The hacker in the fun house mirror (A talk on skewed perspectives)

This is a talk on perspectives. Hackers, and hacking, are perceived
differently around the world and, in turn, some view our community and
what we do with different eyes than ours. I believe most
reports/papers about that topic are skewed and never give a quite
accurate global image. It’s all about perspectives, and these are what
I will explore in this talk. Being a foreign hacker attending a con,
or delivering an engagement, in an alien land often led to unexpected
situations that I will also recount. I am not only looking to
enlighten and entertain attendees with this talk, but also to have
them take a step back and look at the big picture, at what they are
part of; a global community that spreads beyond borders and
continents. My hope is that the contents of this talk will circulate
wider than just Con attendees so family, friends and co-workers get a
better understanding of who we are, what we stand for, and what that
thing is that brings us all together globally under one banner.
