My good friend pontifex and I are on the panel again this year. So in light of the situation and extended time opportunity we are combining our efforts to show people how to crack (break into) a web site and how to hack (program) to effectively defend against the cracker.

If you were attending this session, what types of question might you ask us?

Talk about the stupid mistakes you can't believe anyone would make but you see them again and again. That should take up the whole session by itself ;)

Careful! As the asker, I'm free to use the word "stupid" but possibly it would be better not to tell people they're being stupid if they haven't already used the word. Same goes for any situation where your gut response is "Are you insane?!"

Well, no system is 100% secure. We want to raise awareness and point out that there is a spike in cracking/hacking around the globe. The software to bring down servers and attack you automatically got so sophisticated that it is scary to watch!

This pubcon is starting to be problematic. I've got multiple instances where there's two must attend presentations at the same time.

Yours is a session I need to see - but at the same time tedster is presenting on site useability, Greg Boser is presenting on SEO, Tim Mayer is presenting on PPC and there's a session on increasing conversions.

And that's only the second session the first day. This pubcon is looking to be be absolutely insane in terms of trying to pick sessions to attend.

That sounds like it'll be an interesting session.
