Irvine Underground has been invited to the first ever Disconnect Camp happening May 1-3, 2015. This one of a kind event is at a summer camp venue located near Big Bear, California. With a unique venue comes unique approaches to how a conference is ran. All food is included, tent camping is encouraged (although cabins are available) and instead of talks you will be able to actively engage with the presenters who are coming down for the event.
Get that tent and those hiking boots out of storage (or head to your local sporting goods store and pick up a few things) and join everyone in the mountains of southern California for a weekend of tech, trees, and camping (really, glamping … food is catered for the event! and there are showers! Showers are important.)
If you would like a ticket you can use the invitation code: “iattendivu”. If you would like to coordinate sharing a cabin, come to the next IVU.
P.S. I’ve been told there is a 24/7 nacho cheese fountain.
We had a nice sized group of people, about 15 or so. Brandon Cholodenko treated us all by bringing a piece of legendary technology, a functional Apple I he’s been working on, thats soon to be heading to the Bugbook Historical Microcomputer Museum in Floyd, VA. If you missed seeing this awesome piece of equipment in person check out the photos, and just pretend like you were actually there.
Longstanding member of Irvine Underground and constant presence at Def Con, Frazier Cunningham gave a riveting presentation that delved into the immense possibilities and ethical dangers of biohacking. We’ve made a pdf of the PowerPoint slides available for all interested parties. BioHacking PowerPoint Slides
LayerOne is security conference focused on hacking and security. This years conference will be held May 24-25 2014 in Monrovia.

Many of the Irvine Underground folks will be present at LayerOne. Come support this local conference memorial day weekend! More information at LayerOne.org
We know you’ve been getting bored of the last rendition of the Irvine Underground site, so we’ve secretly been working the past few weeks behind the scenes… Hopefully you’ll like the new look as much as we do!
As usual we’ll be at defcon this year! Be sure to stop by the booth and do a dance for everyone!
Another great get-together… IVU at Medieval Times Drinking and Yelling – Red Knight got pwned… but didn’t matter anyway since the story is different now. Read the rest of this entry »
