  • Defcon Crafters

    Would there be any interest in a hacker craft contest? I know we have a lot of crafters of different types. I though it might be fun to have a defon themed craft contest.

    Any interest? We'd need some judges too, as well as suggestions for prizes.

    A Defcon knitting contest. Who can knit a 'sploit in under an hour. I'd pay to see that

        There could be several categories of crafts, like "drink" (includes beer), food, dessert, textiles, clothing, art from tech (clock, mobile, statues) , or others.

        There has been discussion in the past for having a home-brew (beer) contest, and a contest of TBBQ eats. If these contests don't go anywhere, perhaps categories in a crafts contest might work. If a category grows "large" it can be spun off to a separate contest.

        Combining several "craft contests" into one, might allow several people to work together, and if a table needs to be staffed, people can take turns. (Cooperative craft contests might allow many categories, but shared work.)

          Maybe just create any piece of artwork that is "hacker/computer" themed.
          Like the goatse sculpture made of toilet paper made at DC12.

          It would be interesting to see what people came up with.

            If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

                Funny, I was designing one. But mine had a fun fur border at the top. I was thinking black back, white smiley, purple fur trim around the opening. Or perhaps something with stripes.

                I need to chart out some stuff. For you knitters out there http://www.thedietdiary.com/knitting...tersGraph.html\

                    What about a contest for outfits and getups for the Black and White Balls?
