Next month will be a hotbed of tech activity here in Las Vegas. Otherwise know as "hacker summer camp", Black Hat (August 4-9), BSides (August 7-8), and DefCon (August 9-12) bring the best and the brightest in the info sec/hacking world to Las Vegas. Needless to say, safety--of both your person and your gear--is a top concern for participants (or even non-participants who just happen to be in the area). Find useful safety tips here, here, and here. Be aware that there are few constraints when it comes to what people will do in the name of tech creativity that there are some fascinating stuff preppers might like, that paranoia is a thing, and that hacker will, well, hack, It's what they do.
