Ah, pure journalistic gold'. Since then, about every year, some not-so-witty journalist comes along and thinks they're the first to ever come up with this. Folks, you need to move on.
        Yeah it is old... but be advised that the actual writers of article have little control over the headline or title. Such was the case of my article for tomshardware as my original title was "Hackers in Vegas".

        Workflow for most media websites

        Writer > Editor > Webmaster

        The editor's job is to change grammar and spelling mistakes, without changing meaning. The editor also has power over your title and summary. The editor is supposed to send the edited article back to the writer for a final check, but if the schedule is tight, the article is sent straight to the webmaster for posting.

          Wow, that's two conferences in a row they've done that to you. You may want to consider protecting your journalistic credibility by writing for an outlet that's less prone to assuming complete control over a writer's output.

                Screw the Media, G4TechTV just hyped their segments, saying they were the ONLY media allowed at DEFCON. As for other media, KTLA gets a big finger too for the segment on the Cannonball that played coast-to-coast. All references are below

                  EHH??? The media room was pretty full with reporters. Perhaps they meant the only television media? Although, I think FOX was there too.

                  KTLA were bastards about the Cannonball run.

                    Defcon Press page online

                    Hello all...

                    The list of links that started this thread has been growing (thanks for suggestions that were added) and have turned into a web page with all media coverage that we've found since DC1. If the remote link is no longer valid, try reading the 'local copy'. If you know of any stories that were ever written about DC that didn't make it, please email me and I'll update the page (d a @ d e f c o n . o r g)

                      Thanks, I've been wondering what happened with the news clips for a while.

                        I have the eps of the screensavers that had defcon in them, I'll have to cut out the video clips and send it over.

                          did you get to see the wonder known as HighWizard?

                          I must say, I still prefer the Defcon XI Video of me, to the shot of me on the ScreenSavers. ;)
