Ye Olde Hacking presented at CircleCityCon 2017

by Johnny Xmas,

Summary : Since the Second Industrial Revolution, technology has been advancing at a rate beyond anyone’s estimates. That means us old folks got to hack a whole lot of awesome stuff in our short lifetimes!. Here, Johnny Xmas will deliver one of his famous “When I Was Your Age” rants, this time aimed at the 1980’s and 90’s, the rise of the Internet, and the explosion of the hacker community that happened back then, just as it is happening now. Topics covered will probably include cable TV piracy, wardialing, mainframe hacking, “Hackers Vs. Crackers”, the mere difficulty of Internet & computer access, and how so many of the “modern” web exploits you use today are really decades old.
