Black Lodge Research hackerspace hosts a monthly event with two adjacent
user groups: Seattle Locksport and the DC206 Meeting. Seattle
Locksport’s monthly Eastside event takes place immediately before the
monthly DC206 Meeting. DC206 Meeting is the monthly meetup of the
Seattle-area DEF CON community. Locksport takes place 11:00-1:00. The
DC206 Meeting takes place immediately after Seattle Locksport, starting
at 1:00pm. A BBQ begins after the DC206 Meeting’s presentation ends.
This month the chef will be Hattz. We’re planning hamburgers and some
brats. We’d welcome some additional dishes, as well as some decent hard
ciders and beers


DC206 Meeting Presentation:

Travel Hacking For Make Benefit Belarus Museum of Cat! =^_^=
by @TProphet

Do you have frequent flier miles, hotel points, or bank points? Millions
of people let their points expire or spend them unoptimally on trips to
boring places like Hawaii instead of visiting the world’s best
undiscovered tourist hotspots. For example, why not visit the glorious
tractor factory and statue of Lenin in Minsk, Belarus? Speaking of
museums, there is a Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia.
TProphet will discuss travel hacking tools, techniques, mistake fares,
and some of the more interesting places he has visited using travel hacks.

TProphet has been phreaking since middle school and writing for 2600:
The Hacker Quarterly since high school. These days he’s into travel
hacking, and has leveraged mistake fares, miles and points to visit all
7 continents. TProphet is the founder of AwardCat (https://award.cat).

This event will be videotaped by Panic. During event, remote users can
interactively ask questions to speaker. You’ll need to sign in to Google
Chat on the below Youtube URL. If you cannot attend, here’s the URL for
the live streaming (and afterward, a copy of the video):
