BSides SF: Saturday

Much like my notes from BSides Seattle, this will just be a quick dump of notes from the talks I attended today. (Almost) all talks are also being recorded by Irongeek, so this only serves to highlight what I considered key points of the talks I attended. Tomorrow, I’ll be doing my workshop (stop by and say hi) so my notes are likely to be considerably lighter.

Keynote: A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

John Perry Barlow, co-founder, EFF

While not at all a technical talk, John Perry Barlow is an inspiring speaker and an amazing visionary. His appreciation of the politics involved in “cyberspace” is on point, and it really made me think.

While he first related the story of the events leading up to the founding of the EFF, including the writing of the Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace, but to my mind, the most interesting part of his keynote was the Q&A.
