Noid

In this episode of the Hack the Planet Podcast:

Noid is the former head of DEF CON security, founder of the LayerOne conference and the Black Lodge Research hackerspace, gunsmith, and anti-zombie technology enthusiast. We talk about the early history and social dynamics of BBS’s, the formation and growth of DEF CON, how to run a security team for unruly hackers in the middle of the desert, and why you shouldn’t go to DEF CON this year.
