 Mitigating DDoS Attacks 12/5/2012 
 <>The Internet 
 Society's New York Chapter (ISOC-NY <>) and the New 
 York Technology Council (NYTECH <>) will join the 
 Public Interest Registry (PIR <>) in presenting a 
 midday symposium "Mitigating DDoS Attacks: Best Practices for an 
 Evolving Threat Landscape <>" in New 
 York City on December 5 2012. Participating organizations include 
 Afilias, Google, Neustar, M3AAWG, Symantec, EFF, and De Natris 
 Consult. As a public service PIR are generously covering the $99 fee for 
 all attendees - thus registration is free!   The event will be webcast 
 live via the Internet Society Chapters Livestream Channel.

 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are an all-too-common 
 reality in today’s Internet landscape and are an escalating global 
 problem. Whether a DDoS attack is motivated by criminal intent, like 
 cyber extortion, or is executed as an extreme form of free expression, 
 the resulting service interruptions can have wide-ranging effects.  This 
 program will address the motives behind and targets of DDoS attacks. It 
 will also explore the various ways attacks are carried out, as well as 
 mitigation techniques and the risks of "unintended consequences."  The 
 goal is to foster a discussion and provide a platform for developing a 
 framework of best practices to mitigate DDoS attacks.

 unHoliday Meeting: Be a Grinch about Your Tech Gripe, Various

 For the past several years, our holiday party has been filled with the 
 notion of giving back to the community: your tips, your hacks, your 

 So many people have proved selfless and assisted others that we feel 
 it's time for a change. Let's be honest, we need a time to vent, and 
 there's no reason the holiday season should be immune.

 What are your gripes in technology? What do you hate dealing with at 
 your job? Is it some high- (or low-) level scripting language? Some 
 clunky and un-Unix-like application? Dealing with an under-documented 
 and buggy non-BSD operating system?

 Well, here's your chance to let others know how you feel. Prepare a ten 
 minute or so presentation, with maybe a slide or two, and make your 
 case. Be coherent and to-the-point, and maybe others will jump aboard 
 with your argument.

 Ping admin@ with your idea, and we look forward to having a meeting 
 which let's us vent out very unholiday season gripes.  We have a few 
 interesting submissions, and have space for a few more, so contact us as 
 soon as possible.


 A number of people ordered BeagleBone ARM boards at a discounted rate. 
 We *may* make another order.  The FreeBSD build is operational although 
 not quite production-ready, while work is continuing from NetBSD, and we 
 know of at least one person (in NYC*BUG) may be starting on an OpenBSD 

 If *interested* in ordering a BeagleBone at the discounted rate, please 
 ping admin@.  But to actually get an order in, it will be necessary to 
 pre-pay for the board when a time/date/place is specified.

 Let's open a discussion about what type of meeting to have on ARM.  A 
 basic walk-through with Tim Kientzle's github repository from ?

 A grab-bag of implementation possibilities by a few different people?

 The more people we have in NYC*BUG hacking on ARM, the better meeting(s) 
 we can have.
