I presented Thunderstrike at 31C3, the 31st Chaos Communication Congress, in Hamburg, Germany. Twelve thousand hackers show up for four days of presentations, demonstrations and hacking.
Laura Poitras was one of the celebrities at the congress. She gave several talks on the state of journalist crypto and the difficulty of getting sources to use it.
One hackerspace brought an awesome barbot with steampunk styling and an iPad interface. The Analog Zone had a sticker exchange bin for decorating your laptop. We dropped off a few NYC Resistor stickers.
In the Hexagon club we tried the Tschunk beverage. After a few years in largely smoke-free NYC, the heavy cigarette smoke was a bit of a surprise. But it did make the laser show a little more impressive.
I gave my Thunderstrike talk in saal 1 to a fairly full audience. It was quite an experience for my first time at CCC and I'm really glad that I finally went. Now I need to find another project to present for next year...
