Re: Kudos to DEF CON
I'm not sure how many five year olds actually participated, but I bet they will be our bosses in ~15 years....

Re: Kudos to DEF CON
My son participated a couple of years ago, but he was one of the older kids. He enjoyed it and still wears his social-engineer.org t-shirt. :-) His favorite part of DEF CON was Lockpick Village, which has come in handy around the house when someone gets locked out.

Kudos to DEF CON
I hope this sticks so I can bring my girls in a couple years.  I don't want either of them going the route of our Canadian friend Mr. Ben-Itzhak.  That said, I'd be interested to see the format and how age agnostic it is.  Regardless, there's nothing more exciting than watching kids burning with inspiration and seeing what young human brains are really capable of.
