a few defcon badges.

over at wired they have an excellent gallery from this year’s hacker convention: defcon.

“many of the attendees at DEF CON include computer security professionals, journalists, lawyers, federal government employees, crackers, and hackers with a general interest in computer code and computer architecture. the event consists of several tracks of speakers about computer- and hacking-related subjects, as well as social events and contests in everything from creating the longest wi-fi connection and cracking computer systems to who can most effectively cool a beer in the nevada heat. other contests include lockpicking, robotic-related contests, art, slogan, coffee wars, scavenger hunt and capture the flag. capture the flag is perhaps the best known of these contests. it is a hacking competition where teams of hackers attempt to attack and defend computers and networks.”

this falls just below comicon and e3 in my wishlist.
