Brand new 'Speaker's Corner' post on defcon.org - 'Hackers and Healthcare: A Call to Arms' by Christian “quaddi” Dameff, MD and Jeff “r3plicant” Tully, MD. 

Quaddi and r3plicant are hackers who moonlight as physicians, and the piece makes the case that turning around the rash of healthcare industry data breaches and tech failures is going to require cooperation with the hacker community.

If you'd like some more of these hacker/doctor/futurists dropping science,  you're in luck.

The 2015 DEF CON CTF Qualifications are complete!

From the upstanding citizens of the Legitimate Business Syndicate:

"Thanks for being a part of our biggest DEF CON CTF qualifiers yet. We're still very excited at how well the 4407 players, 1472 teams, and over 4000 unique IP addresses performed in our game, and have some preliminary results and other information to share with you." 

The contest ended with a three-way tie between PPP, DEFKOR and 9447. As the LBS sorts through the data, they'll post everything at https://blog.legitbs.net .

For those of you who'd like to get a close-up view of the action, you can find a whole bunch of writeup goodness at 

https://github.com/ctfs/write-ups-2015/tree/master/defcon-qualifier-ctf-2015  

If you competed and have a write-up to contribute, that's a great place to put it.

Thanks to all the competitors and to the Legitimate Business Syndicate​ for making everything happen. Good luck to the groups moving on to the big showdown in Las Vegas, where it shall be on like the proverbial Donkey Kong.

The main CFP is closed, but that doesn't have to mean you can't speak at DEF CON 23.

Several of the Villages are still looking for speakers in their specific subject areas. If your idea is about Crypto/Privacy, IoT, SE or Packet Capture, quick action could still secure you a speaking opportunity before an audience that's passionate about the topic at hand.

Crypto and Privacy village - Deadline June 30 - https://cryptovillage.org/archives/dc23/cfp.pdf

Internet of Things village - Deadline May 26 - https://www.iotvillage.org/#cfp

DEF CON makes a lot of swag available for the black T-shirt crowd. Like, black T-shirts mostly.

But what about the fancy people? What about folks who love DEF CON but have the kind of life you have to dress up for, like international superspies? Or international super villains, even?

Introducing the DEF CON cufflink! Made of the finest metallic metals and bearing the grinning skull logo of your favorite security con, the DEF CON cufflink is the perfect accessory that says, “I’m formal, but I like to party, hacker style”. Available in a limited run from our eBay store, this cufflink will make everyone notice you at your next Macao charity gala.

Then they’re probably gonna ask you to fix their computer, but they
will notice.
