Hackers vs. Disasters Part 2

Published by Michael Schearer
"Hackers vs. Disasters Part 2" as delivered by RenderMan at DEFCON 17 on Saturday, July 31, 2009. We as hackers are a unique breed of human. We look at the world as a puzzle to solve in everything we do. We can come up with the most extraordinary solutions to problems under the most extraordinary circumstances. However though, we are the first to admit that without technology, many of us are rather useless. Do we have what it takes to think outside the box if the internet and technology suddenly went away? Society in general is becoming more and more dependent on technology, what skills are likely to be missing or forgotten in the event of a major cataclysm? Many of us could survive for short term disasters, but what about long term, society rebooting events? Could we be useful in rebuilding society by taking steps to preserve useful knowledge?
