    </Sarcasm> Corporate sponsership just what defcon needs. <Sarcasm> Although the fits some people would throw on these forums I believe would be pretty enormous.

    In case it is not obvious to readers, the "events" I was referring to in that quote were events *at* DC *not* DC as an event. I'll try to fix it with an edit.

    But you *aren't* a normal man, are you Siviak? I think the pool waters cause mutations. :)

As a matter of fact I have won black badges before there were black badges (thank you everyone again for all the help over the years). Con is what you make of it... every year it has changed and I think every year it has gotten better (with a few exceptions, heh) because I leanr better how to make the con experience that I am looking for that year. There are "verry technical people" that go every year and could count the number of talks they have been to on one hand... lighten up... we are ALL (Goons and Staph included) there to enjoy ourselves.
    That is exactly my point, you will get out of it what you want, if you try.

    Ok, you know what- DefCON 12 was my first CON. I want DC to be like I've always imagined it. So I entered a contest, and won a black badge my first year. I'm making my CON experience what I want it to be. I tried to make it as technical as I can (using areas that I specialize in)- I met some great people. I attended some mind-blowing talks (if you didn't attend the Black OPs of TCP/IP you missed out- and if you don't think that was an awesomely technical presentation you are on crack). So quit your bitching and create your own CON experience.

    Um, threads? The first one was in 1992, the forums didnt come along for quite a while after that

    ya, somehow I dont get the feeling you were there.

    Commercial? How so? Attendees put on sub events at the main event. How is that commercial? DT has repeatedly stated that he'll never take corp. sponsorship for Defcon. How is the community supporting itself commercial? I'm beginning to think you're nothing more than a troll.

    no, but I dont think you do either

    There is a great deal of wisdom in your statement. :-)

    I agree with coverge

    Anyone can complain, but it takes genuine intelligence and guts to create something new and support it.
