ToorCon is organzing ToorCamp 2009, first ever full-scale hacker camp in the United States, which takes place July 2nd-5th inside an abandoned Titan-1 Missile silo in Moses Lake, WA. mattdork shot a bunch of great photos of the missile silo.

Modeled after the camps in Holland and Germany, ToorCamp will focus on all of the technology topics that ToorCon has become famous for but will expand out into other areas of society. ToorCamp will offer 2 days of talks on many different topics — Security, Internet, Emerging Technologies, Hardware Hacking, and Privacy are just some of the areas we will be covering. ToorCamp will also feature 2 days of hands-on workshops on a multitude of different skills that you may have never found yourself interested in learning about before. Blacksmithing, Lock Picking, Orienteering, Logic Design, Archery — these are just a few of the topics you can expect.

Dan Tentler, one of our sys admins at Laughing Squid Web Hosting, is giving a talk at ToorCamp about “Peoplehacking 2.0 – Human information leakage, and buffer overflowing the brain”.

You can buffer overflow the human brain just as you would a rinky dink FTP program. You can identify if people are being evasive in responses and you can identify what emotions people are exhibiting based on their facial expressions and mannerisms.
