wtf is dc585?

a very good question, that. In a nutshell the answer goes like this:

DEF CON is (in their own words) one of the oldest and largest continuously running hacker conventions around.

DEF CON Groups (DCGs) were spawned from the annual DEF CON security conference, and are a gathering point for folks interested in the alternate applications of modern technology, referred to properly as 'hacking'. The DefCon Groups are identified by their area code, and 585 is the area code for Rochester, NY.

So... dc585 is a gathering point in Rochester, NY for folks interested in hacking. It's important to note that DCGs are not intended to compete with any other computer groups, such as 2600, but simply provide yet another gathering place for the discussion of technology and security topics.

Okie... so what are your plans?

the same thing we do every night...
