Shmoocon 2011

Well it’s that time of year again, only a week till the yearly Shmoocon conference kicks off. After fighting my way through the ticket buying process, a friend of mine helped me to secure a couple of tickets. So once again, I’ll be headed over the pond to DC.

Just taking a look at the schedule for this years conference shows that Shmoocon is no ordinary conference. There’s a great mix of new talks, and more than the fair share of new faces. I, for one, think this is a great thing. I spoke a few years back about the pattern of the same speakers, covering the same topics over and over again. It’s nice to see conferences like BSides, Shmoocon and others (DerbyCon ???) really reaching out an awarding talks based on the topics and research, instead of the name behind the talk!

Anyway, I’m rambling… as usual. So here’s a few talks I’m looking forward to at Shmoocon.

I’m also looking forward to hearing something from Johnny Long. He’s been out in the world doing good as best he can for a long time now, which is more than I can say for most of us (myself included). Lets hope this trip renews some of the well needed support for the hackers for charity project!

Hope to see you in DC…
