View Full Version : 24th Chaos Communication Congress Recordings

Today is the last day of the annual Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin. As usual they cover a broad variety of topics around hacking, communication, security issues, science, cultural developments etc pp. Geek stuff and as most of the lectures are in english these days, i thought i give you a link to the recordings.
Some are already online, the rest will follow "when they're ready".

Rapid Prototype Your Life
The time is now to make anything you can imagine
The tools are at hand to free you from the bonds of consumer slavery. No longer must you rely on distant and faceless factories or bow down before the false idols of mass produced consumer manufactured items. Never again look into the aisles of oblivion filled with mass produced products. Take rapid prototype manufacturing into your life and return to a time before corporations robbed you of our individualism. A cottage industry paradise awaits those with the digital skills and the means to acquire or build the machines that can actualize the items that exist now only in your imagination.

Just finished #3052, a documentary about Joseph Weizenbaum. Really enjoyed it. RIP.
Wassup here, do you think a "hacker" conference is something illegal, or why is nobody commenting? Sure enough enough nerds are here. :D
Oh, and Roger Dingledine of TOR fame is my current favorite Übernerd. Great approach, that guy.
Also, if you're into specifics, don't miss the ultimate C64 talk.

WikiLeaks Release 1.0
Insight into vision, motivation and innovation
During the last 12 months WikiLeaks representatives have been talking at numerous conferences, from technology via human rights to media focused, in an effort to introduce WikiLeaks to the world. WikiLeaks has had major document releases that have spawned attention in all major newspapers by now, it has triggered important reform and has established itself as part of the accepted media reality.
Little did we have the chance though to talk about a bigger picture, especially of how we perceive the future and its constraints.
We therefore would like to talk about our vision of the information society, journalism's role in that society, as well as our role in it. Along this vision we will introduce new features for WikiLeaks Release 1.0, that will be no short of changing the world as we all know it.

Have read; will check it out. Currently I inhabit a cell, albeit one in a spreadsheet. Too much work to give your stuff a thorough go right now. I will say I find rapid prototyping eg interesting, tho not so much the philosophy in the quote above, but will gotakealooksoonest.

The organisation actually has Chaos in its name. Not Communication. If that braindead little joke is everything you have to add, just stfu.

Welcome - 26C3 Public Wiki (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2009/wiki/Main_Page)
26C3: Here Be Dragons
The 26th Chaos Communication Congress (26C3) is the annual four-day conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC).
3rd January 2010, 11:09 PM
... by the Chaos Computer Club. Look them up on the internetz.

You two want to at least grease up first?
That's the only way this is going to be interesting to the rest of us.

27C3: we come in peace
27th December 2010, 01:31 PM
Because that would give you the chance to see the difference between the CCC (the organization), and 27C3 (the event).
27th December 2010, 02:35 PM
They are not only the largest and oldest computer club in the world (at least that's what they told me), but also the best IT-enduser-lobby worldwide (from what i've gathered). Those guys directly brief the german government on IT and privacy issues, which results in dutch hackers praising Germany as a privacy paradise - which doesn't mean much, still a lot of work to do and assults to counter.

