(NSFW) Vegas Post-Mortem

<self-flagellation>

It’s been almost 4 weeks since I gave my presentation on 3D printing sex toys at the security conference BSidesLV.  I came back from the trip exhausted and then hit a busy time at work, yada yada, uber procrastination.  So, please accept my apologies for the delay in following up!

In the coming weeks I’m hoping to write a more detailed post about what I discussed in my presentation, as well as things I missed and some next steps.

In the meanwhile, enjoy the video.  I thoroughly enjoyed presenting and was thrilled by how many conversations my talk sparked before throughout the conferences.  (And a few beforehand, including on the EuroTrash Security podcast and with TripWire Security.)

I’m told that I also presented at SkyTalks (“no cameras, no sobriety”) on Friday, August 2 after they had a last-minute cancellation.  I have no memory of this, but then, if you can remember SkyTalks, you weren’t really there.  ;-)

And for those of you playing along at home:  In the grand tradition of people releasing their code after a conference, I give you the OpenSCAD butt plug file that I used in my presentation.  Use it well; tweak it to your heart's desire.  If you prefer something printer-ready, there’s also an STL file for one of the dildoes that I passed around.  Let's see how long this repo lasts.

My first hacker conferences didn’t disappoint, and I’ll definitely try to make it to more!  Thanks to all those who made “The Sensual Side of 3D Printing” possible, including the BSidesLV mentorship program and SkyTalks; Javvad Malik, who took time out from prepping his own BSidesLV talk to be my presentation mentor from across the pond; and in particular, my boyfriend Brendan O’Connor, who held my hand through several piles of failed molten plastic, and who is all-around awesome.  (Side note:  his fantastic presentations at DEF CON and Black Hat have made something of a splash -- read more here!)  And, of course, thank you very much to everyone who attended the talks!
