w00t

Another new conference in the fold. WOOT, the Workshop On Offensive Technology is launching this summer in conjunction with USENIX. While WOOT sounds extremely cool and the advisory panel is made up of uber smart people, having six conferences on three continents in August makes for some serious competition for top speakers as well as attendee dollars. WOOT is invite only though, so they might win on leet factor.

Don't count Jeff Moss out though - looks like he is planning 8 (that's right, EIGHT) tracks at Black Hat Vegas this summer. So their cfp must be doing pretty well if they can project that much content with a straight face...

Being invite only will make w00t lame if you ask me. It is nothing more than a club of people with large egos picking their friends or people whom have opinions in line with theirs to speak.

Funny enough there is a good chance that I will be there.

Entirely possible that will happen, but hopefully they'll do it right. Invite only can work to weed out the random annoying people that big conferences like USENIX, RSA (gah!) and yes, even Black Hat Vegas inevitably have in attendance...

I'm not optimistic very often, so enjoy it while it lasts.
