.::DEFCON 201 Meet Up — June 2020 — Rainbow Tables::.
====================================================== Date: June 19th, Friday
Time: 7:00 PM EST — ????
Facebook [TOR]: TBA
Welcome to the June 2020 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!
So, right when the world MIGHT just get rid of COVID-19, our “President” signed an executive order that censors the entire internet followed by mass protests against Feds being Feds and our White House using that to turn our country into a police state. Oh, and right during celebrations of LGBTQ+ people our “leadership” rolled back rights on said people mainly to target Transgender folks. And we are barely half-way through June.
So JOIN US for the newly declared DEFCON 201 ANTONYMOUS ZONE as we celebrate Pride as it originally was, a riot! We have a great number of talks and special guests representing the LGBTQ+ community, featuring those who are hackers that identify as queer. This will also include the usual DEFCON 201 insanity of hacking, drinking, eating and being in New Jersey.
For those catching us on Twitch, DEFCON 201 will be using Tiltify to raise funds for The Trevor Project, an American non-profit organization founded in 1998 focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. The organization looks to fulfill their mission through four strategies: provide crisis counseling to LGBTQ+ young people thinking of suicide, offer supportive counseling and a sense of community to young LGBTQ+ people in order to reduce suicide, educate young people and adults who interact with young people on LGBTQ+ competent suicide prevention, and advocate for laws and policies that will reduce suicide among LGBTQ+ young people.

Pre-Show :: Q&A for Coded Bias :..> In celebration of Juneteenth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juneteenth), we at DEFCON 201 will screen the Trailer and Q&A of Coded Bias! When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that most facial-recognition software misidentifies women and darker-skinned faces, as a woman of color working in a field dominated by white males, she is compelled to investigate further. What she discovers drives her to push the US government to create legislation to counter the far-reaching dangers of bias in a technology that is steadily encroaching on our lives. Centering the voices of women leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected, Coded Bias asks two key questions: what is the impact of Artificial Intelligence’s increasing role in governing our liberties? And what are the consequences for people stuck in the crosshairs due to their race, color, and gender?

The Basics of Live Sound: Setup, Acoustical Considerations, EQ and Feedback :..>This discussion will cover the basics of a live sound setup and dive into more specifics relating to EQ and Feedback prevention. Practical applications of EQ within examples of confined and non confined spaces go hand in hand with feedback prevention in terms of noting the acoustic design of a given room.

What components he uses and techniques. mBlade will also tell a few stories from his experience at DC26 and what he has planned for the future.
:..>Bio: DEFCON Furs is a 501c3 non-profit group that organizes events and parties at DEF CON for members of the infosec community that share an interest in the furry fandom. Our purpose is to promote, support, and advance the idea that we should be free to hack our own lives in a safe and supportive environment. Our focus is on education, organizing and providing support for individuals and groups that promote creating and owning a life and identity that is yours.
DEFCON Furs started as a room meetup for furries that regularly attended the DEF CON hacker conference. As word spread within the community, it turned out more furries were attending DEF CON than what could fit in a small hotel room. So “DEFCON Furs” as an event was produced in 2017 in a dedicated public suite where everyone at DEF CON, furry or otherwise, could come party, network, chill, work on challenges, and learn about DEF CON and the interesting people that make up the attendees. You can think of us like a mini-furry convention that is part of the DEF CON madness.
mBlade has been involved with the furry fandom since 2012, suiter since 2013, LED suiter since 2014, and business owner of Made2Glow since 2017. He designed and built his own systems. Everything is self taught.
SincX has been a furry since 2015 and a maker since the early 90’s. His fursona is Cyberpup Eigen — think a Sony Aibo ERS-110 that grew up. He has been slowly building the parts to embody Eigen, making use of RGB LEDs, Arduinos, various sensors, and Wifi chips. His aim is to create an outfit that reacts to both his movements and commands, as well as those of the furries and folks around him.
