I had hoped to go to the Black Hat/DEFCON security conferences in Las Vegas this week. For those of you not in the Security Biz, this is the premiere Internet Security conference anywhere. Black Hat is more corporate and buttoned down, while DEFCON is where everyone lets their hair down - the hacking "capture the flag" competition there is legendary. I know a guy who won, back in the '90s.
But alas, work schedule didn't fit, and so I'm not going. But Stainles of Whipped Cream Difficulties is. I hope he gives us some posts about what the view is on the conference floor there. Probably best not to post from the conference floor, though - never know who might be sniffing around, in an IP Packet sense.
