DEFCON: The Documentary

Synopsis: DEFCON is the world's largest hacking conference, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2012 it was held for the 20th time. The conference has strict no-filming policies, but for DEFCON 20, a documentary crew was allowed full access to the event. The film follows the four days of the conference, the events and people (attendees and staff), and covers history and philosophy behind DEFCON's success and unique experience.
Genre: Documentary
110 min

where basically we gathered at this

restaurant called "D's", or we

called it "Freaky D's", at like 2am,

and basically 20 or 30 of us piled into

the restaurant and we'd have our caravan

of cars all set together, and

that was our group of people.

There are some hijinks that I can't even

imagine mentioning on the documentary,

that can happen on a long 9 hour drive

from the Denver area to Las Vegas.

When you're driving, to get there,

especially from the west coast,

you have to drive through the

middle of fucking nowhere.

And it certainly adds to the experience

when you roll in, and it's just after

sunrise, or just about sunset, you really

have no idea what time it is, and there's

Sin City, and of course you're playing

"Viva Las Vegas" by the Dead Kennedys

or something like that. It does

add to the experience I think.

"Actually, here comes the Hack

Bus now." "Pretty awesome!"

It kind of blows my mind that everyone's

so excited about going to a BBQ

six miles away from the con that have to rent

a taxi for, or go to the store and get food.

I don't know. I just feel like the BBQ

is this misfit love child of DEF CON,

because everyone's, "There's this thing that happens over there

and they're grilling alligator and elk and all this crazy meat."

"Why can't we ever go? Where is it?" And that

kind of adds to the mystery and fun of it.

Man, did I never expect that to become

something a thousand people strong, now.

To me that shows an awesome community

and spirit, and an effort of

"I want to see my friends and hang out with them and

I wanna do something simple, like eat some food."

You know, it's not at the con, there's

no crazy music, it's just a BBQ.

Ever since I was in town around DEF CON

10 or 11 you see those signs in the

airport, "Come Shoot a Machine Gun."
