Shmoocon. Hell Yeah!
Topic: Society 7:39 pm EST, Feb  6, 2005

I had a great time and plan on attending next year. ShmooGroup were totally gracious hosts. The crowd was subdued but talkative and intelligent. Very few Shmooballs flew.

Jason Scott's preview of his BBS Documentary series was awesome. We hackers have a very interesting history. This is a must see (I will post a operate review).

Caezar's keynote was very inspirational and smacked of good 'ol common sense.

We pimped stickers and flyers promoting Interz0ne & Packetwars.

Dan Kaminsky's talk was great. It is the first time I have seen him live. Very good energy level and overall good speaker. But the content was what impressed me the most. DNS is evil. Even though a couple of his demos didn't work, most of them did. Streaming video through DNS lookups bypassing firewall rules was very impressive. But his last demo was potentially even more impressive; Spoofed MD5 hashes from a command line utility; no public code available at this time ;(

Shmoocon. Hell Yeah!

Spherical robot provides rolling security cover
Topic: Science 9:48 pm EST, Jan 30, 2005

Excerpt: "Other robots being developed could be much better suited to indoor tasks, however. For example, researchers at Case Western University in Cleveland, US, are working on insect-inspired bots that can overcome irregular surfaces and steps."

I welcome our new spooky electronic spook overlords. -Pk

January 23, Associated Press — Armed robotic vehicles headed for Iraq combat. The U.S. Army is preparing to send 18 remote−controlled robotic warriors to fight in Iraq beginning in
March or April. The Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection Systems(SWORDS), will be the first armed robotic vehicles to see combat. Military officials like to compare the roughly three−foot−high robots favorably to human soldiers: They don't need to be trained, fed or clothed. They can be boxed up and warehoused between wars. But officials are quick to point out that these are not the autonomous killer robots of science fiction. A SWORDS robot shoots only when its human operator presses a button after identifying a target on video shot by the robot's cameras. The SWORDS' developers say its tracks, like those on a tank, can overcome rock piles and barbed wire, though it needs a ride to travel faster than 4 mph. Running on lithium ion batteries, it can operate for one to four hours at a time, depending on the mission. The Army has been testing it over the past year at Picatinny and the Aberdeen 2 Proving Grounds in Maryland to ensure it won't malfunction and can stand up to radio jammers and other countermeasures.

If you do not recommend this link, you are a jerk!

How could you fail to promote such a worthy cause when it only takes two clicks of your mouse? Don't be a jerk.

Once you have recommended this link, if you do not actually donate some money, you are a jerk.

How could you advocate that other people donate money when you haven't the spine for it yourself?

Don't be a jerk!

Lets put it this way... Did you donate money or time or blood after 9-11? This tragedy impacted far, far more people. Furthermore, this is South East Asia, not NYC. These people don't have effective relief infrastructure, and they don't have big life insurance plans... If the victims of 9-11 deserve your compassion, and they do, then the victims of this Tsunami do as well, and in fact they are even more in need of your help.

Don't be a jerk. Click Recommend.

Nice guy. Cool guy. It's a shame to see him go. It's one thing when a scumbag like Tupac or Biggie gets it for being a piece of shit. It's another thing entirely when your message was positive, you were a nice, rather humble fellow, and you drop dead before your time. He will be missed. Wonder what he's cooking up right now with Jammaster Jay. Guess we will have to wait a while to find out.
