I did a search on Digg.com and was suprised to see that not a soul has written about ShmooCon 2006. I guess all you west coasters only care about DefCon. That is discrimination and WE DON’T HAVE TO TAKE IT!. Back to reality. Well if you don’t know ShmooCon is basically the DefCon for the east coast and is being held in Washington D.C. . Registration is limited, unlike DefCon, so hurry and whip out those Paypal accounts. If you had registered before October 1st then it would have only cost you $75. Blame everyone else for not digging it. Here is a quick like to registration to save you lazy people out there a click:
