I will be at this years DefCon conference in Las Vegas, between August 3rd and 5th, 2007. DefCon is the world’s largest underground hacking convention! This will be the 15th installment of the conference.

There will be over 175! Speakers and tons of sessions over multiple tracks.

My friend Christian Wirth aka “RaD Man”, founder of ACiD Productions will be a speaker at the panel “Self-Publishing and the Computer Underground“, together with Myles Long Director of Depravity, cDc communications/CULT OF THE DEAD COW and Rob “Flack” O’Hara member cDc’s Ninja Strike Force.

Have you ever considered publishing your own book? Your own DVD? Self-publishing has been a part of the computer underground since its inception, from the Neon Knights to the Syndicate of London’s recent book “End of Dayz”. This panel will discuss types of self-publishing (both on- and off-line) and their relevance to the computer underground. They will also discuss their personal experiences in self-publishing. Ample time for questions will be available. Learn about the process from people who have gone through it.

Jason Scott from Textfiles.com and “BBS – The Documentary“, who is a DefCon veteran, will be speaking at DefCon again too. This years session is titled “THE EDGE OF FOREVER – MAKING COMPUTER HISTORY

Too often, “Computer History” gets shoved into a forgotten bin of irrelevancy, devoid of use for lessons and understanding. Even more often, people often fail to realize they’re making history themselves. Jason Scott will walk though the basics of computer history, what to save, how to ensure things last for future generations, or perhaps how to ensure it’s never found again.

I hope that I will be able to meet Jason in person. I read his blog titled “ASCII” and he seems to be a nice but also crazy guy (just like me hehe).

I got a free press pass for the conference, allthough the fee for a pass is cheap compared to other conferences, which I ususally attend. It’s only $100. The hotel and flight are more expensive.

The event happens at the Riviera Hotel and Casino. The rooms are booked out. I am staying at the nearby but cheap Circus Circus, Resort and Casino.

There will be a sale of a limited editon DefCon T-shirt. I am telling you this, because I created the design for it :). It was my first ANSI in over 10 months.

Do you like it?

See ya in Las Vegas! Cheers! Carsten aka Roy/SAC
