Summercon is our chance to get together, talk to each other face-to-face, and swap information about innovations, trends, practices, and rumors in the field of computer security. We welcome all walks of life and all sides of the debate to Summercon: hackers, crackers, script kiddies, w4r3z dud3z, feds, narcs, cops, concerned parents, hangers-on, strippers, media whores, Geraldo Rivera, and Kevin Mitnick. We've been doing this for some time, and are among the few people who understand how much technology influences our lives. Unlike most people, we try to take back some sort of control whenever possible. Oh, and also, we drink a lot.
