Lori joined her first Internet startup as a senior system administrator. When that company went public, she was hooked, and helping smaller firms prevail against well established rivals has been her passion ever since. She is currently COO at a company that specializes in technical consulting and training. Lori is also a mother of five. Between the kids, the dog, and the horse, she is grateful for a full and happy home, and the occasional escape to the woods with her husband.

Barbi aka cinnamonflower is a graphic designer by trade, but she’s always gravitated socially toward the IT world. She met Funsized in an elevator at Defcon 25, and she wouldn’t let him leave her sight until he gave her his twitter handle. A few weeks later, Funsized approached Barbi with the opportunity to collaborate in the newly-hatched idea of ShellCon, and she jumped at the chance, because she’d always wanted to work on graphics for an InfoSec convention. ShellCon is her labor of love, and when she’s not designing, she enjoys digging in her garden, talking to strangers, and recounting exaggerated stories at cocktail party gatherings.

Traversing from subnet to subnet, he is always looking for new ways that he can bring his networks togther, both IRL and on the net. His hobbies include building crazy live disks, ferret racing, and hanging out in trashcans.
