Remember Remember

Hey, it's 2600.  Bring your gear and put on your silly hats, it's internet computer hacking time!

We have bitcoins, wimax, LEDs, ruby, and everything else you need to get your hack together.  Tonight's winner will take home a free sandwich, and be immortalized in the server logs of eternity.

2600 Meeting - September 2011

      The next 2600 meeting will take place at Theo's on Friday, September 2nd @ 7PM. Most folks missed the August meeting because they were attending BSides/Blackhat/Defcon in Las Vegas (and by attending, I mean getting blackout drunk and passing out in the hallways at the Rio.) Historically, the meeting just after Blackhat/Defcon is our busiest of the year.

Informal Agenda:
  • - BSidesPDX. Happening October 7th at the Jupiter hotel. We will go over the proposed talks.
  • - Post Vegas Debriefing. Discuss interesting talks or tell us your crazy Vegas stories.
  • - State of the Portland security scene: rejuvenating DC503 and RainSec.
Miscellaneous Notes:
  • - There is now a Portland 2600 twitter feed (@PDX2600). Follow it for real-time meeting notes.
  • - Is your company looking to fill an infosec position? Are you looking for a job? Check this out.

P.S. Hack the Planet.
    P.P.S. Brad Carter of the Phone Losers of America will be there. Or at least said I should go, so I assume he will. Here's a picture of him:

    March 2600 - New Location!

    The 2600 meeting for March will be the first at our new location: Theo's. After testing the water by holding half of our meeting there last month, we've been invited back by the owner. It's located right next to our old meeting place, has plenty of table space, power plugs, access to wifi, & reasonably priced food/drinks. The time has not changed, and our meeting will still be starting at 7 PM. If everything goes well tonight, we will email the magazine publishers to have them update the listed location.

    While we have a lot of love for Backspace (our previous venue), their shift to hosting more music shows has made holding a Friday night meeting very difficult.

    Some discussion points tonight will include:

  • 200k Android handsets infected with malware in 4 days.

  • B-Sides PDX?

  • Rainsec, a monthly meeting for information security professionals.

    If you have anything interesting to share, whether it's recent news or a project you're working on, please bring it up during the meeting!
  • March Forth

    2600 is here again, and for the first time, we are meeting by default at Theo's rather than getting kicked out of backspace when they feel like starting to set up for the show.

    Tonight, for one night only, our special guest Julian Assange will be pre-signing pre-copies of his pre-autobiography, and selling 10 dollar high-five photo ops.  Later, some of us may or may not be handing out some juicy 0day related to a certain company here in town.  We will also be running the first ever pwn2pwn contest starting at 9pm, so make sure to bring a laptop if you want to compete, and remove your wireless card if you don't.

    feb thing

    Infosec keeps on rolling. February's meeting is here. Maybe some discussion of android and/or app engine apps tonight. Also hacking. Backspace is closing down at 7 for a show, so after that I expect we will be moving to Theo's (sandwich shop next door) utill 8/9 or so, then the hackerspace (

    Weekly Brainsilo (hackerspace) open house is tonight (1/13) at 7 PM.

    Most of our regulars know about Brainsilo, as we frequently move the 2600 meeting there as the night progresses and backspace starts their music shows.

    Our weekly open house exists to give people an opportunity to come check out the space when there are other people there.

    We have wifi, comfy chairs, desks, a community library, a 70's era (now working) pinball machine, and lots of other electronic doo-dads and gizmos. Some folks are also working on a reprap type project.

    If you're interested in information security, hardware hacking, or just geeky stuff in general you'll have a good time.

    You can find more information on the website. We are located right off the yellow line MAX near the Rose Quarter. Please note that the entrance is in the Alleyway behind the building (Kerby Annex) at the stairs with the Brainsilo banner.

    Hope to see some of you there!

    Happy new year everyone! Typical meeting, same time same place. Tonight. Party starts around 6ish at backspace. When it gets noisy we will probably be moving to Theo's (the awesome sandwich shop next door), and later to the brainsilo hackerspace. As usual, bring any gear/code you want to break/showoff. See you all there!
