DEF CON Book Club!

Books. We love ‘em. And right now, we have a major reading opportunity happening for all of us, at the same time. What better way to make use of this moment than to read something together?

Enter the #defconbookclub! Starting In April, we’re inviting you to join us - we’ll all read a book together and discuss it in its own Forum thread. Nikita has posted up all the relevant book club info in the Forum thread.

The first task is picking the book, and we’re asking for nominations. Let’s keep it Non-technical, thematically connected to ‘Discovery’ and reasonably easy to locate. Suggestions can go in the info thread.

We’re excited about this. Let’s make the most of this downtime together.

Q: What are DEF CON Groups?

A: The DEF CON Groups were spawned from the annual DEF CON security conference in Las Vegas. The DEF CON Groups (DCGs or DC-Groups) are a gathering point for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'. DCGs are not intended to compete with any other computer groups, such as 2600, but rather to provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and security topics. DCG meetings are open to anyone, regardless of their skill, age, job, gender, etc. DCGs are designed to help you learn new things, meet new people, mentor others in areas you may be strong in, and provide some cohesion within the hacker culture and members.
