2018-08-12 (Su) DefCon 26

As I mentioned on 2 Cyborgs and a Microphone, I was at DefCon 26. I talked about an event at the biohacking village, but I didn't spend time talking about what I was doing most of the time. I was one of the biohacking village volunteers, so tasks like minding the door, talking through questions with people waiting in line, maintaining order, ushering and the like were my responsibility. In truth, all these tasks were just a way for me to get in touch with other biohackers and the bio-curious.

My main tasks were to stand outside the room where implants were being done and admit people when there was an open implanter. My role quickly expanded to answering questions from people passing by who were curious about the implants or the procedure. Many people intended to talk to an implanter about their particular questions but found that I was more than happy and capable of answering them.

Many of the questions were about how the implants could be used, but many were about the physical size and the IC within. It was easy enough to bring an injector out into the hallway so people could see the device and size.

The badge for the biohacking village was an impressive feat of engineering. It was microfluidics lab. The badge itself was capable of moving droplets around without moving parts so fluids could be mixed and portioned electronically.
