DefCon 15 is OVER! Damned good show! There were, of course, some issues, but we worked thru them. The closing ceremonies format was changed so we didn't get to present our awesome powerpoint slides with the stats & stuff - but we had to go ahead & get it posted for you guys. You can download it here.

Haven't had an update in a while - so it's probably time :)

This year - 10Mb of bandwidth. It's a done deal.

DCTV - this year we're doing a YouTube-like system so YOU can provide content to DCTV. The DCTV will be broadcast over the convention CATV system. The skyboxes, the hallways, all the con space where there's a TV, there's DCTV. We're working to try to get a TV or two setup in the hang-out area, too. We'll have information on how to provide your content to the system at the Information Booth on-site.

Wall of BLame - Our own Major Malfunction is cooking up some spiffy stuff with BlueTooth. Standby for more information! :)

We've reserved-out all our slots for the Table O' Doom. You're welcome to submit your name as a backup, in case someone does not make it, or we have add'l space open up. Thanks for the great response!

DefCon presents a really unique opportunity. You know how hostile the environment is. Have you ever wondered what that traffic looks like? All you need do is ask. For years we've provided people the ability to plug in a capture/sniffer box and capture public con traffic to take back to your Evil Laboratory(tm) for analysis after con (you know, once you've sobered up & stuff). If you want in on the action, email us so we can RSVP a spot for you on our Table-of-Doom in the NOC.

Why yes, we are in the midst of planning for DC15. Now that we've "done the dance" with the hotel (who are awesome folks, btw!) we know what we can and can't do and should have virtually no surprizes this year. We're planning higher bandwidth, better monitoring, and also some new interactive-type stuff (I hesitate speaking of it for fear of jinxing it!). We're actually spending our funds boosting up our own infrastructure (beyond the Arbua kit we have) so we have more ports, better fibre connectivity, better trunking.

Remember, if you're planning anything "special", have specific needs for your talk, for your demo, for your break-out session, let us know EARLY so we can plan for it.
