  • Why are you going to Defcon 14?

    Is Defcon 14 your first Defcon? Why are you going? What are you expecting?

    (Check all that apply.)

    This is one of those threads that should be safe to answer (this top post) until Defcon begins.
    It is also one of those threads that is easy to join, if you are new to the forums.

    [Added:]
    It seems one of the other mods has added two new categories:
    * I broke /dev/null and need vindication
    * TheCotMan needs sex and so do I

    They can be so funny sometimes. :-P~

      It's a chance to unwind after all the excitement at BlackHat.

      Besides it beats going to work.

        Maybe the old age and grey hair is catching up with me, but I have to agree with DaKahuna, last years Blackhat was one helluva E-Ticket ride between the parties and threats of lawsuits.

        I can't wait for this year!

                This will be my first time.
                The reason why I am going is because I only live in Utah and it's not that far of a drive. Going to bring lots of friends with me just to party. Trying to get some good contacts. Network with some people. Most importin, LEARN new things.

                expecting: nothing,
                Hoping: to learn new things. Meet new people and share knowledge.

                They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, he said. They're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and... and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth.

                  I believe that job is taken. But we'll keep your application on file and wish you the best of luck in your endevors. :)

                  I'm going because I'm a power hungry, facist, jerk. At least thats I've been told before. Pushing people around makes me feel like a big man.

                  I'm also going because its fun.

                  I return whatever i wish . Its called FREEDOWM OF RANDOMNESS IN A HECK . CLUSTERED DEFEATED CORn FORUM . Welcome to me

                        Bascule,

                        I'm looking forward to that conversation. Then we can talk about robots. :)

                            I don't get quite as many opportunities during the year to teabag items belonging to unsuspecting persons as Defcon affords me. This year I'm really looking forward to the challenges introduced in the area of sweat mark imprinting: with the move to a fully-indoors, air-conditioned venue, there'll be significant effort involved in maintaining sufficient perspiration levels to achieve a proper mark. However, I'm confident that this is not an insurmountable hurdle and fully expect to be able to maintain if not improve upon last year's accomplishments.

                              Well, assuming I get to go it will be both because I've never been and want to see it for myself, and I want to take over the world (Why does everyone always laugh when I say that?!).

                              I'm in college (yeah, yeah, I'm a youngin' compared to some of you) studying Computer Networking, so I think it would be nice to meet some like minded people, get advice, and just hang out. Also, I'd like to hear Bascule's talk on the Technological Singularity.
