HubCare already has a million users. There’s a feeling of “Why don’t we already know about this?” around the table.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

HubCare has NICTA’s machine learning looking at all this data to identify potential children at risk.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I don’t yet know how much of this diagram HubCare has built yet. instagram.com/p/p7ul8uiFtD/

HubCare is already reading and writing to government databases. They’re coming out of stealth today, it seems.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

OK, thus is brilliant. They provide a portal for a child, unified ID, and govt services from immunisation to swimming lessons log in.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Next up, Ruby O’ Rourke, co-founder of HubCare, a new service to connect all the services needed by a child.

AWS’s ANZ chief Ed Lenta is introducing things, so far a standard “why cloud has benefits for ISVs” intro to what AWS does.

According to DFAT figures, Australia exports $807 million of IP a year, and around one third of that is software IP and licensing.

Sydney figures, recorded yesterday, are “the least worst of a bad pack”, says @jameslyne instagram.com/p/p7SDFaCFiH/

via Instagram

I’ll be posting all these statistics later too. Things like 47% of wi-fi networks in Las Vegas are completely open. Hospitality, y’see.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Out of the cities Lyne has warbiked, San Francisco has the worst level of old networks. 9% still run WEP, trivially crackable for years now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

It seems @jameslyne finds some of these wi-fi network names quite amusing. instagram.com/p/p7RTcxiFgs/

via Instagram

I am recording Lyne’s witty and informative presentation. If that recording is not mangled, I’ll post the whole thing somewhere.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Hence, Lyne is reviving wardriving as warbiking, and he’s now running though the kit on his Ethernet-enabled bike. Great presentation.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

The result, says Lyne, is that there’s a long tail of people who remain vulnerable to old and basic threats forever.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Lyne’s bugbear is that the security industry focuses on latest and greatest threats, gets bored and moves on, before most people hear of it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS
