Before It Bytes!

Shmoocon 2011 Podcaster Meetup/Party!

SecuraBit will be there and we’ll be giving away the rest of our tshirts we had made last year, and whatever else I can find in the garage.

It will be held in the TDL Bar inside the Hilton where Shmoocon is, from 9pm to 11pm EST on Friday.

In order to get in, you’ll need to grab a ticket from one of the following podcasts:

PaulDotCom, Exotic Liability, SecuraBit, Eurotrash, Security Justice

It’s first come first serve, and we’re splitting 200 tickets up between the podcasts, so email/comment/mention us to get one, or find Chris Gerling or Anthony Gartner!

See you there!
