#33c3 day 4 update.

Got up really late because of yesterdays unofficial space talks, and we left for Copenhagen so I only had time for two talks, one on genetics in relation to personal identification and one on transhumanism, which ended up with an impromptu discussion in the halls about international politics and cultural differences, I love how the CCC is overflowing with interesting and accommodating people.

I will probably update my posts soon with links to the talks I attended, in case anyone else finds it interesting and/or would like to discuss the subjects.

The Transhumanist Paradox - by Xavier Flory

A late #33c3 day 3 update, the big one :)

I attended talks on how the protocols the HDMI standard is made up of (there's quite some legacy involved), the concept of a space elevator on the moon (which is technically feasible today) an introduction to ESAs moon ambitions, interstellar colonization, lasers in space and the distances and measuring methods involved in astronomy.
ll the space talks were one big block from 1830 to 2315, followed by a long chat with many of the speakers, which resulted in me getting to bed at 3 in the night :)

The Universe Is, Like, Seriously Huge - by Michael Büker
https://media.ccc.de/v/33c3-7861-the_universe_is_like_seriously_huge

Day 2 at the #33c3, today I attended talks on diverse topics such as data analysis at +CERN, geological timekeeping, the use of electronic voting machines in the US presidential elections, different kinds of censorship and content control in the EU and how international banking works.
My main (and most surprising) takeaways were these:

1: The 2016 US presidential vote (the actual act of people voting, saying nothing of the election in general) likely wasn't hacked in any significant way, but if someone had wanted to, it would have been surprisingly easy and unlikely to have been discovered by any existing measures.

2: International banking involves issues of timing and end-to-end connectivity, very similar to those involved in computer networking, but seems to have taken a much more manual approach to the issues than computer networking has, leaving international payments a slow and costly affair.

I am VERY much looking forward to tomorrow, which includes the bulk of the #33c3 space track lectures, among them one given by the general director of the +European Space Agency, ESA Johann-Dietrich Wörner.

Day 1 at the #33c3 , so far I've attended lectures on how national agencies (no one mentioned, no one forgotten) takes over websites to deliver malware to computers of people in other countries and the state of net neutrality in Europe.
I also got to visit behind the scenes of the Hamburg Miniature Wunderland, which was hugely interesting and a little bit claustrophobic :)

I think this is the 3rd generation of mealworms, at this point by far the biggest hassle is when the substrate becomes infested with moths, otherwise these little guys are a breeze to care for.
Also I'm beginning to experiment with ways to prepare them, some way of turning them into a patty-like form would open up a lot of recipes.

Cutting down on energy-intense meat (such as cow and pig) can also contribute to decreasing your resource footprint.
