Tits & Bits

pr0n 2.0

Tits-n-Bits chronicles the technical and social challenges working at an adult video website. The presentation is focused on: an industry backgrounder, encoding/codec technology, performance monitoring, security and other goodies from the dark-n-profitable side of the interweb.

Originally dared as a party joke, Tits-n-Bits is the resulting look behind-the-scenes of one adult video site - VideoBox.com. Launched in 2003, VideoBox pioneered custom video downloading; allowing users to steam only the video segments they're interested in. VB is unique with zero DRM and flat-rate billing. Recently the adult industry has adopted many of the popular "web 2.0" features - RSS, karma or feedback mechanisms, recommendation engines (e.g. Amazon), even XHTML/CSS compliant pages. These modern features along with many of the technical inner-workings will be discussed. Additionally the presentation will include crowd participation and unique visualizations will be shared.

With brief stopovers in bubble 1.0 (CPTH), WiFi (both community and for-pay), web 2.0 (SixApart) and now pr0n 2.0 - Matt 'petey' Peterson is poised to shed some light on this amusing industry. Petey has been knob turning since the days of Gopher and ISDN, thought ironically is still young enough to prefer lambic to real beer.
