@bigmac That’s irresponsible. One should never handle firearms when drunk.

The panel is of course going way over time. Thinking about how I need to change my plans for recording some audio material.

Daydreaming about the judicious use of the FN SCAR-H assault rifle. For precisely no particular reason whatsoever.

I see that @bigmac will be tweeting much of this panel under the hashtag (i.e. the wrong person’s hashtag). Follow him.

@nfFrenchie @kcarruthers Ah well, it’s an amusing presentation anyway. Much laughter in the room.

via TweetDeck in reply to nfFrenchie

“Create a spare kid just in case the first one fucks up and gets a criminal record you can give them a new ID.”

via TweetDeck

We are now hearing how to create “shelf babies”, like a shelf company.

via TweetDeck

@kcarruthers It was at DefCon, but the new thing is how to also create birth certificates.

“Are You Dead Yet? Find Out In The Database Of The Dead” forbes.com/sites/lisabrow…

via TweetDeck

“So now that someone’s dead, how do you get their money?”

via TweetDeck

Excellent, we now know how to fraudulently create death certificates.

via TweetDeck

@voltagex Excellent. Saves us having to kill people, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to voltagex

Mr Rock keeps abbreviating “funeral director” as “fun director” and I think this may be a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck

Hint for parents: Don’t get greedy, don’t kill more than one kid, ‘cos a second kid dying will always be a case for a coroner.

via TweetDeck

The ~1 million doctors in the US can just register themselves for access to EDRS.

via TweetDeck

The US Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS) is “very handy when there’s a mass local fatality,” apparently.

@dkalintsev Yep, that was pretty much the angle of the whole thing.

@dkalintsev Sure, but that’s not the point that Jorm was making. And I was just noting that it was a variety of things.

@Beaker To be fair to the wonderful Mr Jorm, that was my editorialising, not his words.

Look, @Beaker, all this stuff will be fixed with the Internet of Things (IoT), right? Right? Um, hello? twitter.com/Beaker/status/…

Actually, David Jorm’s message to the hackers is that if you look at SDN you’ll find all manner of “interesting” things to explore.

via TweetDeck

Shorter David Jorm, as far as I can tell: SDN is fucked and we’re all doomed.
