I'm Vito, I helped run DEF CON CTF from 2013-2017 as part of Legitimate Business Syndicate.
I like computer festivals, coffee, basic electronics, and CTF games of course.

"safety third" discourse Show more
"safety third" is a cute catchphrase I guess but it's bad and harmful
like yeah when it's a YouTube doing something obviously dangerous and short-sighted sure yuk it up
but now industrialists and their toadies are using "safety third" and you shouldn't trust them
1: “That’s our other rule,” Musk continues. “Safety third. There’s not even a Rule Number Two. But even though there’s nothing in second place, safety is not getting promoted to number two.” https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/elon-musk-the-architect-of-tomorrow-120850/

elixir's `String.valid?/1` that checks if a string is utf-8 only is cute
# check the tail if the head is utf-8
def valid?(<<_::utf8, t::binary>>), do: valid?(t)
# we're at the end, definitely utf-8
def valid?(<<>>), do: true
# head wasn't utf-8 and we're not at the end, definitely not utf-8
def valid?(_), do: false
glad I skilled up in binaries in the #35c3 ctf, solving problems I didn't attempt beforehand
On the way home from an amazing #35c3 and a wonderful time with friends in Berlin.
Thanks everyone who made it a great trip for me, with special thanks for Eat Sleep Pwn Repeat for running two CTF games (one that I did really well in), the Milliways crew for having a nice space to just meet up with people and mess with displays, and of course all the 35C3 angels & staff for making it all work.
