6:30 - 7:20 Security News from Black Hat and Defcon | John Sawyer

It's summertime and the living should be easy. But not for John Sawyer. He has been quite busy over the last few months. John learned about some new security threats at the Black Hat and Defcon gatherings. He brought this knowledge back to the University of Florida and looked to see if the University might be affected (this is his job after all). Come to the meeting this month to hear about these threats from an expert in the field of Information Security.

*Note the new location for this month.* Virtually Cuban has been having problems with their AC system so we are going to meet at The Laboratory this month.

7:20 - 8:00 Open discussion, meet and greet someone new

Location: 
The Laboratory, 818 W. University Ave, Gainesville, FL 32601

New Venue is nice

I liked the new venue (The Laboratory). The location is good. The Air Conditioning worked. :)

The owner seemed genuinely glad we were there. Parking was a little confusing at first... additional parking in the next parking area behind (north of) The Laboratory's location.

The food smelled great (I didn't eat anything). Maybe someone else could comment.

The drink special was $2 PBR on draft. PBR is surprisingly good served ice cold in a chemistry beaker. They also had beer from Gainesville's local Swamp Head Brewery on draft!

Tales from Black Hat, DEFCON, and the Security B-Sides were very cool (thanks John!).

2010-08-18 Meeting links from John Sawyer

Here's all the things I could think of off the top of my head that I
said I'd send to people regarding the cons, books, talks, blogs, etc.
At the very bottom is the link to the privacy talk I mentioned to a
few of you.

If you have any questions, comments, etc., let me know.

Thanks for coming out to the presentation. I had a lot of fun and
enjoyed the questions and conversations afterwards.
