What are Local Defcon Groups?
The Defcon Groups were spawned from the annual Defcon security conference in Las Vegas. The Defcon Groups (DCGs or DC-Groups) are a gathering point for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'. DCGs are not intended to compete with any other computer groups, such as 2600, but rather to provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and security topics. DCG meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. DCGs are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture and it's members.
There are two DC404 Mailinglists: a Meeting Announcements list, and an open discussion DC404-Chat list. To join either or both, click Lists in the sidebar.
The chat list is the best way to stay in the loop, and is usually pretty low-traffic.
