I confirmed last weekend that I will be presenting at the 6th HOPE conference again this year in New York City. I submitted 2 talks, but they were after the deadline, so only 1 was accepted.
The talk that was accepted is actually not a normal presentation, but more of an event. It will be the first episode of season 4 of Binary Revolution Radio and will have both myself and several others on stage with me including nottheory, zer0db, and others according to availability.
But what will the show contain? That is the question…
The show will be 1.5 hours long and will focus mainly on the conference itself and the experiences of the weekend. It WILL NOT be pre-scripted or planned. It will be impromptu and very light-hearted and will include interviews with several people from the audience, so bring your questions and comments with you. We will probably bring some random people onto the show and some special surprise guests as well.
We will have some free stuff to give out to audience members who participate in the show and we will be getting together directly afterwards to hang out and grab some food as a group activity for BinRev forum members and supporters.
There will be an announcement at the end of the show pertaining to the future of Binary Revolution Radio, so stick around until the end! “The Revolution Will Be Digitized!”
Starting this weekend, the worlds phirst hacking/phreaking reality radio show begins! It is a LIVE show appearing EXCLUSIVELY on DDP HackRadio and YOU can easily participate.
This will be an enormously phun project that anyone can get involved in. It was another “phirst of its kind” project that required some interest setup and coding on our part. Nottheory did a phantastic job in coding up the interface and the connections between servers. Click below for more information.
We have set up a system that allows multiple users to call in to the BellsMind PBX and participate in the show. The show itself is really not a formal show like many of the others that we have done in the past. This is a freestyle show that is really just a conference call that is streamed live over the internet. That is what makes it a “reality” show. We have no idea who is going to be doing what.
Ideally, we would like to think that it will be a lot of phun phone calls and maybe some light-hearted jokes and phone system “exploration”. We would also love to see people take it upon themselves to bring actual topics of discussion phor everyone, but that may be a little too organized phor this type of show.
The reality aspect of the show will be interesting to observe as well. While we hope and encourage people to enjoy the show, and while we will be liberal with the content, we also realize that some people will just be the complete jerks that they are and try to ruin it phor everyone. There will be people who try to TONE out the line and others who will spout abusive and offensive language. While we will allow an almost unlimited amount of phreedom, if someone does cross the line to the point where they endanger themselves or others, or commit act of an illegal nature, we do have an administrative system written to address these issues and kick people phrom the conference if they become a problem.
We are also in the process of implementing some other phun pheatures such as the ability to vote off other callers like the television reality shows (a la Survivor, the apprentice, etc…). These changes, when implemented, along with phull instructions (including the call-in number) can be phound at PhreakPhactor.net and all changes/announcements will be posted there phirst!!
In July 2004, I attended and presented at the 5th HOPE conference in NYC. The subject of my presentation was “AS/400: Lifting the veil of obscurity” which was an introduction to the AS/400, how it works, and where common mistakes are made from an administration standpoint.
While the MP3 audio version has been available for some time, it appears that 2600 magazine (the people who run the conference) have made all of the videos available on their web site now as well.
You can get a copy of my presentation for $5.00 on SVCD at the 2600 store. The entire list of presentations is at this page. I also made a 5-10 minute appearance on sl1pm0de’s excellent “hacker radio” presentation as well, so I recommend you pick that up while you are there.
