    Re: Breakout sessions?

    Ok, I'm hauling all this friggin' hardware for a breakout session (in addition to the hardware for my contest)- so you had better come to the breakout session!

    If you see me at CON, and you would like to participate, let me know when you'd like to do it- I'm going to probably just start to gather people on Saturday, and do a breakout session where ever we can find room.

    Yes. People have sold stuff at Defcon. Search through the threads, and you'll find out how people have done this in the past.

    There might be an unused room. We are waiting to find out what is going on with it. If that is the case it will just be an open area, first come, first served type deal.. You could also set up maybe at the Top of the Riv, or if there is space in the contest area. You'll find a space.

    Not looking to sell, but rather a breakout session-

    Good luck with that - last year individuals were run off for selling their extra clan/group shirts or equipment they did not want to lug back home. :(

    Cash or in beer? Unless there is a schedule conflict = you are on!

    What are the thoughts on a breakout session (hardware based)-

    For example a small at CON bot build, or something like that? Positive response?

    Besides Skyboxes, are there areas available for breakout sessions like this? Thoughts?

    If people participated in *doing* this, I'd probably drop in as a spectator.
