  • Hacker Jeopardy -- 20th Edition!

    Hacker Jeopardy - DEFCON's oldest and most popular contest -- is back for its 20th running. Beer. Schwag. Adult behavior. Humiliation. Audience participation. You gotta be there!

    THE PROPER (AND ONLY) WAY TO SIGN UP A TEAM FOR HACKER JEOPARDY

    Okay, just to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity, here are the directions to sign up your team. Don't do something else (like post a reply to Winn's thread, since it might not get read in time -- we had this problem last year.)

    1. Open an e-mail to "hackerjeopardy@gmail.com"

    2. Include your TEAM NAME and the real names and handles of your three (3) team players. (Privacy policy: we protect your identity unless a Fed or someone with a whole bunch of cash wants it.)

    3. Explain why you are 31337 enough to play this year. Brag like you're trying to get lucky.

    4. Include at least one cellphone number so we can contact you to notify if you're playing or there's a problem with your entry.

    5. Send the e-mail as soon as possible, but absolutely no later than 2 hours before the scheduled start of the round to be played. In case of any dispute, you're wrong (unless you are an entity described in #2 above.)

    See you there! - G. Mark

          Followed the instructions, just got an auto response. I hope there wasnt a specific subject required to get past filtering.

          Also is there more info on trials besides one tweet and a forum with 0 threads / 0 posts?

            We do not require any people running contest, events, social gatherings or parties use the forums we create. The forums are there for any discussions about the contest, event or social gathering, and to allow grass-roots, peer-based sharing of ideas and support through Q&A. (We are happy to see forums used for planning, announcements, and answers, but I'm not upset if forums are not used; it is better for us to link to sources the organizers will use than to give nothing. It looks like their twitter feed is much more active. I'd ask them on twitter. Feel free to follow-up here with any useful information you want to share about it.

            Good luck!
