    "Currently, there are no age restrictions for Notacon attendance, although the hotel may have other restrictions in regards to whom can book a room. We acknowledge that some materials, language and themes present at Notacon may not be suitable for minors, especially in the evenings. However, we do encourage people under the age of 18 years of age to consider coming with an adult, parent or guardian. To that end we are offering an incentive in that we will make a "family pass" available to qualifying individuals and their adult guardians. We will not be doing age checks, but will question individuals if they look or seem too young. "


    I don't attend any Con's with "Family Passes".

    How about a pool raft in pool #2?

    ahh...another con for the East coasters...

    /me researches the website.

    It looks like something I could get work to spend money on.



    Observation: Strange how most of the "notacon" helper pics have DefCon badges on...

    I believe he said it was in Detroit.

    Fair enough. To a degree I'm not even 100% sure what it will be myself, but giving you that as an answer is ducking the question.

    My idea, stupid or not, is this: I am generally bored with the typical computer and network security conference. There are already a lot of them (Defcon included) that do the job better than I probably ever could. So my idea was to bring music, art and technology together to see where these disparate areas perhaps have some overlap. While there will be 3 different tracks of talks and presentations, my hope is that perhaps new insights can be made into how technology affects us.

    Yeah, it's rather high-level stuff. For me it's not only the presentations themselves (Can code be beautiful or have intrinsic artistic qualities to it? What are the mechanics and technology behind new experimental electronic music? Has someone out there made a sculpture out of 10,000 old 5 1/4" floppy drives?), but from the community created therein.

    The two subtle themese that will hopefully pervade the event are community through technology as well as the concept of "bridging the gap" between technology and creativity.

    Yes, some of the standards from other events will be there, but hopefully I can put a new twist on it and give it a fresh look. (instead of having tons of game shows, for example, we're going to have contents and projects, most with some sort of useful and/or meaningful prize).

    Thanks for your fair criticism of the site content. I guess sometimes I and the organizers are so focused on what we do not want it to become that we limit ourselves in telling people what it has the potential to be. Thank you.

    Oh, I hope this answered your question, too. If not, let me know.

    Seriously, though, it's shaping up to be a fun event. I realize geographically it's a little distance from California and Nevada, but I thought some folks might have some genuine interest. If not, that's cool. I'm just trying to get the word out.

    Besides, at least it's Cleveland in late April and not now considering all of the white shit that we call snow that plagues my lawn. Argh.
