in Announcement

Update: The date is the 3rd, not the 4th. Repeat, the date is Wednesday August 3rd for the meetup. Also, it is a 21+ venue only. My apologies to the younger twits.

Yup folks, it's that time of year again. That time when hoards of hackers, crackers, geeks, nerds and the odd FBI agent descend on Las Vegas for DefCon.

Which means it is also time for the annual SecurityTwits Las Vegas Meet-up!


Before I get to the details, I want to send out a big thank you to Jack Daniel who put me in touch with Chris Nickerson who offered up the BSides LV venue as a place for us to gather. That just completely rocks.

I also want to thank everybody else who sent me notes offering to help. I may yet call on you 🙂

One final note, unless somebody wanders forward and wants to buy us all drinks, this is a cash bar situation. Because of that, there will not be a guest list/sign-up process. Just show up. If there is room, you'll get in, if there isn't, you won't 🙂 That shouldn't really be a problem, but be warned.

Here are the details:


Wednesday August 3rd, 2011
