Tuesday January 14, 2014 at Hive13 – DIY BioSci

January 12th, 2014 1 comment

Join us at Hive13 this Tuesday, January 14, when our regular 2nd Tuesday of the month guest speaker program will resume for the new year, immediately following the brief 7:30 pm general meeting.

Member Mike Horwarth (who is a UC PhD stident) will share a brief (30 minute) presentation on Hacking Genes:  Synthetic Biology and DIY-Science.

Modern Biology has taken us from the double helix to genetic engineering and personal genomics.  Biotech is now on the cusp of the synthetic biology revolution, promising to create radically new organisms using machine-written DNA.  Citizen scientists are starting to explore these techniques, hacking genes in garage labs and bio-makerspaces.  At the same time public unease with genetic modification is growing.  Who will control this technology, and how will the DIY-Biology movement evolve?  Mike will talk about the basics of synthetic biology, current projects in the DIY-Bio community, and ideas for DIY-Bio at Hive13.

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in learning more about this organic branch of hacking are welcome to come to the meeting and this presentation.  (Find Us)

Cinci2600 Friday, December 6th @ 7pm

November 18th, 2013 1 comment

much pwningzCinic2600 is Friday, December 6th 2013 (the Friday *AFTER* the Thanksgiving holiday weekend) at its usual time and place: 7pm at the Hive13 hackerspace: 2929 spring grove ave in Camp Washington (known locally as The Anchor Building).

Cameron will be demonstrating an end-to-end assault on a residential network, from compromising the wireless network to getting a shell on the PC, and all of the mischief that can be caused along the way. I will be following up with some steps you can take to prevent some of these problems and how you can hopefully spot some of these shenanigans before something bad happens.

As always, if you have something to present or to demonstrate please bring it by :-)

Maps and other details about Hive13 can be found here. See you there!
