🚄 On my way to #35c3. See you in Leipzig, hackers!
J'ai bien cru entendre qu'il y en avait 70 au total. Très différentes cela dit, dans leur conception, leur ampleur et leurs effets (ceux voulus et ceux pas forcément anticipés)
Exemple d'effet de bord dans les systèmes impliquant de la notation réciproque: les participants mettent de mauvaises notes à des gens qu'ils ne connaissent pas, pour que leur entourage soit comparativement mieux noté...
(I arrived there 20mn early and the room was already nearly packed)
Fun fact: SiliVaccine uses a scan engine very similar to the one developed by... Trend Micro
So, to sum it up: SiliVaccine is using a Trend Micro component, is actively hiding that fact, has strange whitelisting pratices and was sent with a malware to a journalist. And the talk was very entertaining :D
OMG this 1km long waiting line O_o Should have known all these people are waiting to buy the #35c3 T-shirts & zippers. I'll never get this year's hoodie :(
On stage now at #35c3, Robert Tibbo, Hong-Kong lawyer for Snowden & the refugees who sheltered him, describing harassment & intimidation from HK authorities against him & the refugees. Itw [DE] here https://t.co/Q9ghHQGbO4
Vanessa, one of the refugees, appears via videoconference and asks why is Canada delaying its decision re: asylum requests #35c3
Q: If you could go back in time, would you help Snowden?
A: I always say 'yes'. I wanted to help him.
Next talk: 'Smart Home, Smart Hack' 😬 https://t.co/4Mz7lYIscS
Thr room is fully packed. Looks like a lot of people love the idea of hacking a lightbulb :D #35c3
So it's quite technical, but as far as I understand, it is possible to explore a network by infecting the update to a smart lightbulb's firmware with a trojan. The room applauded ;)
They did some testing during the Italian election, to study the impact of one variable (political "likes") on FB newsfeeds. Depending on your political inclination, you get more pictures or more texts, for instance #35c3 #fbTREX

FWIW the ' Was Leckeres' aka ' Something Delightful' cocktail is actually delightful 😎
Hope it'll help me to forget that tomorrow I have to travel back to a country where the main topics of debate are Le Monde Magazine's cover and Jeanne Calment 😑
