cinic2600 is this friday, at its usual time and place: 7pm at hive13.
i’ll be giving a talk on some of the technical aspects of the NSA domestic surveillance program.
of all of the talks i have given, this one has broken my personal record for number internet memes included in a presentation, so come for the memes, stay for the memes.
A shortage of speakers and presentations has caused a great many cinci2600 meetings to drift by, so tonight we are going to watch a movie instead. Come on by Friday, August 6th at 7PM and watch a hacker themed film. It has been suggested that we watch “Sneakers” but there are other films available as well as some defcon and HOPE presentations if you want the night to be more academic.
We are getting together again with Sam for more lock picking. It will be the same format as last time, a short presentation on a lockpick technique followed by hanging out and picking locks and ending with a competition of some sort.
If you missed last month, have no fear, someone can bring you up to speed. So, grab your picks and locks and come hang out. If you don’t have your own picks, there will be plenty present and we can show you how to make some picks of your own.
Sam the Lockpick Guy and I will be hanging out at Hive13 on the 21st, picking locks and stuff. Well, Sam will be picking, I will mostly be swearing. This is the first of what will hopefully become a regular meeting of local lockpickers.
When we have enough people meeting regularly, we can apply to become a local chapter of The Open Organization Of Lockpickers (TOOOL), but on Friday we will be mostly hanging out, meeting other lockpickers, and picking locks.
So grab your picks and locks and come join us for an evening of locksport :-)
If you don’t have locks or picks, have no fear, there will be plenty there, plus a tutorial on making your own pick from a hairpin.
You can also check out the wiki page for more details and links to info about TOOOL:
We had 5 attendees (no including myself) and we tinkered with the first two chapters of Think Python and learned about comments, variables, values, types, orders of operation, and more. We also discovered that print is a function in python 3.0, and that printing the value of a variable can yield slightly different results than the raw output. also, we discovered that print is a function in python 3.0
If you couldn’t make it this week and are worried about falling behind, have no fear. We can recap last week’s progress before we proceed to chapter 3. So don’t be shy!
