OpenTech 2015

When: Saturday 13th June 2015. Doors open 10:00am
Where: ULU "Student Central" (ULU), Malet St, London
Cost: £5 on the door.




OpenTech will be 10 years old in 2015.

We'll be back on June 13th 2015, for the usual mix of technology, experience and everything else. Book your place now, while we firm up the schedule.

We've still got a call for talks open. If there's something you'd like to hear about at OpenTech next year, we'd love to hear what you'd like to hear about, and we'll see what we can do.

Some of us are going to the:


Electromagnetic Field Camp - Bletchley, 29th - 31st August

"Imagine a camping festival with a power grid and high-speed internet access; a temporary village of geeks, crafters, and technology enthusiasts that's lit up by night, and buzzing with activity during the day. Over a thousand curious people will descend on our friendly open space to learn, share, and talk about what they love.

Over a long weekend, you can expect to see a huge variety of talks across three stages, a slew of workshops, as well as music, games, and installations dotted around the site.

At previous events we've heard talks about everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lock picking, computer security to crocheting, and quadcopters to brewing.

We're inviting attendees to set up their own villages -- camps within the camp -- where like-minded people can camp together and put on their own activities. Our hard-working team of volunteers will supply you with power and internet to your tent.

Our internet connection -- last time it was 380 megabits, this time we're aiming for much more -- will be beamed in from a datacenter nearby, and distributed to your tent by (hopefully) the most reliable conference WiFi network you'll ever use, housed in a series of specially repurposed high-tech portaloos.

You'll also be able to take advantage of our well-stocked bar selling great beer, cider, and soft drinks at distinctly non-festival prices. Sadly we can't get hold of the motorway bridge that housed the bar at our last site.

When you arrive, you'll be issued with an attendee badge unlike any you've seen before. Our badge is a full-blown Arduino-powered computer with an LCD screen and wireless connectivity. During EMF, you'll be able to view the schedule of talks on your badge. After the event, instead of sitting in a drawer, it's fully reprogrammable to do whatever you want. If you don't know how, you can learn at the event!

What makes Electromagnetic Field unique is that everything is created by attendees like you. The entire event -- stewarding, water, electricity, internet, stages, toilets, and the bar -- is organised by a dedicated team of volunteers, and everyone who turns up does their part to make the event an amazing place to be for a weekend. We're a non-profit organisation, so every penny you spend on your ticket goes towards making the event happen.

Expect to run into spork-making workshops, bottle rocket launches, high altitude balloon releases, ad-hoc music installations and so much more.

We hope we've given you a taste of what EMF is all about, but you have to be there to experience it all. Tickets are on sale now -- if you miss out on it this year, our next festival won't be until 2016.

If you want to get involved, you can propose a talk, workshop, or installation, or join our team of volunteers to help build an amazing festival."

Nearest Tube station is Leicester Square

Google Maps & StreetView 101 St Martins Lane


This will be a free event, but you will need to register your intention to attend, so that we can keep within the capacity limits of the venue.

A CryptoParty is *not* meant to be an event simply for technical experts, it aims to educate journalists, campaigners, political activists and the public in general about the basics of securing the privacy of their internet and mobile phone communications. Learn how to protect your confidential data, the identities of your contacts and whistleblower sources, your trade secrets and intellectual property, your financial transactions or just the seemingly mundane day to day aspects of your personal life.

Many of the people who need to use such tools and techniques the most, do not do so, because of their perceived difficulty and the tendency of technical experts to get side tracked into jargon and theoretical details, which are not relevant to most beginners.

That said, nobody is expert in all the tools and techniques that are available and which may be necessary, depending on the motivation and resources of the adversaries you face.

We would like to do hands-on workshops or give talks on:

  1. Introduction
  2. Workshops
    • Pretty Good Privacy PGP / GnuPG / GPGTools Thunderbird with Enigmail
    • Tor Browser Bundle
    • TrueCrypt disk / volume / USB device encryption
    • Pidgin / Adium with Off The Record OTR chat
    • Anonymity Bring & Swap
  3. 10 minute lightning talks

UPDATE: 19th March 2012:!/emfcamp/status/181877952458395649

It's official: Electromagnetic Field 2012 will be held at Pineham Park, Milton Keynes from Fri 31st August to Sun 2nd September!

11:00 PM - 19 Mar 12

Plans for a mainland European style e.g. Chaos Computer Club or Hacking At Random, "hacker camp", at an open air venue this summer, are starting to come together here in the United Kingdom.

The venue is not yet arranged, as the organisers are trying to assess the number of people willing and able to attend and how much they are willing to pay for their phun.

The target date is provisionally the August Bank Holiday (Monday 27th August 2012) weekend, provided that a suitable venue can be found.

Hopefully this Electromagnetic Field Camp will be a Temporary Autonomous Zone of relief from the propaganda and repression of dissent, which the London 2012 Olympic Games have already started to inflict on us.

