It started with DEFCON with friends saying "I'd like to hold an event where hackers exchange with each other" and "I will hold it in Las Vegas, OK." The reason why I decided to Las Vegas is that it was "It's a place that you can go cheap by plane".

"I did not mean to go to DEFCON at first," Noid said. I was invited to a friend by all means and joined in, and now I am involved in organizing as a management side.

Mr. Moss who finished the first DEFCON rushed inquiries such as "I got scared" "When next?"
