Defcon 13

What a hit this event was. We had to endure some serious heat and some serious drinking and lack of sleep, but we also got to enjoy some well thought out and intelligent talks, lots of interesting strangers and some great company with old friends and new.

A couple things about being a female at Defcon:

  1. There was NEVER a line for the bathroom. For the first time in my life I saw lines for the men’s room while I was always able to walk right in and have a pee.
  2. During the day I felt as a respected equal, but as the sun went down and the bellies filled with booze inevitably every guy that talked to me found themselves unable to do so without simultaneously man handling me.

    If it makes you feel any better I would have manhandled you during the day.
