Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"I decided to camp out in the Uber Haxor track today as a friend of mine was presenting a paper. The most memorable of the talks were Palm Data Protection by Adam Bresson and 8-bit redux: Microcontroller hacking by Phil King."

"The Palm Data Protection talked about the potential problems of having your Palm have infrared networking turned on, and how it can be a pathway to hacking. Most of the problems have to do with the simplicity of Palm OS. An interesting talk that anybody with a Palm should review when it makes it onto the Defcon media site."

"8-bit redux : Microcontroller hacking was a great talk. I learned something from Phil about how to present, if you can make the talk FUN, people will really respond to it. I enjoyed this talk a whole lot and I mention it down below in the Grothe Awards section."
