Brenno's own adventures with the Dutch transportation card.

Henk Krol showed a medical system's security, a system considered to be "Top Notch Security", hinged on a (shared) password consisting of 5 numbers.

He also talks about the Dutch Responsible Disclosure procedure and what is wrong with it, including examples such as Hans Scheuder who found a flaw in Habbo Hotel.

Ilyam saw his little brother and sister taken away by the Child Protection Services by accident and decided to film it and go public with it.

Indigo - system for registering people immigrating to the netherlands. Contains markers like "You are ready to be removed".

Russian Activist fled to the Netherlands after he was let out of jail. Here he got cought in a system named 'Indigo' which is used by the immigration service. One of the flags this system can set on people is 'you are ready to be removed'.

Doing the Lights on OHM2013. (shownotes donated by HobbyBob)

During the interview i mention the LOC controller. The LOC controller was designed by Bob from Bitlair Hackerspace in Amersfoort, The Netherlands.

Here you can find all the info on the controller:

My username is hobbybob there, so if you have any questions just ask me in a pm. It is good habit that you introduce yourself on the forum, this will get you more credits when you start asking questions. Just introduce yourself, what you want to built and what you already have done/tried in the past.

Ohh and BTW i sound a bit dull because i was very tired. As the Light team, we worked from 9AM to 3AM every day during OHM to make the experience a colorful one for everyone!

We hope you enjoy(ed) our effort and start building cool stuff yourself !

If you want to make your own LOC controllers, LED effects or Lasers i am very interested to know. You can mail me: hobbybob at bitlair dot nl

hpr1298 :: Recording for HPR using Audacity

Released on 2013-07-24 under a CC-BY-SA license.

The almost failsafe short of it. Use "alsamixer" to boost all recording volumes on main pulse and all cards (e.g. "alsamixer -c 0"). Start Audacity, edit -> preferences, stay in the "device" submenu, don't bother with the "recording" submenu. For each of the "Hosts" (alsa/jack), try all "Device"s under the "Recording" tab, start speaking, notice volume (or not and try the next one)

hpr1260 :: Interview with GMC about OHM 2013

Released on 2013-05-31 under a CC-BY-SA license.

OHM2013 is a five day outdoor international camping festival for hackers and makers, and those with an inquisitive mind. On 31st July 2013, 3000 of those minds will descend upon on an unassuming patch of land, at the Geestmerambacht festival grounds, 30km north of Amsterdam. We are interrupted by Nick Farr, who will tell us a bit about Hackers on a Plane, who organise a trip from North America to Europe to participate in this event.

hpr1239 :: HPR Saturday Sessions: What is hacking?

Released on 2013-05-02 under a CC-BY-SA license.

Nido is joined by dude-man, Epicanis, and artv61 to discuss how one could or should define "Hacker" and "Hacking", particularly in reference to the "Hackers" that Hacker Public Radio episodes are intended to be "of interest to". Unfortunately, all participants seemed to be largely in agreement with each other, so there isn't enough contention to make the discussion dramatic. Listeners may find the discussion insightful anyway, and we do come up with some suggestions and ultimately encourage everyone to be a lot more public about using the words "hacker" and "hacking" as much as possible outside the context of criminal and computer-programming activity until outdated dictionaries finally update their definitions.

Although Nido deserves the credit for Saturday Sessions, recording, cleanup, and editing of today's session was done by Epicanis, so if the sound sucks it's all his fault and not Nido's. Same goes for these show notes.
