So I survived Black Hat and Defcon, it was great fun, f**ing expensive and totally exhausting but totally worth it. Saw a bunch of talks at Black Hat some of which where cool stuff but others sadly where not worth it. Defcon was way too crowded. 12K people I was told. Therefore I couldn't attend any talk :-( Talking to cool (new) people made up for it.
Now I'm at Stanford for a couple of days. Many things planed but ping me if you want to chat.
