I'll give a little presentation covering these topics:

Security basics (suitable for beginner users) How to see if you've been hacked (also probably mostly accessible for beginners) How to fix a hacked blog (probably mostly suitable for developers) How to safeguard in advance against hackery (somewhat accessible for beginners) I actually have very little real-life experience with any of this, so it'll be mostly a theoretical discussion based on what I can find on the web. If you have any real-life hacked blog stories, please share. If you have any particular questions you'd like to get answers for, feel free to shoot them my way in the next couple of days and I'll try to come prepared with answers.

If you plan to come, make sure you get directions to the facility in advance. The Technology Cooperative is downtown, not far from Barley's and just down the street from the Gay Street parking area, in the building beside the building that sports the big lit-up JFG sign. Coming from out west, I head toward the museum coming down Western, then turn left on Broadway and almost immediately right at a light onto Jackson. I park on the Gay Street bridge a little way up on the left and then walk a couple of blocks farther down Jackson to get to the Coop on the right.

Please RSVP if you plan to come so we can make sure to wait for full attendance before starting. I'll check email once I arrive, so if you RSVP but need to skip at the last minute, I'd be grateful for a quick note or a change of your RSVP setting at See you in about a week!
