Those of you that were on the conference call last Sunday were the first to be made aware that I’ve been working incognito for the last two months scheming, planning, plotting with fellow members of HacDC to pull off a really cool event.
For those that were not made aware, ShmooCon is an annual computer security hacker conference in DC that covers many topics, including 0-day exploits, Hack the Genome! The Age of Bimolecular Cryptology, or The Gentlemen’s Agreement: Pwning Friends Legally for Fun, ????, and Profit, how the Ohio voting machines were able to be compromised (a ’08 favorite talk of mine), and – if you have an itchy trigger finger – Hack or Halo.
So how does HacDC play into this? Well, some short background:
HacDC didn’t exist when ShmooCon was around last year, it was only spoken about in hushed tones till after the conference. Now we’ve been around for almost a full year with lots of stories to speak of.
Now at this ShmooCon we’re very loud and very proud of how far we have come and we’d like to say thanks to everyone by hosting the official ShmooCon Friday night party.
The details are forth coming but the basics are:
Location: HacDC Sanctuary (4 meters from the Altar)
1525 Newton St NW, Washington DC 20010 USA
(near corner of 16th and Newton NW)
Time: 10pm till past 3ish.
How/Who: If you’re a member of a hackerspace or an attendee of ShmooCon, just show up for the festivities.
What to expect:
DJ Just Joshin
DJ Keith Myers
Plus a number of fun projects that hackers from other hackerspaces are bringing in to show off.
Party Mode On!
UPDATE: Bring your laser pointers! Shuuush.
