    busing everyone about an hour into the desert and having it all in a bunch of tents
    Considering how much I've pissed off some companies, I'd be very hesitant to be bussed out to an undisclosed location in the middle of the Nevada desert by them :)

    Comdex was always great for free parties. MS, Viewsonic, and a whole host of others I was too drunk to remember provided about 90% of my food and booze for a week. I had no reason to be at any of them. Press passes are worth thier weight in gold at trade shows.

    With comdex gone, guess I'll have to find another way to freeload......Blackhat will have to do..

    A friend who went to last years' party said that he thought it exemplified MS's whole approach to security: The location was obscure, but getting on the bus to get there posed little or no problem.

    I missed last years Microsoft bash, (thankfully) I understand the party planners were going for some Area 51 like party busing everyone about an hour into the desert and having it all in a bunch of tents.

    Now the year before, it was held at the Ghost Bar on the top floor of the Palms, open bar, wonderful eye candy, and probably one of the best views of Las Vegas, especially at night and with a full moon.

    It was the most fun I have had with anything related to Microsoft!
    I've been to some well done MS parties. Open Bars, lotsa free shwag. They definatly know how to spend money. Though they do need to work on thier door security, those guys will believe any cock and bull story you come up with about 'lost invites'

    There was much confusion on the part of the venue as to time constraints. Those that were working closely with me on this (thanks devient & Tierra) can attest to weird timing issues.

Your strapping down people to allow freeflow and thought without a pre-disposition to party it up and not talk about what you know, or only be able to say what you got to say in a limited 50min window during your talk.

    And don't forget it's for a great cause, the EFF
    Sadly, you will be cutting a great deal of Possible attendees out since that's the night of the ToxicBBQ..

    Good Luck though.
