We can’t stop the signal. DEF CON 29 will be a hybrid conference, partially in-person, and partially online. DEF CON will not be a “normal” con, but more like DEF CON “Different.”

"Signals From The Villages" is the ITSPmagazine theme for our Coverage Conversations at this year's DEF CON.
It's become a tradition to connect with the organizers of the events we cover to get their insight behind the theme, the topics, and other important points attendees need to know before they go.

In this episode, we connect with Wednesday, Press Department Lead for DEF CON, and Kevin, the Village Lead/Vendor Lead responsible for organizing the numerous villages and vendors that take the floor (physically and virtually) during the event.
