Hacking Session Floor Space
Some sessions got so crowded, there was no where to sit. Sometimes the side isle standing room would fill up. Due to fire rules, sitting on the floor of the center isle was a hazard. Faced with not getting to see a hot session, Thomas from LA thought of an original floor hack: He bought a small, $10 folding camping chair. He pulled it next to a hotel chair, and got a seat in the center isle of every crowded session! Thomas tells the Data Security Podcast that the “Goons” (DefCon staff) appreciated his innovative approach to crowded sessions.
