I'm an author of the book “Dissecting the hack: The F0rb1dd3n Network” plus creator of the site
http://dissectingthehack.com. I've also spoken at DEFCON, DerbyCon, UCON & at several other ‘CONs
& colleges on a variety of Information Security subjects. My life story can be found on Google under
“Jayson E. Street”. I'm a highly carbonated speaker who has partaken of Pizza from Beijing to Brazil.
I do not expect anybody to still be reading this far but if they are please note I was chosen as
one of Time’s persons of the year for 2006. Specialties:I hold and am current with.

PS He will need to borrow a laptop, as all he was carrying at the time was a bottle of Pepsi (no
surprises there, then).
Format is usually two talks: a primary 1 hour (ish) and,
a secondary 30 minutes (ish).
Talks start at 19:30, but we have the room from about
18:30 to 23:00.
Typically our programme has a technical talk (~1 hr) and lighter talk (~30 min).
Once or twice a year we have a "Lightning Talk" format, with shorter
talks up to ~15 minutes, with anyone who wants to speak on the night.
The qualifications for speakers are simple, have a subject of interest
to fellow technical & InfoSec people. The subject can be on technical
or security issues, social interaction with technology, based on the
current events, or just something entertaining to our attendees.
As a speaker you can be an expert, a student, someone learning a new
area, maybe a regular speaker on the conference circuit, but we also
love to have new & occasional speakers.

You are very welcome to propose running activities other than talks, such

We also welcome occasional company pitches, to sell or recruit, but to regulate
the frequency of these we ask you to buy a round of drinks. Also please
discuss with Major Malfunction or Tony beforehand!
