Dear fine hacker folxs,
it is time we decentralize DEFCON.
I'm hereby proposing 2020's DEFCON to be in Europe. More specifically in Portugal, Lisbon.
Then we could just go across Europe from there: Spain, France... each year a new country. Instead of London we could do Scotland and try to hack that damn lake and find Nessie...
It'd be like a really big and long long-term road trip with one year pauses. What say you?
@ella_kane I'm part of the BSidesMunich orga team and swiching event venue withing the same city is a big hassle and brings fear of the unknown with it. Imagining that on a country or even continent scale. Me shudders. ;)
@hashtagsecurity I'm curious. How would you see a hacker Eurotrip going?
@ella_kane Sorry, must have missed your last post. Good question, but I think one con per year would be a good start. similar to how OWASP does it.
Definitely focus on the hacker community and not on commercial aspects (vendor booths and such). Get the right people in and keep the tickets low price. Maybe organize hacker tour busses from major cities to the location? Sounds like a party.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
