  • Black Hat USA 2013: Edward Snowden cutout, sponsor hall

    We went back to FileTrek's Edward Snowden "Hero or villian?" vote at the side of the Black Hat Sponsor Hall to see how the vote was going. Their friendly representative said that at the end of the first day, they were astonished to count the tally and find an even split - a 91-91 heat (attendees voted by putting chips in either of the "hero" or "villain" canisters on FileTrek's table).

    FileTrek told us that they would publish the total results after Black Hat ends today, and that voters came in three distinct flavors: one who would put a chip right in the "villain" canister calling him a traitor, another who'd unhesitatingly vote for "hero" and a third who asked if FileTrek would put a can in the middle.

    Its booth and cardboard cutout of Edward Snowden was situated directly across the aisle from Snowden's former government contractor employer, Booz Allen Hamilton.

  • not a public event ..

    some stuff looks interesting, but horribly expensive.
  • Wanted to check these photos...

    ... but I couldn't handle the constant full browser refreshes. Come on ZDNet, use a real slideshow like the rest of the modern web. You're a technology blog, and can't find a web programmer who can create a real slide show for you? There are a bunch of free ones online. I shouldn't have to weigh how badly I want to see your photos versus the drawback of all the wasted time waiting for full page refreshes. More and more, I just choose to not view the slideshows.

    Sorry to hijack your comments, Violet.
    • Not reading it either

      The problem is they don't want to. With a full refresh they get to serve us more ads and it looks good in the hit count stats.

      I've stopped reading any "slideshow" article unless it's critical to my job function and I suspect I'm not alone. Hopefully Zdnet, @VioletBlue, and other sites doing this realize they're losing visitors and stop this soon.
