    mrglass Maybe suggest or organize a meetup? Jump over to https://forum.defcon.org/node/227574 and propose something? Pick a day time and location like maybe a chillout location.

    Are there any plans for a meetup? It would be cool to meet other disabled hackers in the community. Maybe something Thursday or Friday, so we can try to resolve any issues people have early in the conference.

    It looks like it's not going to make the web site anytime soon , so I'll start with the tablet package next.

    Anyone have any other questions or needs? I'm still listening.

    Unfortunately the "Chapel" space is no longer available and has been converted to offices. :-(

    On a more fun note, the car hacking village had the scooter races last year. Fun contest that people on wheels can join in on, and they are very supportive of people hacking the scooters to get more speed. I know that the organizers were very keen on helping people who need these scooters year round with hacking & modifying their scooters.
    I heard last night that we may possibly have access to a space for your services. It is being negotiated with one of the sites, and I will keep you posted.

    Thanks for the info. So far all hotels have referred us to local houses of worship as they have none inside. They have provided me with a guide to them.

    Scooter races are a great idea! I'm trying to get a local scooter tech to come out and talk during the con and this would be a great place to do it. PLease have them reach out to me with more info so I can include it.

    Thanks again !

I run a chronic pain community of over 25,000 people, and would love to contribute any knowledge or ideas you might need to make defcon more accessible to those of us who can't get around so well, or need accommodations for stuff. I highly suggest a nice quiet room with low light for folks with autism attending. All the stuff going on can really overwhelm a persons senses.
    There are designated " Chill out " rooms that are low lit, low key, and are fairly large. Also I believe Pillow Fort con is back this year, I'll have to check.
