22C3: Private Investigations (2005)

22C3 Speaker Interviews


After pointing you to a German summary in our podcast let’s also point you to four podcast interviews done with 22C3 speakers. Each podcast begins with a short German introduction but the interviews are held in English.

We should have done more of this stuff! And we certainly will in the future.

Rückschau auf den 22c3 im Chaosradio Express


Dear English-speaking readers of this blog: The remainder of this post is in German. Sorry for that, but the podcast featured is in German as well.

Aus unerfindlichen Gründen haben wir den Podcast Chaosradio Express hier noch nie erwähnt. Vor dem 22c3 gab es einige Sendungen, die sich mit dem Congress und seinen Vorbereitungen beschäftigt haben. Letzte Woche gab es dann den Chaosradio Express 014 (mp3, website), der auf den vergangenen 22. Chaos Communication Congress zurückblickt. Im Gespräch lassen Tim Pritlove und Jens Ohlig ausgewählte Vorträge und Präsentationen des Congress Revue …

22C3 recordings and slides


There has been some confusion regarding the AV recordings and slides of the 22C3 lectures. So let us explain what is coming and that everything will be fine.

The good news is: everything has been recorded! Yes, we have had our accidents but the fallback systems have worked so nothing is lost. As quite a few recordings have to be recovered from tape, the whole process will take a while but we are confident that we can deliver what everybody wants by the end of January.

More confusion has been generated as a couple of recordings have been available in WMV format up front which made many people …

Did you know?


Some people still get it wrong but I’d like to clarify it here one more time: it’s neither the “Chaos Computer Conference” nor the “Chaos Computer Congress”. It’s the “Chaos Communication Congress“. Not that it is too important but in the end we would be happy if you would just get it right ;)

In case you’re still confused, just stick to the “xxC3” moniker we have established in the recent years. It’s our primary choice for tagging as well.

Thanks for listening. This was a recording.

BlinkenArea 22C3 summary


The BlinkenArea considers positive results of the 22C3, too. Although our ISDN card broke for the 520 pixel projects at the third day, we received 613 calls to play Pong, Tetris, Retris, Snake, XXO, Pacman and Breakout. Some used other functions like displaying the time or sending love letters. 69024 times a movie was shown from our playlists.

bug fixed in Pong and Snake

If a second player calls, the ball will sometimes disappear. This bug in Pong we already fixed before the 22C3. At the congress we had no troubles with that one anymore. Some attentive gamers discovered a new “security hole” …

Slides are a-coming


We are still busy collecting slides of the talks from our speakers and will put them into the web-based schedule as soon as possible. If you have given a talk at 22C3 and still haven’t submitted your slides please do so now. Thanks.

22C3 Proceedings


The 22C3 Proceedings are available in PDF format. It’s a 17,1 MB download.

Thanks to everybody who bought the paper copy to support 22C3. If you are still interested in a copy, contact us.

22C3 is over now


22C3 ended today and we couldn’t be happier with how everything went. This have been four days of exciting activity and creativity, discussion and communication. Thanks to everybody for coming, sharing ideas and just being great.

Please stay subscribed to this blog. We’re going to point you to final activities regarding 22C3 in the coming weeks and we continue to publish here about upcoming CCC events and related stuff.

If you are still in Berlin, meet us at CCCB at Marienstrasse 11 on Sunday if you like. You’re welcome to join.

Blinken Bluetooth


The Blinken Bluetooth installation is running since day 2 in the Blinkenarea (Art&Beauty) and triggers blinken movies depending on Bluetooth device names and types and on Bluetooth events like l2ping and iscan.

Now the source code of the project is available from the Chaostal project page.
Happy blinking out there! :)
