Today the 24 Chaos Communication Congress (24C3) the annually hacker meeting organized by the Chaos Computer Club started in Berlin. Here you can find lots of inspiring talks, cool workshops and interesting people. Hacking (in the broadest sense), making, privacy and politic issues and many other topics are covered. The theme"Volldampf voraus" (German for "full steam ahead") is inspired by the retrofuture steam punk genre and you can see at some place of the conference related accessories.
As usually I am mainly hanging out at the OpenBSD booth and am frequently visiting talks and workshops. I will report about some selected stuff in the next days. There are live streams of the talks if you want to watch them yourself and the videos will be available for download some month after the congress.
