32C3 – My personal video list

Hi there,

After quite a long time of silence (*cough* Sorry about that) I think I can write a new post.

At the end of last year I was at the 32C3. That is the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress. This year about 12000 nice people got together and captured the Congress Center in Hamburg for four days. Apart from the giant program of talks (which I will talk about in a second) the ‚main‘ part of the congress is the opportunity to meet other peopel and have a blast of a time. I managed to meet a lot of nice people and I learned soo much during the time that I will need some time to fully sort that in my mind.

But back to the talks. This year I (again) volunteered as an Angel. These angels are the helpers that take shifts and do all the various jobs that need to be done to get the congress running. That starts at manning the bars or the cashier desk, controlling the access to the congress area at the entries, sorting empty bottles in the storage area but also range to announcing the speakers at the talks or operating the cameras which film the talks. This last one is a task which I did for the first time this year. I had lots of fun and learned some basic stuff about image composition and tracking speakers on stage. The talks I helped filming are also annotated in the list below.

All the talks are available at media.ccc.de and the following list just shows my personal favorites. There are still some vidoes which I didn’t get to watching these are still missing from my list.

As I said there are still lots of talks to be watched. I will probably post a second list then.
