It's not like i tried to do it, but Im proud that the. Cfp reviewers represent the hackers at our con.

Tony, hawk touches down
However, i am proud to say that def con was the first conference to make mba feedback a priority for their submissions and speakers. The Process Now, we have more than doubled the amount of submissions we have received in the past ten years. This year with almost 600 decisions to make between speeches and workshops, feedback was a challenging task to manage. We have gone from "just a handful" of guest reviewers to 25 consistent reviewers with varying degrees of specialty and expertise. The feedback they produce ranges from the monosyllabic to shakespearian. 3n_ion ) and I work hard to compile and provide that feedback for the submitters, It's not chicken scratch on the back of a paper any more. We are getting larger, the submissions are increasing, the coordination is getting more complex. Trying to find a place to house all the cats is a daunting task, albeit rewarding.

We'd work around the office for days playing the opposite of "the floor is lava" trying to avoid stepping on someone's sql injection. After selecting the best of the bunch, the rejection letters went out. Dead Addict was the first person i knew to reply back with a reason why a talk was rejected. Id never heard of any other conference doing it before and engelsk to this day few can really tackle the large task its become. When I became the Speaker liaison for BH/dc, i began prioritizing more communication, feedback, and I took the time out of respect for the speakers. I made it my goal to try to help people where i could. I always try to provide a kind and thoughtful rejection letter with personalized feedback, but it is also something that is very hard to scale the larger your cfp becomes. Feedback is something I think is very important to growth and success. We respect the hard work and courage of the submitters, i dont know a con organizer that doesnt.
Recently, ive had a few requests to give a talk on the def con cfp process. Although Im not sure how I feel about doing a full-on speech, a speakers corner post seemed appropriate middle ground. I am elated with the successes of def con 24, and I can't help but brag and reflect on where we are and how far we've come. How it was, when I first started helping with the cfp process over a decade ago, i worked with a unique and small group of people. The dark tangent dead Addict directed us to do our best to process the few hundred submissions we received. In those days we printed out cfps on reams of paper, we'd pass them around the muggy seattle office and write our reflections on the back pages in our best chicken scratch. Before the Black hat Submission system, our small group would email cfps to "guest reviewers but the bulk fell on the eyes of just a handful of people. We'd be in the office with papers strewn on the floor, put into rows and sorted piles that occupied the lions share of walking space.

Abc tried too hard to make hawk seem like a nice guy. And what was all this New Age baloney? The Old Man would spout some vague voodoo/hoodoo-type blather every now own and then, and off Hawk would trot, like some sort of mystical, mythical black crusader. It just never really worked for me, and ended up coming off like a bad. Equalizer rip-off, with windchimes. Still, the show was set. C., not New York.

Hawk busted heads and scared evildoers shitless (or at least poopless) for thirteen episodes before abc pulled the plug. It never really attracted much of a fanbase, and, truth to tell, it was never that good, anyway, but it did draw the ire of Mississippi's reverend Donald Wildmon (that ignorant, cynical, bible-thumping ass from Mississippi as Tony randall called him) who denounced it for.

Brooks nailed the dead-eyed cool of the character right to the wall, and provided a sense of real menace and presence to a show that badly needed. So, when the show bit the dust in 1989, after three seasons, it didn't take long for abc tried to try to recoup their investment by spinning off Hawk into his own show. But how to have hawk running around Boston without everyone wondering what had happened to his ol' pal Spenser? They had Hawk pack up his guns, his long leather pre-columbine trenchcoat and his shades and got him the hell out of there, moving him back to his hometown of Washington,.
