So, since @defcon, I'm starting to see new followers, so I guess it's time for a quick recap. Hi! I'm @bluknight. I run @dcskytalks with the help of a great group of talented individuals. Honestly, I'm probably the least talented of them. But don't hold that against them. 1/

I would be interested in this too. And I really need to learn (and do) more python.
Hey neighbors! Anyone know a python tool that will highlight unused vars/functions in a project? It's time for a bit of (late) spring cleaning.

I'm watching #defcon family gather in Vegas for what promises to be an interesting year. I won't deny that I wish I were there. It's not easy making the unpopular choices, especially when they appear so easy. But such is being an adult.

I truly hope that my fears are wrong and unfounded, and that I can regret my decision to not attend DEF CON this year in retrospect. However, given when I see at the present time, I feel justified in my decision to not attend in person this year, and to not hold Skytalks.

Growing up the son of a multiple-organ transplant recipient (and therefore having to be aware of the immunocompromised) and having also grown up in a tourist town, where I note that many people don't pay attention to what they're doing, I just see too many "bad factors" at play.

Yes, I've seen reports of "most people are masking, etc" -- just from my experience as of a month ago, I'm not certain I believe it. And having experienced a certain... segment... of the crowd that attends DEF CON, I wonder how well the mask restrictions will hold...

... especially outside of convention-controlled space. Like I observed in a previous tweet-thread: you can control who you interact with. You can't control who THEY interact with. And I don't have the trust in a lot of people to do the right thing right now.

To all of you out in the 702 for Summer Camp: stay safe. Stay healthy. I want to see you all out there when this actually settles down. And I do hope you have a fun con.

You know what? I'm going to make this a little louder, because I have the power. Even the "big names" in our community/industry have been bullied at one time or another. Some still are. Some are being the bullies. Only you can stop the cycle of emotional violence.
This. I had similar incidents at my first DEF CONs (8 and 9), and it's something that was really difficult to process... and I still am. If you see people in your cadre being shitbags, STOP THEM.

Unfortunately, we will not be live at Defcon this week, but we are virtually live (with a bunch of video streaming) from the Defcon Discord and Twitch channels (as well as audio on DEF CON Radio) starting Thursday. If you are in Vegas, we'll be on the video screens in Chill!

At DEF CON 8 I watched a single negative experience cast a shadow over an otherwise incredible weekend for one SLC based hacker. And that stuck with me. Please choose kindness. Watch what you say and how you treat people at #defcon. Your words and actions matter. @defcon

And I'd be having to drive through (or avoid) this mess if I was going to Vegas like originally planned. Maybe COVID isn't as bad after all.
If you're planning a trip to the mountains this weekend, there's a high chance that you will be faced with road closures due to flash flooding and mudslides. trib.al/yN3WiDX

Anyone got any fascinating zero days they want to drop around 4pm today since it’s Friday?

Half of you questioning Simone Biles’ “toughness” can’t even wear a mask for five minutes in Starbucks. Have a seat.

interesting to see... blackhat.com/us-21/faq.html page has not yet changed when talking about mask guidance, it would seem. unless i'm seeing a cached copy?
