  • Registration Question

    My 6 year old son has been bugging me for 4 years to be allowed to go to Defcon. I thought about bringing him this year. Am I going to need to pay to get him in? I don't think I can afford it... and I couldn't find anything on the site about it.

      Heh. He was almost 3. And he had his own computer, and all he really knew was it was about computers, and that I was going, and he had to stay behind.
      Ah well. He'll have to miss this year. He can stay with my mom, she'll love it.
      He probably will, too.

        Good reasons to bring children to con:

        1. Teach him how to exploit *nix, windows, etc... no one expects a 6yr old to hax0r:D
        3. Use him to attract chicks...Chick says:"Awww look at the little hax0r" and bam you're in
        4. Excellent spokesperson for script kiddies
        5. They can crawl into small spaces: air ducts to locked server rooms, throught the ceiling, etc...
        6. Use them as a diversion tactic. ex. Hostess has a conversation with lost boy(a.k.a your son) while you retrieve password from bottom of KB

        Reasons to leave children home:
        1. BlackWave
        2. See #1



        :D

          Shit.. the kid probably already knows more than a lot of the SW that lurk around for the partying
          if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

            You would never expect a kid ot be hax0r. If I was just a few years younger no one would suspect me.:D

              Really encrypt, I could formulate a plan.....tell me how old are you? How old do you look? What is your eye color, hair color, and complexion?
              What state do you live in? Do you have a fast internet connection or a dial up?

                  ahhhh....wasn't he the guy that secretly went to Kroger Inc. with the "Kroger Plus Savings" card idea.

                  The I0A has an urgent need to know how many americans are purchasing spam, vaseline, charcoal lighter fluid, tampons, and syrup of ipecac all at the same time.

                        I have certainly patterned my life after you. Once I was lost and adrfit...now my hair is blue, my wang is found, and my shirt (as well as my wave ;) ) is black

                          Haha. =)
                          Well, now that he can read, he knows how to use a tomsrtbt or a gentoo livecd to get into a file system he doesn't have root on, and he knows where his kernel is and what it's for, more or less. I'm working on teaching him to compile one.
                          He runs his own debian box. It's my old duron 800. So yeah, he prolly does know more than most of the script kiddies out there. heh.
                          BUT, he doesn't get to go this year. I already have friends scraping up gas money to get me there, and a place for me to stay.
                          And.. using him to get chicks doesn't appeal to me. I'm female myself, and straight. =) .. However, guys have considered babysitting him for just that reason.
                          I sitll think it's kinda lame that it's $75 for a little kid. =(

                            He sure doesn't sound little, though if he is little enough perhaps you can hide him under your cloak just long enough to get passed the guards...

                              There have been a number of children over the last few years. While I'm sure our 7 year old is at a point where she would learn quite a bit, there is NO WAY IN HELL we would bring her. I think it's irresponsible to expose a child to that environment. Perhaps if I had a family member coming along that could take her FAR, FAAARRRRR away from the hotel at night, I **MIGHT** consider it, but even then, it would be a stretch. Defcon is more than the talks, and we all know that. It is NOT a family-friendly event.

                              There are plenty of local events where my daughter can learn from and socialise with local geeks without completely sacrificing her innocence. Granted, we have looser rules on language and behaviour than many parents, but I still don't think my daughter needs to be somewhere that it's possible to run into a couple copulating in the bushes, have a talk interrupted by a streaker, or have the majority of females prancing around half dressed (yeah, great role models there!).
