RFID tags, which could be purchased by the participants on the congress. The 1000 available tags were used - if actiated and registered - in some sort of 3D modeling real time monitoring and the data of the participants in this experiment will be released for public data mining, free to everybody. All software developed to run this project was free and open source.

drone lecture at the 23c3. impressive.

CCC-Sputnik is the first public appearance of the Open Source Project OpenBeacon.org and every attendant of the 23C3 is warmly invited to take part in this realtime in-building location tracking system. The CCC-Sputnik project intends to demonstrate the actual possibilities and threats of tracking and data mining with the RFID technology.

 

The transmitting device is a small 36x36mm pcb, powered by a coin cell. A Nordic RF Chip and a PIC microcontroller are used to control the 2.4GHz RF communication and a red LED indicates the transmitting periods. The device also provides a touch sensor in the upper right corner for further interaction possibilities.

 

There will be 1000 Sputnik devices available for the expected 3000 guests at the conference. Each device will transmit its unique id. The transmitted signals will be collected by up to 25 RFID base stations within the congress building and transferred to a centralized server via Ethernet.

 

Every tag has its serial number printed on the back side. This number can be connected to further information within a Wiki page. The owner of a tag has the possibility to add some personal data like name, status (speaker, angel, visitor, police) or inventory, which will be visible with the corresponding tag for all other attendants.

 

In order to make this project attractive to hackers, the Sputnik hardware schematics and firmware source code will be published on the first day of the event, enabling hackers to enhance/replace the existing firmware, and to add new applications such as peer-to-peer communication between multiple Sputniki.

 

A server based software is evaluating and estimating the positions of each Sputnik based on its signal strength, occurrence and position of the receiving base station. There will be different transmission power levels to increase the accuracy of the position calculation. The data and a simple visualisation will be accessable via a IP address which will be announced at the first conference day. This means that everyone has access to all data. Feel free to improve the algorithm of position calculation and visualisation with your own ideas!

 

CCC-Sputnik can be purchased for 10EUR inside the 23C3 at the CCC-Sputnik table. There will also be a lecture about Sputnik on the first day in 'Saal 2' at 2:00 pm. We hope to see lots of you there and your tags on the screen!

An active RFID tag available from the sputnik project www.openbeacon.org at the 23c3. I think next year they should combine it with the entrance wrist band. ;-)

Going for long solo walks without any specific destination during Coronavirus pandemic.

This is BCC (Berlin Congress Center), where Chaos Communications Congress took place for 23C3 in 2006, my first visit to Berlin.

Having fun with your lease. No, this is not me, and I won't tell you who it is. Except, he says, you're a girl and would like to date him.

Aaron Swartz back left, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, front right.

 

A dinner with a variety of Internet openness activists in a Persian restaurant in Stockholm, Jan 7, 2007. Many had attended the Chaos Communications Conference, 23C3, in Berlin just before. I have tears in my eyes when uploading this picture upon knowing that Aaron Swartz, 26, just hanged himself in Brooklyn:

Aaron is now dead, Gottfrid is in detention in a Swedish jail, the guy in front of/to the left of Aaron has recieved his PhD in computer science since the picture was taken.

 

About a year ago (Feb 2012) I wrote in my IDG/Computer Sweden column about Aaron Swartz's heroic action to liberate academic knowledge and the legal case where U.S. prosecutors were determined to destroy him:

The Berlin Congress Center @ night.

------------------------------------------------

The Berlin Congress Center and the associated "Haus des Lehrers" was build 1961 to 1964 by the Bauhaus follower Hermann Henselmann.

A girl and her boyfriend (I suppose) at the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress. They looked so full of love that I _had_ to ask her if I could take a photo, and to my surprise she said yes (while he, obviously, said nothing). Thanks again!

Die Kamera-Dame hält sich im Hintergrund und filmt unauffällig. Grund genug, sie mal zu flickrn.

Getting rid of almost everything I own to move out of the apartment I lived in for 23 years.

Lots of conference wristbands!

Jan Michael Hess is a guest at the HD Digital TV show called Blog TV in Tokyo on 01.12.06. He talks about the 23rd Chaos Communication Congress (23c3) to be held in Berlin from 27 to 30 December 2006. The 23c3 is organised by the Chaos Computer Club and is Europe's most important hacker convention.
