For Gavin Andreson to have been overlooked as a witness to this event.  It's not like they don't know we exist.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Maybe it should be concerning that NSA had an unprecedented presence at Def Con, which also had large Bitcoin-user attendance, and AFAIK, the only USG agency to ask for Gavin was the CIA. Doesn't sound like particularly welcoming behavior.

One of the first steps of preventing growth of a diametrically opposed system to the one you control, is to marginalize it by pretending as if it doesn't exist while subsidizing systems that are beneficial to your power structure. Seems to be the care here.

NSA is perfectly free to attend DEFCON and they've never been discouraged from doing so in the past. One of the tenets of DEFCON is that individuals from all perspectives and positions -- government, big business or otherwise -- should be able to open up a dialogue with the security community. We only benefit from increased speech and participation.

They might be a bit creepy (and people are justified being wary of them) but their strategic interests are aligned with the passions of DEFCON attendees. No need to feel intimidated. DEFCON has been on the government's radar for a long time. Now they're actually treating it like a constructive resource and handing it some legitimacy.
