---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Bill Ricker <bill.n1...@gmail.com> Date: Fri, Apr 6, 2018 at 4:08 PM Subject: Tech Meeting: Federico Live! GPS! Randomness with Radiation! To: Boston PM <boston...@mail.pm.org>, "Boston Perl Mongers (announce)" <boston-pm-annou...@pm.org> Next Meeting April 10th (2nd Tuesday) Federico Lucifredi / Hardware Hacking 101: time and randomness Abstract: Using the lowest amount of custom hardware and pouring Perl over everything as the glue binding it all, we create two minimalistic devices delivering a perfectly tuned network time source (synchronizing with a GPS satellite), and a naturally random entropy source (leveraging a Geiger tube’s measurement of natural background radiation). Location: MIT Building 51, Room 372, 2 Amherst Street, Cambridge, MA NOTE: Parking Alert. Recent changes in MIT Parking Dept web pages no longer allow un-permitted parking after-hours. So parking on-site is AT OWN RISK. And Construction Detour again too. See web for details. http://boston.pm.org/Calendar http://boston.pm.org/MIT%20Directions Boilerplate details Tech Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at MIT building E51, Sloan School Tang Center [not the other Tang building!] nearer to Kendall Sq than Mass Ave. (directions). Talk begins at 7:30. Refreshments in the hallway prior. RSVP for count encouraged but not required, to bill.n1...@gmail.com or Boston-PM list, by 4pm Tuesday. (NOTE: as of Fall 2017: we'r back to the squarer room 372 (first door after the partition), not the wider 376 (second door) that we had the last several years) -- Bill Ricker bill.n1...@gmail.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/n1vux _______________________________________________ Discuss mailing list Discuss@blu.org http://lists.blu.org/mailman/listinfo/discuss