Not for Profit, Company Limited by Guarantee

Electromagnetic Field Ltd. is a company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales with company number 07788466.

Registered office: 2 Ockendon Mews, London N1 3JL

The establishment of such a not for profit company, without individual financial liability, should hopefully allow for a larger event to be organised than previous small scale events in the UK like Access All Areas or DNScon or BrumCon etc.

Security B-Sides London, Wednesday 25th April 2012, Barbican, London

List of scheduled talks:

Free registration via Eventbrite, but with the annoyingly intrusive mandatory demand for a twitter handle (200 free tickets gone in 90 minutes)

London Hackspace are hosting a "Hack the Flag" contest on Saturday 15th October 2011.

Hopefully this will be as educational as as much fun as the DEFCON Capture The Flag contests, although this one will obviously be on a smaller scale.


OpenTech 2010

11th September 2010
from UKUUG and friends
Sponsored by

OpenTech 2010

When: Saturday 11th September 2010
Where: ULU, Malet St, London.
Cost: £5 on the door.
Currently: Book your ticket online now

OpenTech 2010 is an informal, low cost, one-day conference on slightly different approaches to technology, politics and justice. Talks by people who work on things that matter, guarantees a day of thoughtful talks leading to conversations with friends.

This one day conference is always packed out, and so you now need to register in advance, although you can actually then pay your £5 on the door.

There will be no wifi available to paying attendees. We strongly suggest that attendees leave their laptops at home. Speakers will receive details of what is available to them, but are similarly advised not to rely on the wireless network.

Does anyone fancy actually giving a lightning talk or presentation either individually or as a London 2600 group project ?

Want to offer a talk?

We're very much "Open" to suggestions for additional talks. presentations, discussion panels or technology demonstrations.

We'll be trying to fit in as many talks (and lightning presentations) as possible, so the shorter you can make yours, the better (15 minutes is good for a talk; workshops can be up to 2 hours). Alternatively, if you have an idea for a panel discussion, or a tutorial or workshop, or anything else that's vaguely in keeping with the theme of the event, then we also can't wait to hear from you. Remember, stories and experience mean your talk is more likely to be remembered.

By popular demand, the next unofficial mid-month meeting will be on Saturday 21st August 2010 from 15:00. at the usual pub the Nell of Old Drury near Covent Garden.

eth-0 2010 event report


After a drive through some very nice looking Dutch countryside, we come across the first signs of something unusual. There's a pair of lights and what looks like stone walling sat by a little entrance way. A small signed marked "Eth-0" gives away that we're at the correct place. The lack of crowds indicates it's a more intimate affair than CCC or HAR. There's a small drop-off car park next to the single camping field. We park up, show our tickets and then unload in the direction of the camp site. There's a large marquee, a couple of network points and most tents are already pitched. We find a pitch fairly easily at the other end of the field and quickly pitch the tent. We're right next to the power point so I quickly dispense with the twin+earth and just run a small extension lead into the tent. Moments later I run a Cat 5 out the dist switch and we have power and ethernet to the tent. Unlike HAR there's no dark fibre run back to AMS-IX but a wifi antenna just outside the camp gives a respectable 108MB link to the 100M backhaul. With the tent up the heavens open and it proceeds to piss it down for the rest of the day and most of the night. A quick retreat is made back to the lounge where we can have a toastie and get on the web while looking at large crows hovering overhead. There's a single talk venue with some talks in Dutch and others in English. Most of the week is spent either in the lounge or in the talks. It's certainly a much simpler affair to CCC or HAR, fewer people, fewer talks, fewer gadgets, light shows, etc. More of a week relaxing in the Dutch countryside than anything else but still a good week is to be had. They tell me last year there were only about 80 people there, so it's certainly grown some. I can see Eth-0 growing to take up the gap between CCC and HAR, et al. The closing ceremony also reflects the smaller scale. A simple "thanks and see you again" was pretty much all before we grabbed laptops and hit the road. The beauty of the location is that it's only about 100 miles of detour to swing by the location of HAR at Vierhouten and have dinner at the outstanding Novice restaurant!

The Next Hope, Hotel Pennsylvania, New York City, July 16-18, 2010

Preregistration is now open for The Next HOPE, our eighth hacker conference that threatens to be the biggest and best of them all. Over 100 talks and panels, a huge hacker project area, games and activities of all sorts, and a wide range of hacker luminaries will all combine to make this yet another historical and memorable event. And it all takes place right smack in the middle of New York City on July 16, 17, and 18, 2010.

If you've never been to a HOPE conference, we strongly suggest wandering through the archives at to see some of what you've been missing. If you've never been to New York City, there is no better way to see it for the first time than with the excitement of one of the world's largest hacker conferences surrounding you.

Obviously, if you've already been to a HOPE conference, there's nothing we need to tell you as far as how cool and awesome this next one will be. In fact, we suspect you're already at the checkout page and haven't even read this far.

