Bonus March Meetup!

Written by  on March 16, 2017

Hey everyone!

If you are free on March 27th at 6PM, we will be hosting a second meetup at the Wilde Roast!

Josh More (frequent speaker on topics ranging from infrared photography, to evading digital surveillance, to infosec industry trends) has taken several interns under his wing and wants to show them what the hacking community is all about.  All of us attend DC612 for different reasons – many are here to learn, some are here to teach, others just want to meet with like-minded individuals to socialize.  Maybe it’s all three.  Whatever the reasons, we have all grown professionally as a result no matter how far along we are in our careers.  The hacking community is built upon sharing information freely, and we owe it to ourselves and each other to not only share that information within our group, but to invite others in and expand so they can add to the collective whole.  Like the Borg, but less implant-y.

In the spirit of teaching, learning, and growing as a community, Josh is inviting his interns to join us for an evening of short talks from whoever has something to share.  You don’t need a Power Point presentation, or to dress up, or even to stand up.  Talk about something for which you have a passion, or a project you are working on, or some cool new technological concept you recently learned.  5 minutes, 2 minutes, 60 seconds, however much time you need to get a group of interns excited!

Josh will also be so kind as to provide appetizers for the group, in case you needed any more reason to join us  🙂

Hope to see you all then!

DC612 – Thursday March 9th, 6PM @ Wilde Roast

Written by  on March 4, 2017

Hello again!

On this month’s agenda we have a first-time speaker and relative newcomer to the DC612 scene: Taya Ellingworth.

She will be taking us back more than a hundred years, into the dimly-lit parlors of the Victorian-age seers, mediums, psychics, and clairvoyants.  Possibly considered early hackers, they employed an arsenal of clever tricks – some simple and others fairly complex – to part their marks from their money, and convince the masses that they could commune with the dead, read minds, and more.  Taya will provide a history of some of the more well-known mystics, and their routines, at the risk of angering their spirits.

As always, food and drink orders starting at 6 with the presentation beginning around 7 or when enough people have shown up.

See you then!
