Fake News

Who are the real hackers, and why most of the news about hackers are fake (snippet from my upcoming talk)…

By Eh’den Biber

Hi everyone

As you might have seen from my previous posts, I’ve been writing a long post called “the revolution”, which covers my journey into finding ways of communicating and connecting with my son, who have severe autism. I was about to post a new update to it – but then I stopped.

You see, in the last two years I’ve been planning to give a talk about the subject of substance abuse in the hackers’ community. This is a topic which has have HUGE implications for anyone who either is a hacker, working with a colleague who is a hacker, employing one, or planning to employ one. The reason the update to “the revolution” was delayed is because substances and their impact on non-ordinary states of consciousness was just too big for a written update.

And the good news is that thanks to it, I’m finally ready to give a talk on the subject. It would be lovely to share it with Peerlyst members, here in London, and will be looking for an event space for it. Also, I plan to share it in upcoming CONs because it’s probably the most interesting topic I’ve researched, and one with huge implications to many people who are reading it right now. Based on my experience, if you are reading it you’re either abuse substances or know a substance abuser. If you have an upcoming CON and wish me to talk on the subject, please contact me directly. I assure you that it’s going to be one of the most interesting talks you will have in your event.
