Happy Friday the 13th!

October’s IVU meeting featured a virtual talk by HackBeer’d (Beau Woods)

Peg Legs, Pentests, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Avast, ye LAN lubbers! Grab a grog and park yer ParrotOS while ol’ cap’n HackBeer’d tells a tail -f /dev/urandom of pirates, hackers, and the Constitution. This talk loosely traces piracy from its earliest recorded occurrence, the C Peoples overrunning RAMses to end the Big Iron age, from boarding parties to black boxes, with branches into interesting side nodes from history, like surprising links to the US founders. Along the way, learn how pirate code, legal code, and software code resemble each other, and what we can learn from each to strengthen the others.
