I wasn't there last week (work). From the local GDC report the counter demo couldn't engage with the fascists because all the cops encircling the PEGIDA and stopping people from getting to them. The Toronto Against Fascism people attempted to form a barricade with their banner, from what I heard but it quickly felt apart because the cops were very aggressive.

The tag is printed on its box. All Chromecast packages are not sealed with clear tapes, so you can just pop it out, remove the plastic bag and take the content itself out. Go to the washroom and do it to be safe.

I found Deconstructed doesn't have the same taste as Intercepted, Mehdi Hasan was so tense and serious, it didn't have the feel of Jeremy Scahill hosted the other show. But regardless, both Deconstructed and Intercepted are great podcasts and everyone who are interested in following up the stuff happening, should definitely listen to them.

A laptop.

The computer store (Canada Computers) had a checkout counter that they hold customer's chosen stuff so it could checkout quicker. It was a refurbished laptop so the package did not have an RFID chip, and only the tag. I ripped the tag off, tucked the laptop under my shirt and walked it out. I don't think I could pull this again anytime soon, they added at least 2 employees at the counter any given time.

Reducing consumption is not enough. You must completely disconnect your life from it.

We have worked on DIY projects that relied entirely on self-manufactured and recycled materials. For example we have successfully produced PCL (Polycaprolactone) in our lab, a high heat and impact resistance polyester with biodegradable feature. We used it for nearly everything that required durable framework. Another of our project was home-based wall electric battery consisted of throwaway lithium-ion laptop batteries. They are currently powering our lab and hackerspace. When the power goes out, and it did happened, we could sustain with solar or wind based power source, then routed the power to the wall battery panels. We also worked on solar panels that were produced entirely with home-made materials that does not involved toxic rare earth or heavy metal that pollute the environment.

We are working on a video of how to get free ride with replay attack on Metropass and Presto card. Our minions have reverse engineered the Presto firmware and software to be able to clone the signals when someone tap the card on their machine.

For me I'm currently working on a video of how to make a cantenna and stealing neighbor wifi.
