Back from Defcon

I spent this past weekend at Defcon 15. This is my 8th year going to Defcon and the conference keeps getting better. I got to meet up with some people I haven't seen in a few years so that was excellent. This year I mostly went to non-technical tracks, I went to what I would consider 'geek' tracks. My favorites were: I got some great info from the "Hardware Hacking for Software Geeks" talk. I'm planning on building a micro-controller driven camera that acquires location via GPS and submits photos via Bluetooth. This probably already exists, but it should be fun to build. Wikimapia is also a really cool site. Highlights of the weekend included the first Defcon wedding and an undercover reporter being outed.
