Not the starting line.
DEFCON is a wonderful tool to feed your technophobia and paranioa. And also to stay at least somewhat in contact with the current trends in technology.

A few good ones:
DEF CON 23 - Richard Thieme - Hacking the Human Body and Brain
Covers the near future of cybernetic augmentations, neural augmentations and ways that gov't and corporate bodies can control/manipulate them.

DEF CON 23 - Charlie Miller & Chris Valasek - Remote Exploitation of an Unaltered Passenger Vehicle
2 guys show how simple it is to attack a smart vehicle with bluetooth or wireless connectivity and take complete and remote control over it. Nearly all modern Dodge vehicles using connectivity were compromised and everything from the radio to brakes could be controlled from a remote location.


DEF CON 23: Confessions of a Professional Cyber Stalker – Ken Westin
This guy covers his history in professionally tracking and catching people utilizing their own technology against them. Often times, getting pictures from the webcams he has hacked and utilizing GPS features built into most all smart devices to pinpoint locations.

DEF CON 22 - Mark Stanislav & Zach Lanier - The Internet of Fails - Where IoT Has Gone Wrong
A Defcon Panel about the Internet of Things and how easily it is to hack and take control of devices within the home that utilize connectivity such as Hottubs and Thermostats connected to phones.

The fragility of the technofuture is far more incomprehensible than what most people can conceive. Most people don't even understand or realize it at all. I'm honestly kinda surprised the cyberwar hasn't become bigger than it is now. I except in 10 years to see some vast changes as to how digital technology is handled. Either for better or worse.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$0.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
