Defcon 16's badges

Last year had some strange badges at Defcon, but they were fun. This year, they're even more full of technology (mini sd card reader, infrared stuff, and what looks like a usb mount point) and much less fun.

Although it is foolish for me to think another conference badge could be as awesome as the Shmoocon 2007 badge, I think it's safe to conclude that Defcon's badges have jumped the shark, because this year's badges are kind of stupid.

Defcon 16, this weekend.

Another year, another Defcon.

I'm heading up a day early for my bachelor party (woo!) and then it'll be the Con all weekend. If you're going, email me and let me know where you are.

I'm eager to watch Kaminsky talk about how awesome he is for [insert reason]. He's deliciously full of himself (not that he doesn't release interesting things). Lots of other talks look interesting, so it should be a good weekend full of booze and geeking.
