Well another DEFCON is done. I couldn’t make it this year due to work, finances, and life. I miss all my DC buddies, especially my great friend @SecEvangelism!
You can’t look back, only forward. My main reason for going to DEFCON, besides hanging with people I know online and rarely see in real life, is the lock picking village. I truly enjoy teaching there (in a totally unofficial capacity). Just hanging out in the air conditioning, picks in hand, fresh batches of new people all the time to talk to!
I did end up finding myself in the DEFCON20 Documentary for a few seconds. I really wish they would have put more of an emphasis into the LPV in the movie. It is a huge piece of DEFCON, where everybody who enters sees a little bit of applicable security (or lack their of) in their daily lifes.
Heck, I even had the documentary crew filming next to me when i was teaching some of the kids how to get out of handcuffs!
I hope to see all my security friends soon! Maybe out here in NYC or DC sometime!
