The con that is Notacon is upon us. Notacon is one of the best con’s I have ever attended! It’s a great mix of hacking, security, art, technology and everything in between. It’s also small enough to network with others…oh, and its in Cleveland which means its affordable! Things get started tonight with a free preview beginning at 7pm! Some of the speakers will be giving previews of their talks so go check it out if you can.
Just like previous years, there are some really cool events you need to attend including Whose Slide is it Anyway, the Friday night experience and Blockparty! This year the lock picking village is sponsored by Cleveland Locksport and be sure to check out Deviant Ollam’s new challenge the Defiant Box. Security Justice will also have a live show at 11pm Friday night in the Notacon Radio room. As for talks, this years lineup looks great! Here are my picks of talks to attend this year:
