    Short one for now:

    Everyone who completed the MysteryChallenge this year.


    I have *many* people to thank and just got home (drive from Vegas!) so I'm off to sleep...

      Same boat here. It will take me several days to build my thank you's sorry's and "you bunghole" comments. I don't think I have any fuck-you's.

        I'll shout out a thank you to DrFaustus for his brew wars competition, and the others that supported it and judged it as well.
        Even though there was some initial complications on the day itself and the turn-out/attendancer low. (As expected for a first year event that would not have been widely known by all and required pre-con prep to join it.)

        He followed through with it in good spirits (no pun intended!), and completed the brew wars with the enthusiasm and honesty you would expect from any official event.

        I didn't win! So, not a plug to market anything :D
        It simply was nice taping into another potential niche area at defcon.

        Forum Meetup:

        Damnit cotman, I wanted to find out who you were.
        I had to show up like 30 min late, door was locked and a sign said "queercon is located at another room"

        Damn you :D

          I'll just simply say thanks.
          This was my first con of any type, and I had a blast. It more than lived up to it's expectations.
          From everyone in the WiFi village, to all the different talks (which I must say, most of them went over my head), and to just hanging out in the contest area, meeting new people.

          I was really surprised, from the information on the website, I had imagined the goons to be, well, a bit more harsh than they were. But every one of them that I had talked to was incredibly nice and decent. I had lost my phone, and a few goons did what they could to help out.

          Thanks to the community also. Everyone was extremely nice, and very helpful :)
          I'll definitely be joining in on future cons. I plan to do a few of the contests next year, so it should be even more fun :)

            My list is coming, I don't want to forget anyone. God, I'm sitting at Usenix Security right now, and it is sooooo dull compared to Defcon, even though the techinical level of the talks is pretty similar.
            Somebody post photos soon, so I can show all these academics why they need to go to a hacker con.

            hugs to everyone. I miss you already.

            One Voter really can make a difference. Ask me how!

     those who helped me after my bout of food poisoning/allergic reaction on Saturday night.

              Wifi Village+++++

              (to round off the weekend, a minor asthma attack when i arrived at JFK late for transatlantic flight meaning a run from terminal 6 to 7 in WTF% humidity)

              great event tho :)

                ... to Deviant for taking care of Chameleon (the blond chick on Saturday you kept trying not to ignore). She's picked every lock in the house.

                ... to the Registration folks for keeping it moving. Some way it is easy to be efficient when you don't have to sign people in, but they still have to handle all of the n00b questions, and they did great.

                ... to Wendy for mentioning our little conversation in her Register article. Good stuff - glad to have you there!

                ... to Jennifer for leaving the Ivy League for the EFF! Yay!

                ... to Joe for designing the undeniably most n33t badge I ever did see. Damn it, makes me wish I did hardware, almost.

                ... to DT for a great Defcon - my FIRST - and his professional handling of CiscoGate, the Madigan Incident, and everything else.

                  Shout out to DC949 for running the aCTF. They had a tough time with everyone DoSing the system. And the Infected Mushroom is the BOMB!

                  Now we have to work for a year to get ready for next year. Should be fun. I learned alot about what I didn't know and I think that's what hacking is all about.

                  You guys rock.

                  Not the energy drink :)

                    CP99: I saw you for those 2 seconds, and then pulled some Cds for you, and then went looking for you at the aCTF section and then there wasn’t anyone around, went looking for you at the awards ceremony and still didn’t find you… next year I will just send them to you!


                    To the guy collecting badges in the box in the hallway after Defcon. Hate to say it, but you were the rudest person I encountered all con. If you want the community to help you in your quest, you might want to be a bit nicer next time.

                    Damn random stray bitches who took my camera.

                        Did you get tagged with the temporary spraypaint we used?

                          Jackalope, alls well that ends well.



                          to everyone who played aCTF, but especially to those who installed Happy Dance and where good sports about it.

                          to all the venders for helping supply prizes for aCTF.

                          And "Fuck you" to whoever DOSed the game after the Happy Dance login list was posted.

                              Thank you Nikita, Black Beetle and Hackajar!

                              I've been to eight DEFCONs, starting with DC5, and I think this was the veryest bestest DEFCON ever.
