Few technologies have impacted society to the degree that radio has. Radio plays a vital part in almost every human being's life in one way or another. Most people are oblivious to how it works, what all is being sent out over the airwaves, and the privacy and security implications of these methods of communication. This talk aims to be a brief introduction to radio from a hacker's point of view.

The Fauzy Hour is an off the cuff talk / discussion / demo led by a person with knowledge of the subject matter.

Join Richard as he quickly covers the major tules in the Danger room, and the Major Rules for safety in the danger room. This is a critical subject, and if you spend any time in the Danger Room, you should attend at least one. This class will shift the specific days of the week it is held on to get as much coverage to the membership as possible.

A Crypto Party is a gathering to learn and discuss computer Cryptographic tools, privacy, first amendment rights, and responsible legal methods of using these tools. This is an "Explain it like I'm 5 years old" (ELI5) level course.

The motivation is to empower regular people to protect their private data in an era of widespread surveillance. If you want to go further than just info, bring a functional laptop.
