DefCon is in full swing now here in Las Vegas.  While it was originally a small, spontaneous gathering of hackers in Las Vegas, it is now a full-fledged annual event with tens of thousands of attendees each summer, complete with hackers, feds, security folks, and the curious.

If you are a hacker, or even marginally interested in tech/hacking/black hat stuff/white hat stuff, the event's website offers a plethora of resources and information on everything from how to hack voting machines to 'disrupting robotic homeostasis and artificial intelligence systems with electromagnetic pulse'.  Needless to say, the center Strip of Las Vegas is currently a hotbed of lines (as usual), hacking activities (don't use an ATM in the area or your cell phone), and parties (of tech geeks but fun nevertheless).  Even if you can't attend in person, there are plenty of ways to reap the rewards of all of the information generated by the event...

After you have ingested so much technical information your brain hurts, you can always check out the bear cams in Alaska.
