://github.com/Defconbots

                        The competition was previously run by Kallahar, from 2002-2008, and with his blessing it's being revived.

                          10 forums added. I've run out of time to get through the rest tonight.
                          I'll work on the remaining 5 listed here tomorrow.
                          Sorry about the delays. This is tedious, time-consuming work involving a spreadsheet, and collection of data to be added to forums and then passed as announcements elsewhere.

                            OpenCTF is planning a comeback this year.

                              OpenCTF has a history of drama in the space of "changing ownership"

                              There were two competing OpenCTF and then a risk for a third, each run by different people. The end result was most of them never even happened. I don't know the present state of "OpenCTF" and "who 'owns' the title for running the contest" so if a forum is created for this, it is with the understanding that the name may have to be changed, depending on the decisions made by Pyr0 and his department, and if you do not submit your information to Pyr0 and his team and get them to approve it, I'll close the forum for it.

                              The forums for contests, events and social gatherings follow the decisions of Pyr0' Contests and Events department, or when under DEF CON Entertainment, GreatScott and sometimes Nikita or Jeff for things that don't fit in either of these departments.

                              The creation of forums before official opening of RFI is a convenience for those returning contests, events or social gatherings, that are likely to be approved again if their information is submitted to Pyr0 and his team.

                              Hope this helps!

                              I still plan to add more forums later tonight.

                                The last updates on the forums I see about this contest were made by forum user zephyr. I've sent an email message to the email address they have associated with their forum account to confirm this. Sorry to hold creation of this forum up, but I want to make sure you are associated with this contest....

                                You see, social engineering is a risk at a hacker convention. :-)

                                Thanks!
