DENCON

Defcon, the world’s largest hacker convention, is this coming weekend in Las Vegas. While the convention generally focuses on breaking new technology, digital archivist [Jason Scott] has an interesting surprise for attendees this year. With some help from VintageTech, he’ll be assembling a massive den of retro computing machinery. They’ll have fully functional systems like the PDP-11/70 for people to play with. It sure to be one of the more unique things to see at the con.

  1. never been to one, but since i live in vegas i wont miss it. on a side note, i work at las vegas tattoo and souvenir (702) 384-7379. come on in and get a hackaday tattoo by a geek/artist. ask for Gadget.

    They aren’t old bottles, if you look closely, I believe it is actually rubbing alcohol, which makes sense if he’s restoring an old dusty machine.

  3. BTW, its crystal gyser water. Its in a popular six pack form, Shrink wrapped to prevent bottles excaping. Its usually on sale at your neighbor hood store for about $ 2.89
    any other questions?
