Johnny Long flew for 21.5 hours with another six hours of layovers to get from Uganda to Defcon this year. He took a few minutes out of his day to talk about Hackers for Charity, the work he’s doing in Uganda teaching people to use computers and some of the issues he’d had with receiving charitable contributions and PayPal. He’s issues with PayPal are almost comical in retrospect, but the help that came out of Twitter and blogging illustrate exactly how much power our community has as a whole. If you’re at Defcon, make sure you stop by his booth in the vendor area.
