  • Was: Hacker Jeopardy Vinyl Vanna Contest: DEADLINE AUGUST 1

    Hey!!

    WTF!?!?! I was Beer Betty last year and I was asked back for this year, having been told I'd been the best Beer Betty they'd had in FAR too long. Now you're tellling me I have to compete to get my "job" back???

    Whose ass do I have to beat? :)

    1. Name - Banasidhe
    2. Picture - http://www.23.org/bios/banshee.html
    3. Website - Banasidhe.com (under construction)
    4. Prior Defcon Experience - Causin' DC fun since 1996
    5. Top Reasons why you think you'd make a great Vinyl Vanna/Beer Betty!

    #5 - I'm hot 'n' sexy and look great in fetishwear/catholic schoolgirl outfits.

    #4 - I have over 14 years experience in alcohol service and event security and know the difference between Buzzed, drunk and "Call the EMT'S!"

    #3 - I was planning on bringing puke-pails this year, as I noticed they were sadly lacking last year.

    #2 - I know the game, the rules the set-up and the "job" duties already and have prior experience

    and the #1 reason I should be allowed to reprise the role of Beer Betty this year??

    #1 - I bring my own bottle-opener
    There's a better form of security: Reconnect with the rest of the world, don't shut it out; stop making enemies and start making friends. Perhaps it's asking a lot to expect America to act differently from all the other empires in history, but wasn't that the original idea?' -Brian Eno

    I was not at con last year, but I think HJ may have changed organizers. This may be the cause for a change in this procedure.

      wow. can someone direct me to a ballot where i cast my vote in support of a catholic schoolgirl outfit? yeah, that definitely garners my approval, banshee.
      "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

        Yes. Because it's more fun that way and you get a shot at the top job of Vinyl Vanna.

        (In all seriousness, if you want need more detail on why you were not contacted, pm me through the forums.)

            I've looked at Winn as the guy that is the MC, but not necessarily the guy that organizes the event. Event organization includes getting the time slots, contestants, "vanna", locations, getting the people to perform the various tasks, providing extra questions/answers through people they know in the community or on their own, and more.

            The person and people in this role has changed several times over the years, but Winn continues to donate his time to help each year through different organizers and this has included provision of some questions/answers as I understand it.

            From my view, organizer != MC. Clear as mud?

                Basically, what CotMan said is correct. HJ takes one person to tie everything together so that Winn can be Winn during the show.

                  Very true, I meant to imply "Winn and his crew" but it didn't come off that way.
                  Guess i knew the answer to my own question, I just was wondering if it was a completely different "ownership" (ie, new staff/cook/etc)

                  Reguardless, I'm looking forward to another year.

                    Great! Help spread the word--it looks like entries are a bit slow!
