DEFCON 18 is coming up from Friday July 30th to Sunday August 1st in Las Vegas. They always have cool badges so you should at least sign up just for that.

The EFF is also running a contest to sign up attendees and gather new members. You can go directly to their web site or click on the following image to be part of The Book’s efforts to support the EFF:
