My plane arrived in Omaha last night from Las Vegas, and I got home right around 11:00pm. DefCon was very interesting. It was my first year attending and all around, I thought it was a good convention. I should have tried harder in getting my laptop going with something useable, because by the second day, I was pining for a computer to do something. A lot of good security talks, but the rooms where they were being held were very full and very hot. On the second day, they got the video feed working in one of the rooms, so we could watch from the comfort of our hotel room, which was nice. Unfortunately, I missed the Freenet talk that I wanted to see, so I guess I'll have to wait for the video to come up on the website. I'm definately going next year, but I'll be bringing a laptop and a wireless ethernet card. I'm hoping I can find one of those DefCon satchels that they were selling. It'd make a perfect laptop bag, but they sold out of them the first day before I registered, so I never got a chance to buy one.
