    Black Hat is worthless to me. It's become too commercial. I will certainly be at the CON though. Where will you be? Hit me up on IM and I will pass along my cell phone #.

    Spec, the DEFCON show itself is full of numbnuts, however, it's the "un-official" CON events that provide wonderful amounts of info. This is why I still go.

    HT and I will be out there. If you want, you can grab a beer with us. PM me for specifics.

    Missing it for the first time in a while this year
    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    Figured I'd bump this thread...

    I'm flying out Tuesday night and I'm there til Sunday Afternoon.

    Anyone else going? PM me (or TH13... as we'll be meeting up there) and let us know.. I've been swapping cell numbers with people so that we can text message for meetups and parties.

    Hey guys, it's been a while. My first time going to DefCon, hope it's going to be good. I've been advised to stay away from text messaging at the event, don't know how true this is? See you guys there.
    Alright Brain, you don\'t like me, and I don\'t like you. But let\'s just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer.
