Let's think about drinking presented at bsideswellington 2017

by Petra Smith,

Summary : How often do you think about drinking? OK, but how often do you _really_ think about drinking? Why we do it, and how it influences our lives? Drinking is a part of our culture: if you live in New Zealand, if you work in tech, if you participate in the infosec community, if you've ever been a student, whether you drink or not, alcohol influences the ways we all work, relax and interact, often in ways we don't even realise.
Petra, an information security consultant at SafeStack and former actual historian of drinking, will give you a closer look at our drinking culture, its unintended consequences, and what we can do as individuals and as a community to make our workplaces, social spaces and events better for everyone by changing the way we think about drinking.