Watching live, this one (ID 4263) just ended:
My name is Nicholas Merrill and I was the plaintiff in a legal case in the US court system where I challenged the FBI’s policy of using a feature of the so-called USA PATRIOT act - what are called “National Security Letters” - to bypass the American Constitution's system of checks and balances and in violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights - in order to obtain protected personal information and to unmask anonymous Internet users. I spent over 6 years not able to speak to anyone (other than my lawyers) about my case - forced to lie to those closest to me due to an FBI gag order that carried a possible 10 year prison sentence for violating it. However the lawsuit resulted in the establishment of two key legal precedents and made changes that affect every Internet worker and Telephone worker in America. I would like to speak to the 27C3 audience in order to tell about my experience and to challenge (and offer my support and assistance to) those individuals who are in a position to challenge government surveillance requests to follow their consciences and do so.
People who work at Internet Service Providers and Telephone companies as well as IT workers at Universities and private businesses are increasingly likely to encounter government attempts at surveillance. I would like to speak to the CCC regarding my experiences in resisting a National Security Letter and also a “Grand Jury Subpoena” as well as my experience of being gagged by the FBI for nearly 7 years - unable to speak on the subject or identify myself as the plaintiff in the NSL lawsuit.
He got what he deserved: standing ovations.
Next and concluding the evening is a feature about Stanislaw Lem, one of my favorite authors. Event titled "the dissapointed do-gooder". Do-Gooder is what my translator does to "Weltverbesserer" - talk is in german language.
The Central Scrutinizer
28th December 2010, 08:11 PM
I thought this might be a thread about Jerry Pournelle.
29th December 2010, 07:54 PM
.. but then it just turned out to be the unofficial forum management thread. :p
29th December 2010, 08:33 PM
Awesome, CE, I've been to their website before and heard about the gatherings but never got into it until now.
31st December 2010, 02:22 PM
You're welcome. :)
Recordings of this year are starting to come in, you can find them here (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2010/wiki/Documentation). Some are also on YouTube. Here's the Keynote by Rop Gonggrijp, one of the founders of continental europe's first private ISP, XS4ALL in Amsterdam:

I really enjoyed this Speech : "Copyright Enforcement Vs. Freedoms".
The 27C3 was a Meeting of extraordinary talented People discussing serious Matters and having Fun.
Also noteworthy : The "Fnord Jahresrückblick" (english translation available) and "CCC Jahresrückblick" (german only) really made me ROFL IRL. :D
26th December 2011, 07:13 AM
Starts tomorrow. :cheerleader2
Schedule is here (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/Fahrplan/index.en.html) (Times are UTC+1).
Streams will be there (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/wiki/Documentation).
28th December 2011, 09:02 AM
Conference is in full swing, everbody got an ultrafancy badge... :D
Besides being a shiny electronic name tag, the r0ket is an easy to use full featured microcontroller development board.
Stuff gets youtubed (http://youtube.com/28c3) and in addition they have an independent on-demand-streaming (http://ondemand.28c3.fem-net.de/). Livestream here (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/wiki/Streaming).
In half an hour the TOR guys will report How governments have tried to block Tor (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2011/Fahrplan/events/4800.en.html).
Roger Dingledine and Jacob Appelbaum will talk about how exactly these governments are doing the blocking, both in terms of what signatures they filter in Tor (and how we've gotten around the blocking in each case), and what technologies they use to deploy the filters -- including the use of Western technology to operate the surveillance and censorship infrastructure in Tunisia (Smartfilter), Syria (Bluecoat), and other countries. We'll cover what we've learned about the mindset of the censor operators (who in many cases don't want to block Tor because they use it!), and how we can measure and track the wide-scale censorship in these countries. Last, we'll explain Tor's development plans to get ahead of the address harvesting and handshake DPI arms races.
26th December 2012, 06:09 PM
Yup, that's right, as the tickets were sold out literally in minutes the last years, this year they decided to finally leave the good old Berlin cave and move to Hamburg with a venue twice as large, expecting 6K attendants.
Will start the next 11 UTC+1, Schedule is here (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/Fahrplan/), streaming link about to come.

Two events maybe interesting for the JREF Forum audience later tonight - ID 5230 (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/Fahrplan/events/5230.en.html), in a good 2 hours in Saal 6:
Stylometry and Online Underground Markets
Stylometry uses linguistic information found in a document to perform authorship recognition. In this talk, we will present how stylometry can be used to deanonymize users in multilingual underground forums. [...]
And after that, for the magicians, in Saal 4 (http://events.ccc.de/congress/2012/Fahrplan/events/5270.en.html):
Experiments of the historical psychic
This is fun stuff for the late night program, not a serious talk: Is it possible to read sb. others mind?
In the late 1920ies/early 1930ies Berlin was excited by the famous mindreader and fortune-teller Erik Jan Hanussen who performed his strange abilities on stage. His act was so convincing that leading nazis believed in his powers and wanted him for advice – until they decided to murder him.
Markus Kompa tells the true story of the mysterious mindreader 'Erik Jan Hanussen' (1889-1933) and offers to copy Hanussen's experiments with participation of the audience. [...]
