The very excellent CarolinaCon starts Friday night in Raleigh. Each year the conference gathers hackers and other technology enthusiasts in one space to hear presentations on everything from copyright law to lock picking. CarolinaCon is one of the last great tech bargains out there. Low travel costs, low entry fee, fascinating speakers, entertaining attendees, and cheap booze; how can you go wrong?
This year's call for presenters was so popular the organizers added another day of talks for no extra cost! Just check out this schedule of presenters and try to tell me this isn't worth $20.
