Hacker Helps Parents, Gets to DEF CON(?)

I'm currently between contract renewals, & need to survive and help out my parents. Their business will kick back in in the form of invoice payments in a few months, but for now they need me, and that means I need your help getting through summer.

The conference part is a fun aside (it's a toss-up between DEF CON & HOPE,) and will be an amazing business networking opportunity for me. I've gone before, but circumstances weren't so dire - I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't have to.

A lot of folks have also asked whether I'll be attending a hacker conference so we can meet and network IRL, and I would like to be able to do that for them as well. So, this is my way of killing two birds with one petition. Three, actually - my parents are in financial trouble, and as much as I can spare will go to them and their rent/needs.

I've listed a number of things I'm willing to do to express my gratitude on the various donation tiers, but you are of course free to enter your own amounts and make your own requests. Also feel free to suggest your own rewards to be added to the list.

Thank you for any help you can render. Also, if you'd like to offer me a more stable job, feel free!

Warm Regards,

Adrian Lamo
