AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 CONS presented at Showmecon 2014

by Jayson E Street ,

Summary : This is a talk on perspectives.
Hackers, and hacking, are perceived differently around the world and, in turn, some view our community and what we do with different eyes than ours. I believe most reports/papers about that topic are skewed and never give a quite accurate global image. It’s all about perspectives, and these are what I will explore in this talk.
Being a foreign hacker attending a con, or delivering an engagement, in an alien land often led to unexpected situations that I will also recount.
I am not only looking to enlighten and entertain attendees with this talk, but also to have them take a step back and look at the big picture, at what they are part of; a global community that spreads beyond borders and continents.
