NYC Resistor’s origin goes back to some of its founders attending the Chaos Computing Congress in 2008 and this year we again have a great showing at CCC in Hamburg, Germany. Many Resistors members will be attending and we’ll add to the giant pile of hackerspace stickers.
Several NYC Resistor members will be giving presentations at 32c3: Caroline Sinder’s “When Algorithms Fail in Our Personal Lives” (2015-12-30 at 14:00), Matthew Borgatti’s “My Robot Will Crush You With Its Soft Delicate Hands!” (2015-12-27 at 23:00), Trammell Hudson’s “Thunderstrike 2: more Mac EFI firmware vulnerabilities” (2015-12-27 at 20:30) and a joint presentation by Adelle Lin and Trammell Hudson on “Vector Retrogaming with MAME and XY monitors” (2015-12-28 at 18:15).
The Congress provides free live streams of all of the presentations, so even if you can’t attend the event you can still watch and ask questions on their IRC channel. There are four days of four presentation tracks with around one hundred talks on a wide range of technology, security, society and art topics. It is well worth looking through the list of events!
