    - So, first there is a webinar ( for information about this on the 30th of Jan and you have until the 22nd of Feb to register. It's at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT.

    - Let's talk to [Sarah] about just what this means?

    - What is Data Diode Day anyway?

    - Who can be involved in this?

    - What's involved in putting a team together to do this?

    - Is there any charge to participate?

    - Alright, so why we talk a little bit about how this thing will be scored. I mean, our viewers want inside info. C'mon.

    - Can you tell us what a Data Diode is?

    - Why should I be using something like that as a company?

    - Let's talk a little bit about CTF in general:

    • What kind of things do you think teams need to do to really be effective?
    • I know a lot of people are always planning badge challenges for DEFCON. What do you think would be a good strategy for getting a team together, practicing, etc?

    - Do you think there are funding/support sources in the industry for teams? I see these lego robotics league things and they often have "independent teams". I wonder who pays for those?

    • Do you think that CTF is a a good thing to play for high school students?
    • I know you probably have a code of conduct for this event. What do you think the biggest issues are for people attending cons in terms of behavior.
