Make IVU great again!

It’s been awhile since we followed up with our meetings and had presentations. Well, we’re going to try our best to get things going for IVU, thus we want to MIGA – Make IVU Great Again! We are working on getting more presenters of all levels and getting more workshops going at our meetups.

We had a small group for a pre-IVU meet up at Gulliver’s for some cigars, scotch, whiskey, and beer at Gulliver’s. Fun and relaxation were had by all who attended.

The IVU meet up was busier than has been in a while with around 20 people or so. Maybe it’s a May thing; maybe it’s amazing. Penguino came and had a great presentation on Bitcoin. The presentation covered the general overview of bitcoin transactions, different bitcoin wallet providers, and even generated a side discussion of bitcoin and economics.

The lock pick board was brought out, but mysteriously floated away for another presentation elsewhere. We also discussed next month’s meet up in which we will take a stab at soldering a DEFCON Jack (available on Ebay at the DEFCON Store).

Upcoming Conferences

2014 – May Minutes

Hello IVUer’s,

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

Amongst the talks there are also a few featured events worth mentioning including the Lock pick village, hardware hacking village, HAM testing (Get your HAM license), tamper-evident contest and the infamous capture the flag event.

2009 – April Minutes

Hello IVUer’s

Thanks for coming to IVU the Friday before Easter (or Bunny & Eggs Day) . There were a whole 11 people there and you still missed out one some good fun. We talked about a slue of things and brought a new member up to speed on how things are intended to be run. Certainly not an impressive showing for new members, but in the end even they left the evening laughing and learning.

Israel, your cryptographic wonders and postings have mused yet another sole. Please keep up the good showing and maybe one day someone will be able to solve your challenge.

Until next month. Talk to you all soon. Please do not forget to join our mailing list.
