DefCON 17 will run from July 30 - Aug 2nd this year at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas. Although rooms are being advertised at $89/night, at this time a call to hotel reservation line shows that the Riviera is nearly full-up and that there are very few rooms left at that price.


Proposals for DefCON meetup. The Toxic BBQ is Thursday night, and might be a good meetup place. We might also consider meeting up somewhere where all of us can hack/play/decompress/etc.


(Feel free to not list yourself if you don't want your name on a public page but then we can't find you can we?)
