  • How does it go?

    I'm new, and haven't exactly heard the best of things about Defcon. I'd just like to know if there's really all the drugs, strippers, etc. (is this something you would bring your mother to?).

    Is your mother a hacker?

      Sure, some of that stuff goes on, but it's easy to avoid. No one will push drugs on you, and most of the stripping happens at private parties.

      What most concerns you? You won't have to do anything you don't want to, and as long as you can accept that there are those who do want to partake in such things you will be fine.

      I'd bring my mom to defcon, but she's really cool.

          Like Abby Normal said, those things do go on, but its easy to avoid.

          If you are concerned about drunk and rowdy people however, that is something that is virtually unavoidable. If you are just going for the talks you shouldn't be in for that much of a shock beyond a possible drunken heckle or two.

            No need to tell us you are new here, we can figure it out. (Looks like you have not read the rules yet.)

            DefCon has some adult content that takes place at the hotel, but the official presentations are mostly timid.

            So. What have you heard about DefCon?

                  A tip for avoiding most of "that stuff": the freaks come out at night.

                  Actually, that tip works both ways for those of us that want to encounter interesting people.

                    Don't let them fool you.. there are no strippers, no drugs, no booze.. and most of all NO SEX at Defcon!
                    It is so clean even Siviak would bring his mother!

                      Sure you can bring your mum.... assuming she works in the sex industry and deals meth on the side.

                      Seriously.... look at the pics. Defcon is not PG-13. We hack, we learn, we catch up with old friends... but most importantly, we do what any self-respecting geek with a week's vacation in Las Vegas at company expense would do.... Hookers and blow.

                        If you're interested in the content of the talks or participating in any of the contests but wish to avoid the adult oriented all night parties that start Wednesday and usually wind up sometime Monday then stay somewhere other than the AP and don't walk to the back of the grounds after the sun goes down.

                        I wouldn't bring my mom to con because she's dead. If she weren't, I wouldn't unless we were staying somewhere besides the AP/V. The parties do go all night and there are usually DJs spinning by the pools from sundown to sunrise. It is not quiet. I'm older and I find the drunken antics of some folks a little bit hard to take. Siviak did bring his mom, who is awesome and non-judgemental but I was embarrassed by some of the things she was exposed to and I spent most of the con sick in my room.

                        If your mom would object to public drunkeness, public nudity and/or beligerant drunken oversized mobile cum dumpsters whose only reason for being on the premises is to add notches to their bedposts then don't bring your mom. If your mom is a good conversationalist with a sense of humor and a knack for sarcasm and social commentary, bring her - she'll get along great with Siv's mom.

                        DefCon is just like any gigantic party full of strangers, if you're uncomfortable, walk away. If someone holding a bottle with a skull shaped stopper asks you if you like spicy food, run... just run.

                        note: the term "oversized mobile cum dumpster" is not intended to to represent any person, living or dead, who may or may not fit the description. The euphamism is in the public domain, to my knowledge and not tested on animals...
                        That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

                          He's not joking... I met her at Defcon 12.

                            my mother has come with me the past 2 years and shes far from being a hacker.... we shall see about this year....
                            she only goes to the talks so i have few worries about her learning of the pool 2 girl side of defcon


                            if mother attendance continues, i see something like momcon forming....

                              We could kill two birds with one stone here. As the scene collectively gets older more and more of us are bringing our kids to defcon. We could start Defcon daycare. Attendees drop their kids off and they get watched by the moms of younger attendees. Everyone wins. Siviak's mom is exempt from this though, as she'll just teach the kids how to play blackjack and do jello shots. :)
