Stories about governments getting technology wrong are a dime a dozen - both because tech moves so fast and because bad news gets more clicks. All the more reason to call it out when someone in the public sector is doing and saying the right thing.

So kudos to FTC Commisioner Terrell McSweeny for advocating for the customer's right to examine the source code of products we buy and against the weakening of crypto.

Bonus kudos for attending DEF CON.

As astute readers of this social media property will recall, the DEF CON 24 CTF qualifications now have a date: May 21-23, 2016. Aspiring flag-nabbers and seekers after cyber glory are advised to peruse https://legitbs.net/ for up-to date information about how to prequalify. While there, future combatants may also dig through voluminous data dumps from previous contests. The season is upon us. Begin your preparations for war.

For ‪#‎defconflashbackfriday‬ here's Justin Engler talking about consumer-level secure messaging at DEF CON 23. The debate about mobile device encryption is heating up with two big US states introducing bills to mandate vendor-installed backdoors in the past week.

Turning the classic toy Etch-A-Sketch into a CNC drawing tablet intrigues a large number of hackers. This version by [GeekMom] certainly takes the award for precision and utility. Once you build something like this, you can hardly stop writing firmware…

DEF CON 24 Homework Begins!

As you know, DEF CON 24's theme is "Rise of the Machines". To help you get up to speed on some of the ideas that inspired the theme, and get you thinking about the looming conflict between human and machine intelligences, we're going to post some books, movies, and other media you might want to check out in advance of the con.

This is the first book post - there will be more. If you have others you think would be worth looking over before the con, share in the comments!

The Age of Spiritual Machines - Ray Kurzweil
Machines of Loving Grace - John Markoff
Galatea 2.2 - Richard Powers
The Kaleidoscope - Adrian Mendoza
Superintelligence - Nick Bostrom

Happy 2016, everyone! 

We're hard at work planning DEF CON 24, and we're excited to have a beta version of the Floorplan for your planning and perusal.

We're making a bunch of changes to make things smoother and more comfortable, including even more space for villages and a significantly larger track for DC101.

Head over to the DEF CON Forum and check it out!
