OK, I'm back to my blogosphere now :)

I was busy doing the first Hackers' Convention of India by the name "ClubHack 2007"

The event was on 9th of December 2007 @ International Convention Center, Pune

12 quality speakers shared their knowledge with people.

We saw a good crowd of technically smart people attending the event. The kind of interaction at the talks was really good.

We had a hard time collecting sponsors for the event because people thought the term
"HACK" in the event name might have mutilating effect on their brand names. Strange that biggies who understand the thing also think in same way :(

Anyway, to break the mindset of people we had senior police official attending the event. Our main member in panel discussion was Mr Sanjay Jadhav, Deputy Commissioner of Police who is currently heading state intelligence and was awarded as Cyber Cop in 2005.

Media was there to understand the whole scenario of hacking and ultimately gave a very good coverage. Here a few links.

Hope you all, who attended the event enjoyed it. We'll try to make it bigger and better in future

Lets make security a common sense