This year, our ticketing system has been modernized. It's now a whole lot more convenient and efficient. And while all ticket sales are final, the tickets themselves are transferable in case your plans change.

International technology & security conference. Four days of technology, ideological debates and hands-on tinkering.

On August 13-16, 2009 the 20th anniversary edition of the four-yearly Dutch outdoor technology-conference will take place near Vierhouten, NL.

When ?

Thursday August 13th - Sunday August 16th 2009

Where ?

't Frusselt 30
8076 RE Vierhouten,
The Netherlands.


Google Maps

The location (+52° 19′ 50.02″, +5° 49′ 27.98″) is near Vierhouten, a small settlement in the beautiful Veluwe area renowned for its culinary industry. The former socialist youth-camp de Paasheuvel provides some good old-fashioned Dutch gezelligheid. A variety of camping areas will cater to our broad range of camping and non-camping audience: varying from secluded spots in the foliage to larger fields for those of you who want to cluster together to form a village.

There is a train-station nearby, in Nunspeet. From there it is a 10-minute drive to the festival terrain.


UPDATE: it seems as if all tickets have been sold out, and they will not be selling any on the door.

About this blog

London 2600 meetings are similar to those held by 2600 groups around the world, and the other 2600 groups in the United Kingdom.

N.B. the quarterly 2600 magazine is now rarely available in London shops.

Everybody who is interested in computer and telecomms security and the impact of technology on society is welcome, from both sides of the fence, no matter what your age or level of skill and experience - nobody knows it all, no matter what they claim.

You could learn more at these free meetings than from months of study or investigation on your own, but this depends on what you are willing to share and contribute in return. We are mostly British and therefore somewhat shy in public, but it is easy to strike up a conversation with most of us.

London 2600 meet on the first Friday of each month, 6.30pm to 7.30pm initially, at the frront entrance of the Trocadero shopping centre, then on elsewhere.

The kinds of people who have attended over the last 25 years or so include:

"computer hackers, phone phreakers, cyberpunks, performance artists, systems administrators, cybergoths, military intelligence officers, mobi chippers, skip trashers, hacktivists, network gurus, anti-virus programmers, penetration testers, multimedia artists, internet entrepreneurs, newbies, cybercriminals, warez d00dz, old skool, movie script writers, 31337, civil liberties activists, lawyers, radio hams, students, cool hunters, wannabes, djs, corporate security professionals, academic researchers, privacy campaigners, journalists"

Usually up to 20 to 50 people attend each meeting, most of whom then participate in the rest of the evening/weekend activities.

Free Gary McKinnon - or at least try him in the UK, rather than extraditing him to the USA. Gary is accused of hacking in to over 90 US Military computer systems, including some in the Pentagon, National Security Agency, Army, Navy and Air Force, NASA, etc. for over 2 years. He is facing extradition to the USA, under the notorious Extradition Act 2003, without any prima facie evidence, rather than being tried in the UK. He could face a Guantanamo Bay style Military Tribunal and over 60 years in prison ! This case has dragged on now for over 9 years !

Free Babar Ahmad - another British (Muslim) IT worker from London, also facing extradition to the USA, also at risk of a Military Tribunal, facing terrorism charges not for running websites etc., relating to activities in Afghanistan and Chechnya, which were not illegal in the UK.

Not Getting Arrested in London

Now that the UK Government has enacted the draconian email and phone snooping RIP Act, widened the Terrorism Act 2000 and the Terrorism Act 2006 to suppress politically motivated computer hackers, and promoted mass technological surveillance of millions of innocent citizens, you have to *trust* the current Home Secretary John "not fit for purpose" Reid that your email is not being routinely monitored, and your mobile phone traffic data and location records are not being fed into some cruel automatic traffic pattern analysis program so as to add points to your electronic secret police dossier, through guilt by association.

Spy Blog's Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers mini-blog gives advice which is also relevant to London 2600 attendees, from both sides of the law, and the media.

Several people on their way to London 2600 meetings have fallen foul of the anti-terrorism hysteria which swept London after the terrorist bomb attacks of July 2005. You cannot really blame the general public and Police for being suspicious, if you bring along a mysterious looking bit of electronic equipment in your rucksack, with lots of wires, batteries and gaffer tape, no matter how innocent it really is.

However, none of us should tolerate Police behaviour and policies like those which resulted the arrest of David Mery, one of our respected long standing attendees. He was stopped, searched and arrested on a Tube station, and his flat was searched and computers and other equipment seized, for no good reason at all. He was lucky that he was not shot and killed by the Police. See Innocent in London" and "Techie and terrorist behavioural profiles are the same"


If you are arrested, then get some legal advice from a firm of solicitors before you say or admit to anyhing whatsoever to the Police e.g. top rated human rights specialists Bindmans & Partners - 020 7833 4433 or Kaim Todner (who represent London hacker Gary McKinnon) - 020 7353 6660 (24 hour Police Station callout)
